Previously a travel retail exclusive, this single malt is made in tribute the lightly peated style spirit that Glenmorangie produced in a bygone age.
Time was when nearly every distillery in Scotland was using at least some peat to try their barley, producing whisky of varying degrees of smoke.
This dram has been aged in American oak Bourbon casks for 16 years, tempering the smokiness somewhat.
The end product is an unusual Glenmo’, that delicately weaves peat smoke alongside typical Glenmorangie flowers, vanilla, perfumed oak, caramel, dried fruits, earthy smoke, subtle wood tannins, pear, apples and toffee.
A fascinating rendition of Glenmorangie’s traditional style.
