A four pack of 100ml bottles from one of Scotland’s most famous distilleries, Glenmorangie.
This set offers a taste of four of Glenmorangie’s standard range.
Starting with the Original, this is the classic offering from the distillery, presenting a wonderful introduction into Glenmorangie’s house-style, with the light floral spice we have come to associate with the Highlander. The whisky has been aged for 10 years and has a restrained oak character and perfect balance.
The Lasanta has been aged for a little longer – 12 years, and has been finished in oloroso and Pedro Ximénez casks, giving this whisky an extra layer of complexity, with notes of dried fruit, dark oak and Christmas spice. This whisky is bottled at 43% ABV for a little extra edge.
The Quinta Ruban is also 12 years old, and has been finished in port casks. This extra maturation has imparted flavours of sweet red wine, red berries and spicy oak to the whisky. This whisky is bottled at 46% ABV and without chill filtration, ensuring that the full flavours of the spirit can be enjoyed.
Finally, completing the set, is the Nectar D’Or, another 12 year old. This whisky has also undergone a cask finish, having had an extra maturation in Sauternes barrels, with the sweet wine granting flavours of lemon cake, light white sugar, honey and nutmeg. The whisky is also bottled at 46% ABV, and without chill filtration.
All in all, this is a superb set of larger samples, featuring a great selection of Glenmorangie’s range.
