Glenmorangie 18 Year Old is a single malt Scotch whisky of serious distinction. Once it has spent fifteen years maturing in American white oak casks approximately 30% is transferred into Spanish Oloroso casks to spend a further three years maturing. Then, when both elements have reached 18 years, they are blended back together to create a whisky with a rich bouquet and full, rounded flavour.
This rich, rounded whisky combines sweet dried fruit notes with a more complex floral fragrance. On the palette flavours of dates and figs develop in the background with a hint of wood smoke.
For a whisky of this age this expression has maintained, thanks to the delicate floral spirit and fine Oloroso casks, an incredible degree of vibrancy where the raisiny sweetness of the sherry has been toned down by the nuttiness of the American oak.
