Glenmorangie 18 Years 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, we blend them back together to create a whisky with a rich bouquet and full, rounded flavour. For a whisky of this age, the 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.
Honeyed gold in colour, Glenmorangie 18 Years Old tasting notes are balanced between honey, malt and flowery notes. Dates and figs emerge in the background with a hint of wood smoke. A long and enticing finish with the sweetness of dried fruit and subtle dryness of Oloroso nuttiness. On the nose, Glenmorangie 18 Years Old is rich, rounded and sweet with dried fruits and a complex floral fragrance.
