Cognac Cask Finish, this single malt is aged for eight years in ex-bourbon casks and then finished for four years in ex-Cognac casks. The aroma showcases a lot of juicy white grape and tropical notes of guava and mango. Lemon and buttery pastries, so common to this Highland malt, are present in abundance. A subtle leathery quality arrives that adds welcome contrast to the classic distillery character. The palate, the finishing is more immediately apparent with that white grape and spicy French oak shining brighter. Notes of clove-studded orange and vanilla custard ride an oily wave, accented with a bit of peppercorn and candied citrus, into a gently warming finish of tobacco, baking spice, and juicy stone fruit.

Here in the far North of Scotland , near the ancient Royal Burgh of Tain, lies Glenmorangie. The Glen of Tranquility where malt whisky has been distilled since before 1700. The water rises in the Tarlogie Springs close to the distillery, and having filtered through lime and sandstone for half a century, is unusually hard and rich in minerals. Glenmorangie's elegant swan-neck stills are the tallest in the Highlands, so only the lightest and purist of vapours can ascend and condense. The whisky is matured in selected casks of American mountain oak which allow the natural flavour of Glenmorangie to develop fully.
