In the far north of Scotland, beside the ancient Royal Burgh of Tain, lies the Glenmorangie Distillery. Established in 1843, the Distillery was named Glenmorangie, Scots Gaelic for ‘Glen of Tranquillity', perfectly describing its peaceful setting on the banks of the picturesque Dornoch Firth, a vast sea estuary and a worldwide Site of Special Scientific Interest. To raise awareness for the conservation of the Dornoch Firth, Glenmorangie has partnered with the Marine Conservation Society to preserve this precious waterway. It is this unique location that is perfectly celebrated by their latest limited edition travel exclusive; Glenmorangie Dornoch. A classic Glenmorangie spirit matured in ex-bourbon American white oak then transferred to ex-Amontillado casks.
Dr Bill Lumsden, Glenmorangie’s Director of Whisky Creation describes the expression; “Here in the far north east of Scotland, by our distillery on the shores of the Firth, the air is clean and fresh, but there’s a perceptible distant smokiness too, something of the Scottish wilds. And there’s the seashore note too. That’s what I’ve tried to capture in this whisky.“
94 Points (superstar whiskies which give us all a reason to live) - Jim Murray’s Whisky Bible 2018 “The secret to its charm is the clarity and layering. Even on delivery the malt arrives on all levels and in different hues; ranging from sweet and fresh to a duller, oak dried digestive biscuit – but quite tightly bound. A rare Glenmorangie… a real treat.”
The surroundings of the Glenmorangie Distillery are rich in heritage and legend. Their stories have inspired a collection of whiskies with innovative cask assemblages and intriguing extra-maturations, which bring the ancient provenance of the Glenmorangie single malt to life.
Tasting Note: Bright gold with pale straw hue. Peat adds an unexpected dimension of sweet smoky apples, complemented by vibrant sweet nutty flavours layered on warm toffee and dried fruits. Distinctive Floral notes finish, softness of vanilla with hints of citrus.
