A small batch release from a big name in the whisky world. This Glenmorangie Cognac Cask Finish is an exceptional release from the Highland distillery. This 13-year-old single malt whisky was matured in American white oak bourbon casks and given a finish in hand-selected cognac casks. This special flourish in the cognac cask establishes spice and leather to go hand in hand with Glenmorangie’s renowned fruitiness and smoothness. Bottled in May 2021, this dram is free from chill filtration, is bottled at 46% abv, and is a limited release.
Aromas of baked orchard fruits, forest floor, and butter candy waft upwards. The palate is one of toffee apples, pears, almonds, and mandarin orange. The finish is rich, long, and elegant, with a little zing of clove, star anise, and dried spices.
