Glenmorangie Grand Vintage Malt 1990 description
This Highland Single Malt is the first release in Glenmorangie's Bond House No.1 Collection. Distilled in 1990 from a problematic barley harvest the previous summer, the spirit produced defied the odds and proved sublime. The next quarter of a century saw the spirit mature in ex-bourbon casks with a small parcel in ex-sherry casks. Presented in a stunning coffret, the nose offers heady floral and fruity notes with heather honey, freesia, orange blossom, pear and apple. Silky in the mouth, sweet notes of orange, puff candy, honeycomb and creamy vanilla run under zesty gooseberry and menthol. The finish brings more fruitiness with baked apples and pears with brown sugar, malty biscuit and a hint of cloves.
The Bond House No.1 Collection is named for the largest of Glenmorangie's warehouses. For years it was home to casks of maturing spirit, but in 1990 the distillery sought to double the number of stills and - with the existing still house having no room for expansion - Warehouse No. 1 was transformed into a new still house, revered today as Glenmorangie's Highland cathedral.
