Producing whisky since 1843 in Tain, the Glenmorangie is renowned worldwide for its scotch of great elegance and complexity. The natural benchmark in the Highlands along with Macallan and Glenlivet, among others, Glenmorangie tends to be slightly fuller-bodied than others, given their use of slightly newer barrels.
Glenmorangie 10yr, the Original ($44.99): Aged exclusively in first- and second-fill bourbon casks. Mellow, softer with a telltale nose of vanilla from American white oak.
Glenmorangie 12yr, Quinta Ruban ($61.99): Aged in first- and second-fill bourbon casks much like the Original for 10 years, then finished and matured in ruby port casks. Darker, with notes of raisins, dried fruit and caramel.
Glenmorangie 12yr, Nectar d’Or ($72.99): Aged in first- and second-fill bourbon casks much like the Original for 10 years, then finished and matured in Sauternes wine casks. Brighter, with notes of tropical fruits, ginger, and white baking spices.
