One of the world's best selling old single malts Glemorangie's spirit flows from Scotland's tallest stills, over 16 feet tall for those that are counting. Over the years Bill Lumsden has been at the forefront of research into the influence of the cask on whisky and as such Glenmorangie are the leading exponents of whisky 'finishes', be that sherry, wine or virgin oak. The distillery selects its wood from the Mark Twain forest in the Ozark mountains and ensures that the wood is air dried rather than kilned.

This is amongst the rarest of Glenmorangies. Notable for being the first bottling from the distillery to carry a vintage and also the first to receive extra-maturation, or 'finishing'. The whisky was matured in Bourbon casks for 22 years and finished in Oloroso for 1 year. This is enough make any Glenmorangie fan weak at the knees.
