One of the world's best selling old single malts, Glenmorangie'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 is the leading exponent 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.
Jim Murray’s Whisky Bible 2014 named the virgin-oak-matured Glenmorangie Ealanta as the best whisky in the world.
Murray described the limited edition single malt as “borderline perfection” with “one of the longest finishes of any Scotch this year”.
Glenmorangie Ealanta is the fourth annual release in its Private Edition range.
Scots Gaelic for 'skilled and ingenious', Ealanta is 19 years old, fully matured in virgin American white oak casks with a provenance that stretches all the way to the mountains of Missouri and the Mark Twain National Forest.
