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.
Inspired by King James IV's annual pilgrimage to the shrine of St Duthac, the patron saint of Tain, Dr Bill Lumsden has created a whisky fit for a King.
Representing the two side of the the King's character are two parcels of whisky that were initially aged in Bourbon casks and then split with some being finished in the King of Sherries, Pedro Ximenez - exemplifying the King's tempered, diplomatic side - and the other finished in Virgin Oak casks - representing the King's fiery impulsive nature.
