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.
Companta is the fifth annual release of the Private Edition series from Glenmorangie. The name comes from the Gaelic for "friendship".
The whisky is matured in Grand Cru casks from Clos de Tart and sweet fortified wine casks from Côtes du Rhône,
Dr Bill Lumsden says on balancing the casks: "With careful fine-tuning we reached a harmonious assemblage which proved the perfect balance; neither too bold nor too tame."
