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.
It's the first release from Glenmorangie's Bond House No.1 Collection - a 1990 vintage single malt aged in ex-bourbon casks and a small portion of ex-Sherry casks. In his Whisky Bible 2017, Jim Murray gave this a massive 94 points and a Liquid Gold Award.
