Lot number: 073-6573

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.

A very special bottling of Glenmorangie was distilled only in the year 1971 and was selected to mark the 150th anniversary of the distillery's 'official' opening in 1843.

Distilled: 1971

43% ABV / 70cl
