One of the most recognisable names in Scotch whisky, Glenmorangie were quick out the gates to advertise and promote their Single Malt to a global audience as early as the 1960s. While this undoubtedly played a part in the rather sizeable market share they enjoy today, some credit has to be given to the whisky itself. Their famous stills stand as tall as a fully grown adult giraffe, and as well as giving them ultimate Top Trumps bragging rights, this has the benefit of producing a smoother and more delicate spirit.

Pioneers of cask finishes, the distillery has never shied away from experimentation, and under the guiding hand of Maestro Dr Bill Lumsden they continue to release a variety of expressions to keep "The Sixteen Men of Tain" rushed off their feet.

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.

Cask Type: Bourbon, Virgin Oak and Pedro Ximenez Casks

43% ABV / 1 litre
