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.

This bottling is one of only 503 bottles released, and boasts its contents being the oldest of all official Glenmorangie releases worldwide at 41 years of maturation. As if this wasn't impressive enough, this piece is a collaborative effort with piano craftsmen, Steinway & Sons.

Their influence and contribution can be seen on the immaculate finishing and stature of the display case. It is the same as is lovingly tailored finish that Steinway & Sons bless their pianos with. Aaron Diehl, a jazz virtuoso and infamous pianist, composed a score especially to honour the launch of this whisky. He performed it in New York at the event itself.
