Details
This deeply sweet and nutty small-batch release is the first Glenmorangie whisky to be finished in rare Palo Cortado sherry casks. Aged for 12 years, it brings a new elegance to the Highland distillery’s delicate style. 
Following the success of Glenmorangie's Malaga and Cognac Cask Finishes, this third release in the Barrel Select collection spent its first eight years mellowing in American white-oak bourbon casks. Here, it developed a smooth, soft character before being finished in the rare sherry casks for added oomph.

TASTING NOTES:
Uniquely complex and nutty

Appearance

Burnt amber.

Aroma

Rich, elegant and rounded. Toffee, fudge and vanilla sweetness entwine with mossy notes and hints of mulled wine, followed by aromas of honeyed ginger and milk-chocolate truffle dusted with cinnamon. A splash of water reveals notes of orange sherbet, carnations and Brazil nuts.

Taste

An oily yet peppery texture leads to a burst of rich, sweet flavours. Treacle toffee and milk chocolate are threaded with notes of clove, ginger, cinnamon and nutmeg. Meanwhile, fruity undertones of raisins, dark plums and bitter orange balance with rye bread and salted nuts. The finish is long and nutty, brimming with spice, leather and a touch of aniseed.

BLEND AND ORIGIN:
Glenmorangie Barrel Select Release Palo Cortado

Enchanted by the sweet and nutty flavours of Palo Cortado sherry, Director of Distilling Dr Bill Lumsden set about sourcing a handful of its hard-to-come-by casks.
 

He then filled these rare casks with whisky that had already spent eight years maturing in ex-bourbon casks, hoping that, after four years, it would develop a unique rich, complex elegance. And this is the impressive result…
