The 18 Years Old is a single malt Scotch whisky of serious distinction. Once it has spent fifteen years maturing in American white oak casks approximately 30% is transferred into Spanish Oloroso casks to spend a further three years maturing. Then, when both elements have reached 18 years, we blend them back together to create a whisky with a rich bouquet and full, rounded flavour. For a whisky of this age this expression has maintained, thanks to our delicate floral spirit and fine Oloroso casks, an incredible degree of vibrancy where the raisiny sweetness of the sherry has been toned down by the nuttiness of the American oak.

Overview

Its Origins

Glenmorangie is the best-selling malt whisky in Scotland and the distillery sits at the banks of the Dornoch Firth, near the village of Tain, Ross-shire. The setting is very much a little ‘glen of tranquillity’, as the translation from the Gaelic describes it. The staff comprises the ‘Sixteen Men of Tain’ who make the whisky and they are featured in the company’s advertising; all are local celebrities. Licensed activity began in 1843 with the conversion of a brewery by William Mathieson. When the distillery was first set up, rather than go to the expense of buying new stills, the distillery manager purchased second-hand swan necked stills that had been used in a gin distillery. These stills are particularly high at 5.14 metres tall, the tallest in Scotland. The ‘boil pot’ each of them has – a bulge below the neck of the still which ensures that only the lightest, finest alcohols pass over in distillation. These unusual stills along with water from the Tarlogie Spring help to give Glenmorangie its unique flavour. In the 1990s Glenmorangie started experimenting with different wood finishes for their whiskies. As well as the traditional use of casks that had been previously filled with Sherry, they also experimentd with casks from Port, Madeira and even one that had been previously used for Hermitage in the French town of the same name, Tain!
