Glenmorangie Grand Vintage 1996
Scotland, United Kingdom
Sixth in the Bond House No. 1 Collection, Grand Vintage 1996 is the first Glenmorangie whisky to be aged in specially designed casks. This is a rare chance to own a piece of the distillery's history.The Collection’s sixth release, aged entirely in first-fill casks from Americam oak, showcases a supreme creaminess from the wood.
Fresh and perfumed, like a bouquet of roses, carnations and jasmine, with a piquant hint of coriander. Mandarin orange and pear follow on, enhanced by a fruity, candied sweetness.
A zesty, citrus mouthfeel brings a surge of oranges and lemons, tempered by ripples of vanilla and fudge. Next, with remarkable finesse for a whisky of such age, come subtle notes of ginger, sweet chilli and oak. The finish is delicate with the softness of cake mix, almonds and pear.
