Glenmorangie The Original Mini
Scotland, United Kingdom
Creators of Highland Single Malt Scotch Whiskies since 1843. Glenmorangie has long been known for its expertise in wood. Thirty years ago, our whisky creators have innovated in the art of extra-maturation, transferring spirit first matured in ex-bourbon casks, into ex-wine casks, so that it could gain further layers of flavour. Perfect for all those who wish to start or continue their journey into single malts, this award-winning range showcases our skills in cask management.
The original expression of our elegant, floral spirit and the real backbone of the Glenmorangie range. A 10 Years Old single malt, The Original is produced by marrying the delicate spirit that emerges from Scotland's tallest stills, with first and second fill American white oak casks. It is here, maturing for ten long years in a range of ex-bourbon casks such as our famous slow-grown and air-dried 'designer casks' from Missouri, that our raw spirit develops a perfect balance between sweetness and complexity. Resulting in a mature spirit that is soft, mellow and creamy. Perfect for enjoying at any time. On the nose the scent of citrus and ripening peaches is softened by the aroma of vanilla.
First, vanilla is detected on the tongue before it ripples along the palate bringing a burst of flowery fruitiness. About a minute after tasting, you are left with a clean and salving aftertaste with hints of orange and peach.
