Glenmorangie Grand Vintage Malt 1997, is vivacious and floral. With a heart aged in rare Château Montrose red wine casks, from Saint-Estèphe in Bordeaux, this single malt recalls a radiant new dawn at Glenmorangie.
Never attempted before or since at our Distillery, he hoped to create a Glenmorangie dramatically different from any other.
A full 13 years later, that single malt developed extraordinary berried depths. Delighted, Dr Bill began devising a complex marriage of casks to enhance its unparalleled taste. Taking whisky wholly aged in bourbon casks, he hinted at Glenmorangie’s hallmark citrus notes. With whisky finished for many years in oloroso sherry casks, he brought layers of sweetness and spicy finesse, while a skilful selection of secret casks also played their part.
