Glenmorangie 18 Year Old Single Highland Rare Malt, bottle from 1980s (70cl, 43%)
Collectable, desirable, rare!!! A wonderful 18 year old whisky bottled in the 1980s era which saw the onsite maltings close.
A legendary pure class for which Glenmorangie has been famous through many generations and distillations.
This 18 year old Highland malt from master Highland distillers Glenmorangie was bottled in the 1980's. This old presentation is incredibly difficult to source, more so since the 18 year old's from the distillery these days come in the cognac style bottles.
Despite being owned by blenders, MacDonald & Muir, for most of the 20th century, Glenmorangie had an early focus on bottling its single malt. Some records show that its single malt was being sold as early as the late 19th century. This became the distillery's main output in 1959, and with the unique flavours derived from Scotland's tallest stills, Glenmorangie is now one of the world's biggest selling malts. As a result, the distillery portfolio over the years has been extensive, and little has been spared for independent bottlers. Pioneers of cask finishes, the distillery has never shied away from experimentation, and under the guiding hand of Maestro Dr Bill Lumsden they continue to release a variety of expressions to keep "The Sixteen Men of Tain" rushed off their feet.
