Glenmorangie 15 Year Old Sauternes Wood Finish 1990s-2000s (75cl, 46%) ***sold***
A 15 year old whisky from Glenmorangie, this whisky has been finished in barriques from the Sauternes region of Bordeaux.
Aged for 15 years in total, this discontinued expression features the image of 'The Immortal Sir Walter Scott' on the label and is presented in an older 75cl bottle.
Long discontinued ex-wine casked bottling which won praise from Glenmorangie fans upon release, has since been replaced with a younger 12 year old example
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.
