Glenmorangie 12 Year Old Three Cask Matured Limited Edition 1990s-2000s (70cl, 40%) ***sold***
This exclusive 12 year old Glenmorangie was a limited edition whisky from the distillery run by 16 men (The Sixteen Men of Tain). This was a perfect marriage of the three different types of cask - first fill Bourbon, new charred oak and ex-Rioja red wine casks.

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.
