Glenmorangie Warehouse 3 Reserve from 2000s (1L, 40%) ***sold***
Matured for over 10 years and drawn from first fill ex-bourbon casks in Warehouse No. 3, the oldest of the original 19th century warehouses at the distillery in Tain. This was a limited exclusive bottling for duty free in the 2000s.
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.
