Glenmorangie 12 Year Calvados Cask Finish Scotch Whisky marks a distinctive and delightful addition to the Glenmorangie portfolio. As the fifth release in the Barrel Select series, this small-batch single malt explores the innovative and nuanced flavors that different cask finishes can offer. This particular expression, finished in French Calvados casks, is the first of its kind from Glenmorangie, infusing the classic Scotch with notes of orchard fruits and floral subtleties, revealing new mellow depths.

Unique Cask Finish and Craftsmanship:

Under the guidance of Dr. Bill Lumsden, Glenmorangie's Director of Whisky Creation, this exquisite whisky initially matured in American white oak bourbon casks, is transferred to ex-Calvados casks for a final maturation period. These casks, which previously held fine Calvados from Normandy for 20 years, impart layers of complex fruit flavors and floral nuances to the whisky.

Tasting Experience:

  • Nose: The aroma entwines jasmine with the comforting scents of baked apples and pears, creating a fragrantly inviting bouquet.
  • Palate: The palate offers a soft and rich texture, showcasing mellow fruits such as baked apples and pears, beautifully complemented by subtle floral notes of jasmine and narcissus, along with a hint of vanilla.
  • Finish: The finish is delicately rich, leaving a lingering impression of mellow fruitiness and understated floral elegance.

Exceptional Distillation Process:

Glenmorangie's whiskies are distilled in Scotland's tallest stills, which stand as tall as a giraffe. This unique aspect allows more space for taste and aroma to develop, ensuring a whisky that is both delicate and complex.
