A Monumental Whisky, Born of Stone. While crafting Glenmorangie Artein Dr. Bill Lumsden, Glenmorangie’s Head of Distilling & Whisky Creation, was intrigued by the influence of stone in the natural ingredients of the whisky, especially considering the material’s special significance to us. This relationship begins with the Hilton of Cadboll Stone, an ancient monument that is the whisky’s inspiration. But of no less importance is the layer upon layer of limestone that filters our Tarlogie Spring water, giving Artein its fruity aromas and layers of complexity.
Glenmorangie Ealanta is the fourth annual release in our award winning Private Edition range. Scots Gaelic for ‘skilled and ingenious’, Ealanta is a 19 Years Old Glenmorangie, fully matured in virgin American white oak casks with a provenance that stretches all the way to the mountains of Missouri and the Mark Twain National Forest.
The porous oak wood, air-dried for over 2 years, but in this instance never seasoned with any other whisky, allows our precious spirit to extract maximum flavours as nature intended – producing a whisky of incredible taste and smoothness, with layers of vanilla and candied orange peel, interwoven with sugar coated almonds.
Inspired by Dr Bill’s travels across France’s greatest vineyards and the friends made along the way, Companta is a refined balance between bold spice and rich, smooth sweetness; the result of a careful assemblage of spirit extra matured in casks from a famous Grand cru ‘Monopole’ in Bourgogne and those of a lusciously sweet fortified wine from Côtes du Rhône.
The 6th release from Glenmorangie’s award-winning Private Edition, Tùsail is the product of a carefully-selected parcel of Maris Otter barley, floor-malted by hand using traditional techniques, and non chill-filtered.
A rich winter variety of barley first introduced in 1965, Maris Otter was bred specifically to meet the demand for a high quality brewing malt and recognized for its ability to impart rich, rustic malty flavours. Now used only by a select few who continue, like Glenmorangie, to uphold an ethos of sacrificing yield for quality by using only the finest ingredients, the result is a whisky celebrating the variety’s renowned taste profile.
Glenmorangie Milsean (Scots Gaelic for ‘sweet things’ and pronounced ‘meel-shawn’) is a single malt whisky full of intense candied fruit flavours and mouth-watering sweetness. It has been created from Glenmorangie matured in ex-bourbon casks and then extra-matured in former wine casks, re-toasted for the purpose. This distinctive cask preparation replicates something of the moreish sweetshop flavours in a single malt whisky.
It is the seventh annual release in our multi-award-winning and always intriguing Private Edition range. And Glenmorangie Milsean, with its remarkable sweetshop allusions, may be the most intriguing of them all.
Having spent 10 long years maturing in American white oak casks this whisky is transferred into Spanish ex-Pedro Ximenez (PX) casks for its final two years of extra-maturation. Often described as the ‘king of sherry casks’ this rare wood was brought back from Jerez in Spain by our head of whisky creation Dr Bill Lumsden. Safely back in Tain it can then begin to weave its magic into Glenmorangie Sonnalta PX, adding the famous sweetness and intensity of the cask’s previous resident. Glenmorangie Sonnalta PX is the first release in our prestigious Private Edition range: carefully selected, limited edition whiskies chosen from the ‘cabinet of curiosities’ of Dr Bill Lumsden, head of our Whisky Creation Team.
Glenmorangie Finealta is a painstaking recreation of a recipe dating back to 1903. Matured in a combination of American white oak casks and Spanish Oloroso sherry casks this whisky is unusual for its light touch of peatiness – a reminder of a time when Glenmorangie dried its barley in a peat fired kiln. Distillery archives show that at this time, Glenmorangie Highland Single Malt was being served at The Savoy in London. Making this whisky a window onto a grander age, where optimistic young souls toasted sweeping changes within Art, fashion, and technology. And where society demanded a drink of both depth and distinction. Glenmorangie Finealta is the second release in our prestigious Private Edition range: carefully selected, limited edition whiskies chosen from the ‘cabinet of curiosities’ of Dr Bill Lumsden, head of our Whisky Creation Team.
