GLENMORANGIE, BARREL SELECT RELEASE NO. 2, 'COGNAC CASK FINISH' AGED 13 YEARS

 

HIGHLANDS, SCOTLAND

 

 

We were thrilled to showcase the inaugural release from Glenmorangie’s anticipated Barrel Select Reserve program last year, and after your response, we knew we needed to up the ante. We’ve done just that with today’s Barrel Select Release, a 13-year Highlands Scotch that aged first in ex-Bourbon casks for eight years and finished maturing for five years in ex-Cognac casks. This single malt unites notes of spice and leather with Glenmorangie’s characteristic bright fruitiness. With an incredibly lengthy list of accolades and awards, Glenmorangie and Ardbeg’s Director of Distilling Dr. Bill Lumsden has won the distinguished ‘Master Distiller of the Year’ title from the annual International Whisky Competition a record-breaking four times, and is also the only person to have ever won the International Spirits Challenge prestigious ‘Master Distiller of the Year’ award twice. With a self-proclaimed “low boredom threshold,” Dr. Bill’s mind seems to be always spinning with new ideas to invigorate the world of single malts and he has done it again with today’s release. For one week, we’re offering our Concierge customers first access at an amazing sub-$80 price point!

 

Today’s small-batch spirit was distilled on February 22, 2008 and placed in American oak ex-Bourbon barrels for eight years, taking on the smooth, light texture and the citrus and vanilla spice character for which Glenmorangie has become known. Eight years later, inspired by its soft, mellow taste, Dr. Bill selected the whisky for a unique experiment with Cognac casks; after five years, the whisky has been transformed. Aromas of apple tart and toffee are deepened by a subtle earthiness, while flavors of baked pears, almond, mandarin orange, and baking spice carry through to the palate—making for an elegant, delicious dram. Take advantage of your access to special pricing on this new, never-before-seen style of Glenmorangie today!
