The Glenmorangie 18 years is a malt grown in American white oak casks, approximately 30% is transferred into Spanish Oloroso casks to spend three years more maturing. Then, when both elements have reached 18 years, they are blended back together to create a whisky with a rich bouquet and great flavour.
Honeyed golden colour.
Aroma: honey hazelnut toffee.
Palate: rich, rounded and sweet with dried fruits and a complex floral fragrance.The taste is balanced between honey, malt and flowery scents. Dates and figs in the background with a hint of wood smoke.
The finish is long and enticing with the sweetness of dried fruit and subtle dryness of Oloroso nuttiness.
