August 2021 gave us another magic bottle from Glenmorangie.
In the 1730s, a brewery was built in the Scottish Highlands, namely on the Morangie Farm, and a hundred years later, it was refurbished into a distillery we all know and love: Glenmorangie. Their Spirits are not created equal - they are raised as aristocrats. The water comes from the pristine spring of Tarlogie and the magic that happens is a result of teamwork of sixteen men, affectionately known as the Sixteen Men of Tain. These knights of Whisky distill the potion in the tallest stills in Scotland, creating a lighter and more refined Whisky.
Glenmorangie 13 Year Old Cognac Cask Finish Scotch Whisky graced us with its presence in August 2021. Dr Bill Lumsden is a rock star who oversees Whisky creation at this iconic distillery and for this release, the Whisky wizard experimented with Cognac casks. The recipe went something like this: matured in ex-Bourbon casks for at least 8 years and finished in Cognac casks for 4 extra years. Clocking in at 92 proof, this full-bodied dram demonstrates incredible depth and unique flavors of orange oil, digestive biscuits, ginger, and almond oil.
