Glenmorangie 18 has taken “The Prize” — beating all comers in its category. 

Located near Tain in the northern Highlands, the Glenmorangie Distillery was founded in 1843 when the Matheson brothers converted the Morangie farm into a distillery by the sea. The stills are the tallest in Scotland at 26’ — ensuring that only the lightest vapors make it to the top and resulting in a smooth, fresh, and elegant range of 23 fine single malt Whiskies. Glenmorangie is the best selling single malt Whisky in Scotland and the rest of the UK, and one of Uncle Flaviar’s personal favorites. 

If you're already a fan of Glenmorangie single malts, then you understand. If you are new to Glenmorangie, you — my friend — are in for a treat. The core single malt in the Glenmorangie line-up is a classic Highlander aged for a decade in ex-Bourbon casks. The 18 YO takes this winning formula up a few notches in complexity and sophistication by starting with an initial aging of fifteen years. Then about 1/3 of the spirit is placed into Oloroso Sherry casks for the remaining three years while the rest stays put. Both parts are then remarried for bottling. The end result is deliciously rich and sophisticated.

Scotch Whisky is almost never aged in new barrels. Bourbon and Tennessee Whiskey casks are usually used for maturation, while many times ageing process and flavour finishing is concluded in various wine casks, such as sherry or port.

The drinkability is only bested by its elegantly bright flavor profile. Exceptional.

Ryan,
I was not impressed. Maybe mine was a bad bottling/cask? Nose was light and neither pleasant nor repugnant. Taste was lacking. Finish was short. Nothing terrible but not enjoyable. Almost as if they accidentally put 8 year old whiskey in the bottle.
Jeffrey
Jeffrey,
Very nice smooth taste. Great price.

One of the most well balanced scotch in the $100 price range. While each person will taste different notes, I enjoy the light smoke against the slight honey sweetness. I recommend enjoying with a few whisky stones to give it a slight chill without watering down.

An excellent dram from Glenmorangie and one to add to the whisky collection.
