First America, then Sherry.

The Glenmorangie Distillery was founded in 1843 when the Matheson brothers converted the Morangie farm into a distillery. It lies just north of Tain, on the wind-swept coastline of Easter Ross. Their stills are the tallest found in Scotland – as tall as a giraffe, apparently – of the same design as those used in the 1880's which were in fact second-hand Gin stills. Which means that only the very lightest vapours make it to the top, resulting in a smooth and elegant Scotch Whisky.
In 2004 the distillery was sold to LVMH, a French multinational luxury goods conglomerate and has since adopted a brave strategy of giving their drams French-sounding names, which on the looks of things, has payed out for them.

Glenmorangie 18 YO Extremely Rare has an interesting maturation story. First, the Whisky spends 15 years maturing in ex-Bourbon casks, after which 30% is transferred to Oloroso Sherry casks for an extra 3 years of maturation. When both elements have reached 18 years of age they're combined once more to create an extremely powerful expression. A combination of the raisiny sweetness from the Sherry, and nuttiness of the American Oak.

Member Reviews and Ratings of Glenmorangie 18 YO Extremely Rare
Almost a 10, citrusy with a nice balance but not overbearing smokiness. Great balance. Always a go to!!
Citrus, fruity, awesome!
The drinkability is only bested by its elegantly bright flavor profile. Exceptional.
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.
Very nice smooth taste. Great price.
Best scotch I've ever had so far.
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.
