Old grain, new story.

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.
  This little gem at hand was again designed by Dr. Bill Lumsden, their main Whisky creator, but this is definitely not their typical dram. Glenmorangie Tùsail is the sixth entry from the celebrated Glenmorangie’s Private Collection, showing off the distillery’s experiments with different varieties of barley.

Named after the Gaelic expression for “of the origins”, Tùsail has been made using an old strain of quality barley, called Maris Otter, which is much more common in English Ales than Scottish Whiskies. In fact, we can’t think of any other Whisky made from this stuff, but we can guarantee the recipe works. The grain, which has been floor malted by hand mind you, has less starch and more protein, which means less alcohol, but more flavour. Hooray! 

Matured and aged in a small batch of specially selected ex-bourbon casks, the taste is bold and intense with nutty, gently rustic maltiness. If you want to try something unique, you should definitely go for it.

In the original cult-classic film “The Highlander,” Connor McLeod “of the Clan McLeod” orders a Glenmorangie—to the surprise and admiration of the bartender—after he recovers the sword he hid in Madison Square Garden.

Scotland is home to more than 20 million casks of maturing Whisky. That’s four for every person living there. Nuts!
Categories of Scotch Whisky: Single malt, Blended malt (formerly called Vatted malt), blended, single grain and blended grain Scotch.
Single Malt Scotch Whisky is made in Scotland using a pot still distillation process at a single distillery, with malted barley as the only grain ingredient. It must be matured in oak casks in Scotland for at least three years (most Single Malts are matured longer, though).
Whisky or Whiskey? The spelling differs geographically. In Scotland, Japan, and some other parts of the world, distilleries usually spell it Whisky; in Ireland and the USA, they spell it Whiskey.
All of the stills that were added later in expansions, are replicas of those that were built in 1887.
Blended Whiskies are the result of years of craftsmanship and dedication. A master blender does not simply wake up one day with a profound ability to create a cohesive and enjoyable liquid. From nosing the liquid to working out quantities of each different grain and malt to go into the blend, a master blender can take years, if not decades, to train.
