The last hours of a perfect autumn day when the world looks like a golden dream filled with cookie-coloured leaves and butterscotch skies... What would that taste like?
The answer is, this dazzling, luminous whisky – a rhapsody of warm tones like purple heather, leaves swirling in the wind and hues of lemon, copper and gold.
To create it, Glenmorangie gathers the silky, fruity spirit from giraffe-high stills and let it steep in American oak casks. No less than 15 years later, a portion is transferred into Oloroso sherry casks for three more years.
Nose: Rich, rounded and sweet with dried fruits and a complex floral fragrance.
Palate: A balance between honey, malt and flowery scents.
Finish: Dates and figs emerge in the background with a hint of wood smoke in the finish.
