Production Capacity: Glenmorangie Plc.
House style: Citric, a little spicy with a nutty finish. A light elegant dram.
Glenmorangie distillery lies just north of Tain, on the wind-swept coastline of Easter Ross. The distillery has only sixteen distillery workers - two for each of its eight stills. These stills are the tallest found in the Highlands, of the same design as those used in the 1880's which were actually second-hand gin stills. Their height means that only the purest vapours reach their necks and condense. The owners Macdonald and Muir take great care in cask selection, using US oak from the Osark mountains. The 'designer hogsheads' which they began to use in 1995 (when the charming Mr Bill Lumsden arrived at the company) are now showing dividends in the wonderful Artisan Cask. They also use a hard water source, which is unusual.
Nose: A strong Aruba espresso fused with a treacly plum pudding, rich with sherry, and candied orange peel. Taste: A contrast of rich sweetness with an explosive crackle of sizzling spices and bitter mocha. Finish: A fresh spring-like breeze of mint with a bright citrus lemony-green quality.
