For more than ten years, Glenmorangie, renowned Scottish malt whiskey distiller, has been pioneering the use of different types of casks in which to finish the maturation of malt whisky. Their quest is to find the ultimate aging nuance. With the release of the Margaux finish, they may well have accomplished that.
The unique marriage of grape and grain offers flavours from both the wine absorbed in the maturation barracks and the unique characteristics of the wood itself. Chateau Margaux, the famous Bordeaux First Growth wine producer, sources barrels made from the Tronçais oak forest in central France, originally planted in the 17th century by Louis XIV. The climate in this region produces trees of smaller diameter which provide a fine grain and high tannin content. Powerful wood-derived flavours have been imparted into the floral, fruity complexity of the whisky. Master distiller, Mr. Bill Lumsden describes the whisky in the following words: "Zesty orange, apple and ginger wine notes flood through before deeper hints of spicy black pepper and cinnamon intertwine to give an overall combination of boldness and subtlety that perfectly captures the spirited essence of Scotland and the passionate soul of France.” Realize that Margaux Hemmingway was conceived over a bottle of Chateau Margaux, the wine. Approach this whisky with similar caution!
Only 3511 bottles were ever produced of this 1987 vintage which marries the finest French winemaking heritage with one of Scotland’s favourite malt whiskies. Packed like the Crown Jewels in a clear acrylic display case standing on a black plinth, with each bottle accompanied by a booklet that tells the story of the journey taken to create this exciting whisky. Each bottle is hand numbered and signed by Bill Lumsden, Glenmorangie Master Distiller. Very rare. Only 2 bottles available.color> Tasting note: Autumn gold with russet highlights.
