The now annual, exclusive releases have gained quite a reputation since Sonalta grabbed our attention only four short years ago. Since then the collection has won overwhelming praise, massive scores and a swath of awards from judges, bloggers and drinkers the world over.
Whilst highly experimental, the whiskies are collectively a crafted enquiry, rather than experimentation for its own sake. Renowned Whiskey scholar, Charles McLean, described a previous release, (Artein) as “Stylish, understated, reserved. An Audrey Hepburn of malts!"- what less to expect from those 16ft 10 1/4 inch stills on stilettos? (Glenmorangie's well known for having the tallest stills in Scotland). So, where to now for the wizard of wood? Time to Dust off the Tux and take Audrey to the ball in flat out Haut Couture. Welcome to the red carpet, ''Companta''. Take 1995 and 1999 vintage distillations and give them Glenmorangie’s signature, ex-bourbon, ten year maturation, and then dress them up with one of whisky’s most complicated style statements: Red wine maturation.
For the jaw dropping gown add 8 years in ex Rasteau VDN barrels (fortified Grenache from a top Southern Rhone Village)
For the diamond necklace and Tiara, employ nothing less than top notch Burgundy barrels, with four years in Red wine casks from Grand Cru Monopole Clos de Tart (the 2010 vintage is currently $400.00 + per bottle). The final result - 60% Clos de Tart and 40% Rasteau. The use of the fortified Rasteau casks served to fill in what Lumsden saw as an excessive austerity from the Clos de Tart barrels.
With wood sourced from such esteemed sources, it's not surprising that Companta maintains another one of Dr. Bill’s signatures – clean wood character. Despite Companta being more of an extended or double maturation, rather than a token “finish”, it has avoided the sweaty flatness, or even rubbery taints that the sulphide rich environment of a wine barrel often imparts to the whisky it holds. Strictly Limited to one bottle per customer. Extremely limited. 46% Alc./Vol.
