Glenmorangie routinely introduce new twists on the Original, and the Private editions are prime examples. Spios brings us to the ninth annual PE release and is the first Single Malt Scotch Whisky ever to be fully matured in American rye whiskey casks. The step towards rye coincides with a popular resurgence in this drier, spicier style of whiskey.

It's a project that's been on Bill Lumsden's mind for some time. “Back in the late 90s, when I was introduced to rye, I found it was a style of whiskey on life support,” he explains. “But I believed our smooth house style would complement the nuances of ex-rye casks. So, 10 years on from my first involvement with it, the challenge was finding the right casks.”

Lumsden's interest piqued when famed Whisky & Beer writer, Michael Jackson visited him with a sample of the then obscure American whiskey. It was Lumsden's first time (in the 90's rye whiskey was next to impossible to get your hands on). It took him a decade to secure x Rye casks for this edition which is limited to around 5000 cases.

Tasting note: 'Spìos' is Scots Gaelic for ‘spice and this lives up to its name. Bright gold. Aromas of oak shavings and hints of mint chocolate with just enough latent malt shining through the peppery heat. Creamy in the middle stages before a climatic flare of sharp-rye spices, fresh-sawn oak and peppermint. Dovetails into sweeter notes of vanilla fudge with distinct rye late in the aftertaste. A fascinating experiment in harmonising the flavours of two very different whisky styles. 92 points 46% Alc./Vol. Non chill filtered.

Glenmorangie master distiller, Bill Lumsden, delivers one of the most consistently high quality portfolios in Scotland. But it’s the quality of his ‘entry level’ product, the Glenmorangie 10 Year Old that sets the standard.
Quite simply, there’s an alluring delicacy and complexity to the whisky that seems almost impossible at this price point. Not surprisingly, this whisky has re-instated Glenmorangie’s reputation as one of the world’s most innovative and quality orientated distillers. Jim Murray is rapturous about the latest 10 Year Old bottling declaring it to be “ of the great single malts” rating the whisky 94 points.

Elegant swan necked stills ( said to be the tallest in Scotland) produce Glenmorangie whisky, which are claimed to contribute to the delicacy and lightness of the spirit. Maturation takes place in ex-bourbon casks, which are made from American oak which sourced from Glenmorangie's own section of forest in the Ozark Mountains in Missouri, before being matured in traditional stone warehouses.

Tasting note:
Brilliant straw/gold colour with water like hue. The aromas are delicate but complex. With some gentle persuasion a delightful combination of creme brulee, pineapple, pear drop, barley sugar, vanilla, cocoa and spice emerges. The palate is medium dry, rich, supremely soft and full of flavour. Vanilla custard, toffee, toasted coconut and cocoa are aided by a softly spiced, malty background. Hints of dried fruit emerge. Perfectly balanced. Soft, clean finish. Long aftertaste of vanilla, cocoa and toasted coconut. 40% Alc./Vol. 90 points
