Glenmorangie Grand Vintage 1991 Highland Single Malt Scotch Whisky 700ml (Scotland)
Awarded Whisky of the Year at the 2019 International Whisky Competition.
The highest scoring whisky at the 2019 International Spirits Competition, Glenmorangie’s luxury 1991 bottling has taken out the top prize as Whisky of the Year. Rated 97 points, we have secured the last Australian stocks. Aside from the stunning presentation and unanimous praise, this super-aged Highland gem is priced well under the going rate for the same whisky in the UK. If you are a collector and/or investor, our recommendation is a strong ‘buy now’.
Two profoundly different whiskies married in implausible harmony, create the rich, plum taste of Glenmorangie Grand Vintage Malt 1991. Aged for 26 years, the fourth release in our exclusive Bond House No. 1 Collection owes its fruity depths to two rare parcels of 1991 whisky which, ordinarily, would never be brought together. Long matured in bourbon casks, each was then finished for more than a decade – one in oloroso sherry casks for sweetness and spice, the other in burgundy casks for earthy and truffle notes. At first, their characters seem utterly incongruous. Yet, skilfully softened with a hint of whisky aged in new toasted oak, those contrasts unite in a limited-edition single malt whisky astonishingly mellow and deep.
Aroma: Deep and mellow, laden with apricots, plum and baked apples. Then comes chocolate, with a gentle hint of oak, alongside truffles and star anise.
Taste: Peppery on the palate, before a burst of fruit with stewed apples, plum, ripe cherries and raspberries, swathed in milk chocolate.
Finish: A hint of Glenmorangie’s signature citrus notes, followed by waves of oak, fruit and sweet spices.
