A beautifully historic Glenmorangie. This stunning bottle was distilled in 1975 and matured for 19 Years. The whisky is an early example of what would become one of the distillery’s defining characteristics – the use of wine barrels to ‘finish’ the whisky’s maturation.
This bottle represents a piece of whisky history.
Featuring the old style labelling and complete with original presentation box – this is a must for Glenmorangie collectors.

Glenmorangie Port Wood Finish is the colour of antique copper: golden but with a rosy hue.
With a drop of water, they key aromas are of butterscotch and dark chocolate, but with fresh, minty notes and a trace of dryness, like lint.
There is some sandalwood here, and citric fruit-oranges, perhaps tangerine, even a hint of allspice. With a little more water, lighter scents begin to emerge: grass and hay, hazelnuts and candied peel.
The mouth-feel is voluptuously smooth, like sipping velvet. The entire palate is engaged – a most interesting and complex balance of sweet and dry flavours. The bitter chocolate noted as an aroma is apparent, and the fresh minty-ness.
In the satisfying, lingering finish a hint of port reveals itself for the first time, this and walnuts.
A remarkable whisky, perfect after a good meal or to savour at any time.
