The “Unnecessarily Well Made” Glenmorangie
After the long hour working day or during the rainy day, I love taking a sip or two on my favourite single malt whisky from the crystal whisky glass, relaxing my soul along the jazzy music …
“Unnecessarily Well Made” Glenmorangie – the complex single malt whisky; layered with multi layers of flavours that stimulate the senses and tempt the palate.
This single malt whisky obtains its flavour from the wooden casks used in maturation. Many of Glenmorangie’s bespoke casks are made from white oaks grown on the Ozark Mountains in Missouri, USA. They are grown slowly over 100 years and seasoned naturally in the open air for two years to preserve their porous texture. These casks are only used twice in order to ensure the optimal amount of flavour is extracted into the whisky.
While there are many perfectly good single malt whiskies made in shorter stills, the Glenmorangie Distillery utilizes swan-necked stills that are the tallest in Scotland. Glenmorangie stills stand at a dizzying sixteen feet, ten and one quarter inches (5.14m) high.
The superiority of the ingredients – local spring water from its own Tarlogie spring and locally grown
Scottish barley, combined with the skill of the craftsmen who follow the same, time honoured approach that the company has used throughout its long history, result in a smooth spirit of distinction.
And not long ago, I had an opportunity to experience the “Unnecessarily Well Made” Glenmorangie here in Malaysia. Allow me to share my experience with you in the coming up post….
