    Dr. Bill's curiosity led him to explore the potential of new charred oak barrels in enhancing Glenmorangie's delicate, fruity spirit. He handpicked a selection of bespoke casks, meticulously crafted to enrich the distillery's single malt. By subjecting these virgin wood casks to charring for the first time, he aimed to create a distinct style of single malt characterized by intense color and spiciness.

    The majority of these early casks were allocated to the wood-finishing process, where their spiciness harmonized with Glenmorangie's intricate fruity notes. However, displaying the vision of a true innovator, he filled a small number of these casks with new-make spirit, envisioning the creation of an extraordinary single malt.

    These experimental new char casks were left to mature in a cool, earth-floored warehouse for over two decades. During this extended aging period, the spirit within underwent a delightful transformation, evolving into a lusciously buttery whisky imbued with flavors of vanilla, chocolate infused with hints of orange, nuances of ginger, and a touch of sweet chili.

    Dr. Bill was exhilarated by the spicy depths achieved in this groundbreaking experiment. Contemplating how to complement the whisky's unique flavor profile, he embarked on a journey to harmonize Glenmorangie's delicacy with the robust, toasty qualities of the whisky. Initially, he layered the oaky nuances with the soft, fruity character of Glenmorangie matured in first-fill bourbon casks. Subsequently, he introduced sweet subtlety by incorporating a portion of whisky finished in oloroso sherry casks.

    After a patient aging period of 23 years, the resulting creation radiates with ripe fruits, rich orange chocolate, and subtle undertones of sugared almonds and spice. Exceptionally dynamic and vibrant, Glenmorangie Grand Vintage Malt 1998 elevates the distillery's renowned elegance with a splendid and spicy brilliance.

    Tasting Note by Glenmorangie:
    Nose: Rich and mellow, with hints of toffee, ripe fruits such as pears, plums and baked apples, and some gentle oak. This is followed by some sweet vanilla, fragrant spearmint and a mellow, warming, waxy note, like fragrant incense. Some water releases Glenmorangie’s classic citrus notes of lemon and mandarin orange along with sweet tobacco, a touch of lavender, and the merest hint of ginger.
    Palate: A zesty, almost effervescent mouthfeel leads into a burst of vibrant fruitiness, some chocolatey notes, a soft butter candy flavour and a hint of toffee, juicy raisins and figs. Then comes a suggestion of orange-flavoured chocolate, clove, ginger and aniseed.
    Finish: Gentle and soothing with hints of sugared almonds, leather and dates.

    Glenmorangie Distillery: Pursuit of Perfection in the Highlands

    Glenmorangie Distillery, nestled on the tranquil shores of the Dornoch Firth in the Scottish Highlands, is celebrated for its relentless pursuit of perfection in single malt Scotch whisky. Founded in 1843, the distillery is known for its tall copper pot stills, which are the tallest in Scotland, allowing for a purer and more refined spirit. Glenmorangie whiskies are renowned for their smooth and elegant character, with a delicate balance of floral, fruity, and creamy notes. The distillery takes pride in its dedication to quality, using only the finest hand-selected oak casks for maturation. Glenmorangie's commitment to innovation is evident in its pioneering use of different cask finishes, resulting in a diverse range of expressions that continue to captivate whisky connoisseurs worldwide.

    The Unique Tall Stills of Glenmorangie Distillery

    What sets Glenmorangie Distillery apart and makes it truly unique is its tall copper pot stills, known as the "Glenmorangie Eight." These stills stand at an impressive height of 5.14 meters (over 16 feet), making them the tallest in Scotland. The height of the stills allows for a longer distillation process, resulting in a lighter and purer spirit. The tall stills enable only the finest vapors to rise to the top, leaving impurities behind, and capturing the delicate floral and fruity characteristics of the malted barley. This slow and precise distillation contributes to the smooth and refined nature of Glenmorangie whiskies. Additionally, the distillery's commitment to using only the finest oak casks for aging ensures that the spirit develops harmoniously, showcasing a complexity of flavors. Glenmorangie's unique combination of tall stills and innovative cask finishes has cemented its reputation as a Highland gem, delivering whiskies of unparalleled quality and depth.
