Glenmorangie 18 Years Old "Extremely Rare"

Glenmorangie 18 Years Old Extremely Rare, one of GAYOT's Top 10 Single Malt Scotch picks, spends 15 years in Bourbon oak barrels and its remaining three years in Oloroso Sherry casks

Glenmorangie 18 Years Old "Extremely Rare"
The Highlands

The Glenmorangie 18 Years Old spends 15 years of its life in classic Bourbon oak barrels. A portion is then transferred to Oloroso sherry barrels for the final three years of maturation. These barrels are then reunited to create this silky Scotch, tasting of nuts, dried sticky figs, dates and vanilla. These flavors meld together on the palate in perfect harmony, leaving a nice creamy finish with a hint of fruit, floral, almonds and vanilla.

Price: $100
