Glenmorangie Highland Single Malt Scotch Whisky Grand Vintage Malt 1997 - Seventh in the Bond House No. 1 Collection – a selection of the distillery's most prized parcels specifically chosen for ageing in unique barrels – Grand Vintage Malt 1997 is Glenmorangie's first to be aged in rare Bordeaux wine casks.
Inviting a greater synergy between whisky and wine, this vintage is uniquely finished in casks from the prestigious Château Montrose estate in Saint-Estèphe, Bordeaux. Aged for 23 years, it offers a lively and floral expression of Glenmorangie.
Colour: deep ocher On the nose: An amazing, fruity-perfumed complexity.
Nose: Floral notes of roses, jasmine and cloves mix with aromas of red berries, mint toffee, pastries or cakes and top notes of sweets. With a little water, more mild, floral notes of roses and cloves emerge, with a subtle spiciness of sweet chilli, cloves and ginger.
Palate: slightly tingling, gently spicy taste is followed by a symphony of sweet candy flavours, red berry fruits with pineapple and pear and mandarin wedges in fruit jelly. With sweet notes of ginger and chilli, fine marzipan and candied apples.
Finish: sweet, rich, long and delicately spicy.
