Second single malt in the Pride series. The whisky was matured in ex-Bourbon barrels for 18 years before being transferred into French Oak wine barriques from an undisclosed vineyard in the Pouillac region of Bordeaux for the final 14 years of maturation, making it not only the oldest Glenmorangie ever released at 32 years, but also the longest to have been “finished” in a wine cask.
“It’s actually more delicate in character and has taken on less of the French Oak in spite of being in the French Oak barriques for longer (than the Pride 1981),” said Glenmorangie Director of Whisky Creation Dr. Bill Lumsden in an interview with WhiskyCast’s Mark Gillespie. “The wine barriques may have been used twice, which is often the case with these top chateaus. The tannins are very soft, they’re very nicely integrated into the whisky, and there’s a lot of characteristic Glenmorangie flavors in there.” He later confirmed that the barriques were used twice before being filled with the whisky.
