Glenmorangie’s vintage collection

The fourth release in Glenmorangie’s Bond House No.1 vintage collection brings together two very varied whiskies
Glenmorangie Grand Vintage Malt 1991 is the fourth release in the brand’s new collection, with a rich plum character. One was finished in oloroso sherry casks and the other in Burgundy casks.

In 1991, when this whisky’s spirit was distilled, the Distillery’s whisky creators were alive to the possibilities that a wood finish could bring.

Years later, Dr Bill Lumsden, Glenmorangie’s director of distilling, whisky creation & whisky stocks, was inspired to revisit some of these parcels of 1991’s whisky: “Bringing together two such incongruous whiskies goes somewhat against convention which, in part, is what drew me to the challenge of combining them. The result is a single malt with a rich plum character, deep, mellow aromas and tastes of ripe fruits and milk chocolate. Glenmorangie Grand Vintage Malt 1991 honours those early pioneers who dedicated themselves to the art of the wood finish in 1991, whose work still guides us today.”

Created with the collector in mind, Glenmorangie’s Bond House No. 1 series showcases some of the Distillery’s most scarce vintages.

Glenmorangie Grand Vintage Malt 1991 is available to purchase online at www.Clos19.com and from whisky specialists, RRP: £630.
