This rich and luxurious twelve year old single malt is matured in American oak casks and finished in Burgundy Barriques from the Cote D' Or. This adds complimentary characteristics to Glemorangie ' s hallmark taste.
According to Malt Advocate - 89 Pts - Finished (extra-matured, as they are now saying) in Sauternes casks. This expression replaces the Madeira wood finish. Beautiful sweet notes of honeycomb, sultana, apple pie, and white chocolate balanced by peach, coconut, and pineapple. Gentle background spice. The Sauternes cask adds extra weight and viscosity. The sweetness is not cloying, nor does it dominate the flavor profile. A good demonstration of the benefits of wood finishing.
