Glenmorangie Pride 1974
70cl / 52% abv
Distilled on 30th October 1974, this Highland Single Malt is the oldest ever released by Glenmorangie to date. Laid down in two parcels, one in bourbon refill casks and another in Spanish Oloroso sherry casks, the spirit matured for 41 years before being filled to just 503 crystal decanters, crafted by celebrated glassware designer Laurence Brabant.
Nose: sweet salted caramel and chocolate truffles mingle with Turkish delight and a touch of balsamic vinegar.
Palate: soft and gentle before a burst of baked apples, oranges, honey, toffee and molasses with double cream, cloves and aniseed giving balance.
Finish: long and lingering with soothing pecan, leather and fudge aspects.
