Glenmorangie Pride 1981

The culmination of 28 years of passion, patience and artistry, Pride 1981 is the most luxurious and longest ever extra-matured Glenmorangie. When the original whisky was distilled in 1981, it was selected to mature in the finest oak casks with the intention of creating an exquisite 18 Year Old whisky. However, in 1999, Dr. Bill Lumsden, Master Distiller, acquired an extremely limited number of Sauternes barriques from the Chateau d'Yquem vineyard. He saw the perfect opportunity to create an even more outstanding single malt scotch whisky: the ultimate expression of the art of extra maturation. Glenmorangie Pride 1981 is 28 year old whisky that is matured in the finest oak casks for 18 years before being aged exclusively in Chateau d'Yquem Sauternes casks for a further ten years - the longest period any current Glenmorangie whisky has undergone extra maturation. It is then bottled at cask strength (56.7% ABV) The whisky comes in an exquisite Baccarat crystal decanter designed by renowned glassware artist Laurence Brabant. Each decanter is individually numbered and personally signed by Dr. Bill Lumsden, and is housed inside an elegantly-crafted wooden coffret designed by emerging Dutch designer Wouter Scheublin. TASTING NOTES COLOR: Intense, deepest gold AROMA: Apple tart with sprinklings of demerara sugar, nutmeg and aniseed are underpinned by musky oak tones. The addition of water releases a myriad of exotic fruits and spices TASTE: Intense layers of delicious desserts: syrup sponge pudding covered in milk chocolate sauce, honeydew melon and lemon vanilla burst on the palate. A strong backbone of oak tannins is present, bringing hints of French toast and steely mineral notes FINISH: Long, succulent and sweet with sultanas, toasted almonds and the lingering memory of lemon and coconut desserts
