Glenmorangie 1963
scotch whisky

Glenmorangie, 23 Year Old (distilled 1963)

RRP £2,250

These days, Glenmorangie is known for being fruit and vanilla led, with the Glenmorangie Original a perfect example. However, in the 1960s, when direct-fired stills were used, it had more industrial aromas. Cordite and gun oil are present in this 1963 expression; it is very fragrant. The fruit flavours come through with baked-apple skin, redcurrant jelly and concentrated orange juice. Smoke holds the dram together, with subtle but distinct rose flavours at the end.
