This sublime Sauternes Wood Finish is the first ever Glenmorangie to have been finished in white wine casks. The gradual aging and maturation over 20 years included an exceptionally long period of finishing for 2 years in casks which previously held Premier Grand Cru Sauternes. 

Tasting Notes:

Colour: Bright golden syrup.

Nose: Luscious and soft with an intriguing dessert-like sweetness. At full strength, rich toffee, golden syrup and ripe fruits (pears and peaches) are discovered, followed by Christmas cake. Later, the freshness of mint chocolate chip ice-cream emerges through the sweetness.

Taste: The taste is smooth, sweet and gently oily and is reminscent of lemon meringue pie and vanilla ice-cream melting on the tongue.

The sweetness of honeycumb and vanilla is present throughout the taste. Hints of chocolate, nuts and raisins make an appearance in the middle then fade away to leave vanilla and lemon meringue. Wild mint and hazelnuts make a brief appearance before the sweetness returns to centre stage.

Finish: Long and sweet with an unsurpassed creamy vanilla character and a gentle taste of coconut.
