A limited edition single malt Scotch whisky, the Glenmorangie Grand Vintage Malt 1997 is a complex and flavorful dram. Initially aged in ex-bourbon casks for ten years, it was then transferred to Chateau Montrose red wine casks from Bordeaux for an additional thirteen years. Finally, it was married with whiskies matured solely in ex-bourbon casks and ex-oloroso sherry casks for a well-rounded profile.

Description

Aroma

Fruity and perfumed: The initial impression is a delightful mix of red fruits like strawberries and raspberries, along with hints of sweetness reminiscent of candy or pastries. Floral notes of rose, jasmine, and carnation add a touch of elegance.

Spicy undertones: With a splash of water, subtle hints of spice emerge, including sweet chili, clove, and ginger, adding a touch of intrigue.

Palate

Spicy introduction: A gentle tingle and a touch of spice greet your palate at first sip.

Sweet symphony: This quickly unfolds into a delightful symphony of flavors. Candied orange peel takes center stage, complemented by a medley of red berry fruits – think strawberries, raspberries, and perhaps a hint of currant. Juicy notes of pineapple, pear, and mandarin orange add a refreshing touch.

Richness and complexity: The sweetness is balanced by underlying notes of marzipan, candied apple, and a touch of oak spice, creating a rich and complex experience.

Finish

Lingering sweetness: The delightful flavors linger on the palate after each sip, leaving a lasting impression of sweetness and warmth.

Tasting Notes

Taste

Taste

A slightly tingly, gently spicy mouthfeel is followed by a symphony of sweet candy flavours, more soft red fruits, pineapple chunks and a taste reminiscent of pears and mandarin segments in fruit jelly. There are sweet ginger and chilli notes, gentle almond marzipan and vanilla toffee apple.

Aroma

Aroma

Astonishing, perfumed and fruity complexity. Floral notes of rose, jasmine and carnation intermingle with soft red fruits, mint toffee, pastry or cake mix and a sweet confectionery top note. With water, even more soft, floral top notes like roses and carnations emerge, with a very subtle spiciness like sweet chilli, clove and ginger.

FINISH

FINISH

Long and rich, with a final suggestion of sugared sweetness and the merest hint of spice.
