Glenmorangie Pride 1981
Glenmorangie // Highland, Scotland
A limited edition vintage release from the Glenmorangie distillery, this Highland single malt was distilled in October 1981 and left to age in select oak casks. The intention was to bottle the whisky in 1999, but Dr Bill Lumsden got his hands on some rare casks from the famed Château d'Yquem vineyard in France. Thus, the 18 year old became a 28 year old after a secondary maturation in Sauternes barriques. Only 1,000 decanters were ever released and bottled at 56.7% ABV.
Single MaltDistilled in pot stills from 100% malted barley, produced at one distillery, aged in barrels; if Scotch or Irish, must be aged for at least three years.
