The oldest member of Glenmorangie's "Extra-Matured" range, The Quarter Century showcases the highly-respected wood program under Bill Lumsden's stewardship at the Glenmorangie Distillery. The whisky is a blend of single malts that have spent twenty-five years in a combination of ex-bourbon barrels sourced from the American Ozarks, ex-red wine casks from Burgundy, France, and ex-Oloroso sherry Spanish oak.

Tasting Notes

"Starting sweet, the nose quickly turns to myriad of fruit--apples and pear slices dipped in lemon juice, stone fruits (particularly plums), and cherries. Thoughts of thick oak doors, polished brass trimming the edges, leads to a garden of freshly-mown grass. The palate is oily and thickens considerably, bringing back all the fruits in the form of a Christmas cake seated next to dark chocolate. The finish is lengthy and brings with it ginger and nutmeg.
