DESCRIPTION

ACCOLADES

An exceptionally smooth and creamy expression. On the nose, fresh, clean and zesty aromas of mint, eucalyptus and hints of sugar cane, are woven with candy, peaches and vanilla. On the palate, smooth and creamy texture brings with it the subtle sweetness of apple, apricot and tangy oranges, alongside toffee, butter candy and menthol. To finish, mint toffee mingles with oak tannins and the lingering suggestion of bittersweet citrus fruit.

"With its vibrant citrus notes and intense creamy texture, Glenmorangie 19 Years Old celebrates our Distillery’s signature style. Showcasing the mastery and vision of our whisky creators, this delicate expression was carefully aged in only the finest American white oak ex-bourbon casks, before it was deemed to have reached its utmost balance of maturity and finesse. The resulting expression, so venerable, yet so vibrant, augments the soft and smooth character for which Glenmorangie is renowned, with a deep complexity and surprising zestiness." Glenmorangie

The Glenmorangie distillery was established in 1843, on the Dornoch Firth by brothers William and John Matheson. The site originally held a farm distillery under the name Morangie. There is evidence that distillation was carried out at this site during the early 18th century. Production began in November of 1849. During the latter part of the 19th century Glenmorangie began overseas exportation and destinations included Europe and the United States.

Such was the dependence on foreign trade that the distillery closed in 1931 following the enactment of US Prohibition and the Great Depression. The distillery remained closed until November of 1936. Macdonald and Muir Ltd, who purchased the company over the early part of the 19th century, put Glenmorangie Plc up for sale. Glenmorangie Plc included the distilleries Ardbeg, Glen Moray and Glenmorangie and, after frenzied bidding, the group was acquired by Louis Vuitton Moët Hennessey for £300 million.

To some extent, Glenmorangie were pioneers in the field of wood finishes. Delectable examples include the Sauternes-finished Nectar D'Or and the Côte De Beaune-finished twelve year-old. 2008 saw a rather unusual release; Glenmorangie's Signet. Signet is a single malt whisky distilled from chocolate malt and has a delightful flavour. The range is large and features a number of finished whiskies as well as the more traditional core expressions, like the cherished Glenmorangie 10.

In 2009, four more stills were added along with a larger mash tun and extra washbacks. Clearly that wasn’t enough, as in July 2018, construction began on a new stillhouse which will create space to house two more stills, as well as another building to house another two washbacks. It is due to be completed in 2019.
