This is the Luxury end of the Glenmorangie Range.
The first release from Glenmorangie's Bond House No.1 Collection
The Glenmorangie 1990 is a 25 year old Single Malt distilled in 1990 and bottled 2016.
Carefully nurtured for a quarter-century in the finest ex-bourbon and ex-sherry casks, this sublime whisky exhibits an extraordinary mellow, rounded character with heady floral and fruity notes.
Aroma: A cornucopia of floral and fruity notes. Pear, honeysuckle and freesia mingle with orange blossom, candied fruits, mandarin, apple, heather honey and a distinctive note of beeswax.
Taste: A silky, creamy mouthfeel brings with it the succulent sweetness of orange syrup, honeycomb and vanilla. Then come zesty top notes of gooseberry and menthol.
Finish: Baked apples and pears abound, leading to brown sugar, biscuit and the gentlest hint of clove.
In his Whisky Bible 2017, Jim Murray gave this a massive 94 points and a Liquid Gold Award.
