What Is Glenmorangie Single Malt Whisky – The Story

If you are a single malt whisky lover, you would definitely agree that Glenmorangie is arguably the most delicious and complex single malt whisky in the world.

Its multi-layered aromas and kaleidoscopic flavours stimulate the senses and entice the palate.

As purveyors of perfection in single malt whisky, Glenmorangie takes pride in going to great lengths to ensure the quality of Glenmorangie whisky; to ascertain that Glenmorangie whisky is “Unnecessarily Well Made”.

How “Unnecessarily Well Made” is Glenmorangie?

Single malt whisky obtains its flavour from the wooden casks used in maturation. Many of Glenmorangie’s bespoke casks are made from white oaks grown on the Ozark Mountains in Missouri, USA.

They are grown slowly over 100 years and seasoned naturally in the open air for two years to preserve their porous texture – a quality that adds to the spirit’s intriguing depth.

*Glenmorangie casks are only ever used twice to ensure the optimal amount of flavour is extracted into the whisky*

While there are many perfectly good single malt whiskies made in shorter stills, the Glenmorangie Distillery utilizes swan-necked stills that are the tallest in Scotland!

*Stills in the Glenmorangie Distillery stand as tall as a fully grown giraffe*

Glenmorangie stills stand at a dizzying sixteen feet, ten and one quarter inches (5.14m) high.

This height means that only the lightest and purest vapours are able to ascend to the top and condense into spirit, contributing to Glenmorangie’s distinctive complexity and layered flavour.

This is definitely a plus point for the ever-growing whisky drinkers in Malaysia, especially single malt whisky. The Malaysian market of single malt whisky is expanding in recent years and Glenmorangie is definitely one of the top selections.

The superiority of the ingredients – local spring water from its own Tarlogie spring and locally grown Scottish barley, combined with the skill of the craftsmen who follow the same, time honoured approach that the company has used throughout its long history, result in a smooth spirit of distinction.

As an effort in the branding of Glenmorangie’s “Unnecessarily Well Made” here in Malaysia, be sure not to miss the opportunity to familiarize with all things ‘Unnecessarily Well Made’ this April.

On a related note, I myself had a bottle Glenmorangie – Sherry Wood Finish which I bought in Langkawi couple of years ago.

The Sherry Wood Finish has a slight sweet taste and it’s quite smooth to the palate. It’s definitely one of the best single malt whisky in the world.
