Signature Malt

The signature malt of the Glenmorangie whisky distillery has to be the Glenmorangie 10 year old. It is a whisky that has a certain complex taste that works very well. Spices mixed with a distinct oak taste swirl around the malt and makes it a very delightful drinking experience.

The Distillery

The Glenmorangie whisky distillery is located in Tain, Ross-shire and Glenmorangie whisky is thus classed as part of the Highlands region. Glenmorangie is a name that is well known throughout the whisky world and its reputation is very much deserved. However, although it is a giant of the whisky world, there are a lot of people who take the quality for granted and this does the Glenmorangie distillery a great disservice. The Glenmorangie spares no expense in finding the finest oak with which to create their whisky in. Even the water they use is of the highest quality; the spring only releases water that has spent a few hundred years permeating through rock!

The Glenmorangie distillery is well worth a visit, although it is quite a fair trek to such a Northernly place. The coastline on which the distillery stands is rugged with strong bracing breezes that would leave any visitor feeling ‘healthy’, and that is before any tasting of whisky has taken place. The Glenmorangie whisky distillery offers free tours of its distillery and has a visitor centre and a museum. Even better, a tour allows you a discount off some of their more expensive bottles.

On the subject of a Glenmorangie whisky that tends to be on the expensive side, special mention should go to a limited edition whisky produced by the Glenmorangie distillery called the Glenmorangie Margaux Cask Finish Vintage 1987. If you ever get the chance to purchase a bottle of this perfect whisky, do so. You won’t be disappointed!
