Introducing Glenmorangie Dornoch

Glenmorangie-Dornoch-whisky

Glenmorangie is proud to present its latest award winning limited edition expression, Glenmorangie Dornoch.

Inspired by the Distillery’s setting on the banks of the Dornoch Firth in the Scottish Highlands, Glenmorangie Dornoch took the Gold in The Spirits Business Travel retail awards and is being sold exclusively in travel retail outlets worldwide.

Dr Bill Lumsden, Director of Distilling and Whisky Creation, commented: “Glenmorangie Dornoch unites ex-bourbon American white oak barrels reflecting the distinctive vanilla and citrus Glenmorangie house style with a lightly peated Glenmorangie spirit that has been extra matured in ex-Amontillado sherry casks. The swirling under-current of peat adds an unexpected dimension of distant, smoky apples, complemented by vibrant, sweet nutty flavours layered upon the rich, warm toffee and dried fruits. These balance to create a single malt whisky that reflects the beautiful setting in which Glenmorangie is crafted.”

To protect the environmental importance of its provenance Glenmorangie has formed a partnership with the Marine Conservation Society. A donation from the sale of each bottle of Glenmorangie Dornoch will be made to the Marine Conservation Society to help sustain and protect this beautiful estuary beside the Distillery for future generations, as well as helping to protect Scottish and UK seas more widely.

Tasting Notes:

Aroma: A classic Glenmorangie spirit matured in ex-bourbon American white oak then transferred to ex-Amontillado casks.

Taste: The swirling of under-current of peat adds an unexpected dimension of sweet smoky apples, complemented by vibrant sweet nutty flavours layered upon the rich , warm toffee and dried fruits.

Finish: After tasting you are left with added layers of distinctive floral notes, the softness of vanilla with hints of citrus.
