Unusually for Scotland, the water supply for Glenmorangie is very rich in minerals and this may account for the whisky’s flavour, but then some will argue that the shape of the stills has more influence on flavour. This may indeed be true as the stills at Glemorangie are among the tallest in Scotland and it is claimed that tall stills only allow the lightest spirits to pass.
Glenmorangie is also an interesting distillery to visit because the whisky is offered in a very wide range of finishes. You may chose from whisky that has been “finished” in a variety of casks e.g. Fino Sherry, Ruby Port, Dry Oloroso, Malmsey Madiera, Claret and even Cote de Beaune red wine. We would recommend the Port Wood finish as the one to go for!
If further recommendation is required, then you may like to know that Glenmorangie is the best selling malt in Scotland.
