This Glenmorangie Spios (Scots Gaelic for 'spice') is the 9th Edition in the Private Edition Collection. This expression was matured in American ex-rye casks giving what the distillery describe as 'a uniquely full-bodied and distinctively savoury single malt whisky. Entirely matured in casks that once contained American Rye whiskey, this innovative creation rekindles the bygone elegance of the golden whiskey era with its sophisticated and subtle spice.'
|Distillery: First entices with its fresh and herbal nose, hinting at cherry, clove and mint toffee, followed by scents of green grass. A splash of water releases more perfumed notes, both crisp and clean - and an inviting complexity of herbal tones.|
|Distillery: Then, rye's characteristic spice bursts forth, as tastes of toffee, clove and cinnamon mingle with nutmeg and sweet, buttery vanilla.|
|Distillery: The finish is rich, sweet and lingering, with toffee and Brazil nut emerging alongside citrus tang. A pioneering single malt Scotch whisky for the most discerning connoisseur, in Glenmorangie Spios, an old-time elegance is born.|
