Glenmorangie Milsean Private Edition Single Malt Whisky

Crafting single malt whisky since 1843, when farmer William Matheson and his wife Anne followed their dreams and founded the Glenmorangie Distillery. Despite being owned by blenders, MacDonald & Muir, for most of the 20th century, Glenmorangie had an early focus on bottling its single malt. This became the distillery's main output in 1959, and with the unique flavours derived from Scotland's smallest stills, coupled with their pioneering use of wood finishing, Glenmorangie is now one of the world's biggest selling malts. As a result, the distillery portfolio over the years has been extensive, and little has been spared for independent bottlers.

Released in 2016, Milsean was the seventh release from Glenmorangie Private Edition range. From Scots Gaelic meaning 'sweet things', Milsean is a dessert flavoured Glenmorangie matured in ex-bourbon casks then matured further in flamed-toasted casks which previously held Portuguese wine.
