Glenmorangie Spios 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.

Spios was the ninth release from Glenmorangie Private Edition range and the first single malt to have ever been entirely matured in American rye whiskey casks. The name Spios, is Scots Gaelic for 'spice'. This edition has been released in 2018.

    Nose:    Soft and mild, vanilla and herbal spices in the background, delicate cherry fruitiness.
