Glenmorangie 18-Year Extremely Rare Single Malt Scotch has maintained its reputation for vibrancy and richness. The whisky is matured for 15 years in American white oak casks. Approximately 30 percent of the spirit is transferred to Oloroso sherry casks to mature in them for another three years. After aging for 18 years, the two elements are blended to create Glenmorangie Scotch with this age and distinction.
The masterful aging and blended processes create a full, rounded profile influenced by the nuttiness of the oak casks balanced by the raisiny sweetness of the sherry casks. It gives off a sweet aroma of dried fruits and florals with a rich bouquet. The flavor profile is balanced, featuring honey, malt and florals. Also note hints of dates, figs and wood smoke. Enjoy the long sweet finish with subtle dryness in the Glenmorangie 18. Review our selection to see the savings you can find on premium single malt Scotch.

The 18 Years Old is a single malt Scotch whisky of serious distinction. Once it has spent fifteen years maturing in American white oak casks approximately 30% is transferred into Spanish Oloroso casks to spend a further three years maturing. Then, when both elements have reached 18 years, we blend them back together to create a whisky with a rich bouquet and full, rounded flavour.For a whisky of this age this expression has maintained, thanks to our delicate floral spirit and fine Oloroso casks, an incredible degree of vibrancy where the raisiny sweetness of the sherry has been toned down by the nuttiness of the American oak.
