Glenmorangie Grand Vintage Malt 1990, 43%

Price: $615 Issue: Spring 2017 Reviewer: Gavin Smith

The first release in Glenmorangie's new Vintage Collection, named Bond House No.1 after the 19th century warehouse that became the distillery's new stillhouse in 1990. Matured in a mix of bourbon and sherry casks. Mandarins, honey, and vanilla on the floral nose. Very smooth on the palate, with malt, vanilla, more honey, and milk chocolate orange. Attractive soft oak notes and gentle herbal spice in the medium to long finish.
