Glenmorangie Grand Vintage Malt 1996, 43%

Price: $825 Issue: Fall 2020 Reviewer: Gavin Smith

The latest addition to Glenmorangie's Bond House No. 1 collection is 23 years old. The nose is sweet and inviting, with honey, ginger, vanilla fudge, milk chocolate, and nectarines. Very smooth on the palate: peaches in cream, more milk chocolate, caramel, then spicy apricots. Long in the finish, with orange rind and a hint of chile.
