A duty free edition that references the earlier Ealanta (both being 19 year olds matured exclusively in American oak barrels). Chosen in part by Brendan McCarron, Glenmorangie’s Head of Maturing Whisky Stocks, the resulting whisky showcases the soft, smooth character for which Glenmorangie is renowned while preserving a surprising liveliness. “Often, a longer maturation will tone down a spirit’s more perfumed notes,” said McCarron, “But this retains a wonderful vibrancy and zest.”
If you're a 'Morangie fan, you need to try this. In Jim Murray's words, it's "fresh, subtle and sophisticated" (94 points). It's also a once-off shipment. If you can afford more than one, limited editions from this distillery have a tendency to accrue value. (The last Ealanta we sold went for $700). Get it at the opening price while you can.
