Glenmorangie Cask 1784 Distillery Visitor Exclusive

31st May 2019
Glenmorangie release the first of four distillery visitor exclusive whiskies, the Glenmorangie Cask 1784, a 16 year old American bourbon matured whisky which has been finished for 6 years in a single first-fill Pedro Ximénez sherry butt, Cask 1784.

Glenmorangie has released the first of four limited edition whiskies which will be available exclusively to visitors to the distillery this year. The first whisky, Glenmorangie Cask 1784, is described as an unusually rich and intensely sweet Glenmorangie, it is a 16 year old single malt whisky which has first been matured for 10 years in American white oak bourbon casks and it has then been been finished for a further six years in a single first-fill Pedro Ximénez sherry butt, Cask 1784, from which it takes its name.

Non chill-filtered and bottled at cask strength – 55% ABV on 26 March 2019, Glenmorangie Cask 1784 is now available for visitors to purchase from the Glenmorangie distillery, you will certainly need deep pockets to get hold of a bottle of the 16 year old expression as it has a RRP of £650 and there are three further bottlings set to be released individually, later in 2019.

Dr Bill said: "We rarely release Distillery Exclusive whiskies like Cask 1784. Its years in a single Pedro Ximénez cask have resulted in classic sherry aromas of coffee, walnut cake and linseed oil, complemented by deep tastes of chocolate, dried fruits and spice. I hope this intensely sweet and surprisingly rich Glenmorangie will give visitors a particularly special reason to make the journey to our Distillery this summer, and discover our exceptional whisky creation."

If you don't have any plans to visit Glenmorangie this year don't worry you will find the current Glenmorangie core whisky range available from specialist online whisky retailers such as The Whisky Exchange, The Whisky Shop and Master of Malt

Glenmorangie Cask 1784 Review

Producer's Tasting Notes:

Nose: Classic sherry cask aromas, brimming with coffee and walnut cake, muscovado sugar and linseed oil. A few drops of water reveal a slight earthiness, more oily notes and a hint of grapes.

Taste: From mouth-coating, peppery textures comes the richness of brown sugar, raisins and dates alongside notes of walnut, cinnamon, ginger and nutmeg. Creamy fudge and toffee follow on, then an intense surge of old-fashioned boiled sweets, flavoured with aniseed and cinnamon.

Finish: Deep and rich, with hints of cocoa powder, chocolate truffles and subtle cigar smoke.
