Glenmorangie The Cadboll Estate 15 Year Old Batch 4


23rd May 2024
Glenmorangie has released the fourth batch of its Cadboll 15 Year Old single estate whisky and they say that its creamy style has reached new heights.

Glenmorangie The Cadboll Estate 15 Year Old Batch 4Astonishingly rich and silky is how Glenmorangie describe the latest batch of Glenmorangie The Cadboll Estate 15 Year Old single malt whisky which they say takes the single-estate whisky’s creamy character to new heights of deliciousness.

This whisky is crafted from barley grown exclusively in eight fields on Glenmorangie’s own estate, near the distillery. The grain-to-glass series captures the spirit and flavour of the Highland single malt Scotch whisky’s homeland for whisky enthusiasts everywhere. Aged for 15 years in specially designed bourbon casks to enhance its renowned creaminess, this fourth batch limited release is said to be silky, rich, and rounded, with notes of fruit and honey.

Glenmorangie’s Cadboll Estate is located just moments from the distillery on the fertile Easter Ross Peninsula, between the Moray and Dornoch Firths. This secluded area, with its expansive skies, endless barley fields, and beautiful beaches, is sparsely populated and rarely visited. Inspired to share the essence of Glenmorangie with fans worldwide, the whisky creators crafted a whisky from field to glass, giving birth to the Cadboll Estate series. Each release starts with barley grown in only 26 hectares—eight fields—on the estate. Planted and harvested precisely to the distillery's specifications, this small plot produces a spirit rich in creaminess.

To celebrate the Cadboll harvest of 2007, Glenmorangie’s whisky creators matured the precious spirit in their renowned designer casks. These casks, hand-hewn from select American white oaks, are air-dried and seasoned with bourbon to exacting specifications, custom-made to bring out the best in Glenmorangie’s soft spirit. After aging for 15 years, the fourth batch release of Glenmorangie The Cadboll Estate is said to be uniquely full and silky, enriched with notes of honeycomb, apricots, and pears.

Glenmorangie's Director of Whisky Creation, Dr Bill Lumsden, said: "Grown in just eight fields near the Glenmorangie Distillery, Cadboll barley brings our spirit even more creaminess. To accentuate its incredible softness, we aged the fourth batch release of Glenmorangie The Cadboll Estate in our renowned designer casks. Bespoke from field to glass, this 15-year-old single-estate whisky is alive with rich, silky flavours. Honeyed aromas of apricots and pears, and tastes of butter candy, orange and melon gives whisky lovers a delicious taste of our Highland homeland, wherever in the world they happen to be."

Glenmorangie The Cadboll Estate 15 Year Old Batch 4 Review


Bottled at 43% ABV.

Producer's Tasting Notes:

Nose: Beautifully aromatic, honeyed and sweet, with tastes of almond, marzipan, honeycomb, melon and pear. Vanilla crème anglaise is present, along with a touch of mint. With a small splash of water, some classic floral notes emerge, with jasmine, lavender and rose, along with a fresh burst of mandarin orange and apricot.

Taste: The texture is smooth and creamy, and is immediately followed by an explosion of complex, colourful flavours: zesty lemon and mandarin orange, menthol and eucalyptus, vanilla and honeycomb, ripe pear and melon. Sweet spices tempered by butter candy.

Finish: Full and rich, but gentle and soothing at the same time, rounded off by a lingering mentholic note.
