Aged for 26 years, Glenmorangie Grand Vintage Malt 1991 takes its rich plum character from two seemingly incongruous wood-finished whiskies. One sweet, spicy parcel finished in oloroso sherry casks is skilfully married with a bold, earthy parcel finished in burgundy casks. They are softened by a hint of whisky aged in new toasted oak, to create a whisky of implausible harmony.
Nose: Mellow, Deep, Intense and fruity. Lots of apricots, plum and baked apples, with chocolate, gentle oak and a hint of truffles and star anise. A splash of water releases deeper notes, reminiscent of hickory-smoked ham and a damp forest floor.
Taste: A slightly peppery mouthfeel leads to a burst of fruity flavours intermingled with lots of milk chocolate, stewed apples, plum and rip, red fruits such as cherry and raspberry.
Finish: A hint of zesty citrus and finally an intriguing combination of oak, fruit and sweet spices.
