Glenmorangie have kicked off their Bond House No.1 series of vintage expressions with an absolutely stonking 1990 vintage single malt! This terrific tipple was distilled right when everyone realised that the year 2000 might actually happen, and left to age in a combination of ex-bourbon and ex-Sherry casks for quarter of a century before being bottled at 43% ABV. The distillers in the Highlands figured that a whisky as smashing as this needed a rather handsome bottle too, which is always a treat.
In his Whisky Bible 2017, Jim Murray gave this a massive 94 points (earning a Liquid Gold Award), and also took home a Double Gold Medal at the San Francisco World Spirits Competition 2017!
Nose: The aroma is a veritable cornucopia of heady floral and fruity notes; heather honey, honeysuckle and freesia mingle with orange blossom, candied fruits, mandarin, pear and apple. This complex bouquet is supplemented by a distinctive note of beeswax.
Palate: The mouthfeel is silky, creamy and mouth coating, delightfully mellow and gentle. This leads into succulent, sweet flavours of orange syrup, puff candy, honeycomb, vanilla, and some zesty, herbal top notes of gooseberry and menthol.
Finish: The fruitiness continues with baked apples and pears, then there are some deeper notes of brown-sugar, malty/biscuit flavours and the gentlest hint of clove and oak tannin on the finish.
