The rarest, oldest and deepest single malt ever to emerge from our Distillery, Glenmorangie Pride 1974 is the very pinnacle of our Pride series, comprised of our most treasured creations. For 41 years, the whisky’s spirit was cherished as it lay quietly maturing in the finest ex-bourbon and ex-Oloroso sherry casks. Just as the two parcels reached their crescendo, they were married together in perfect harmony.
Their inspired union brings forth a whisky with intensely rich depths, which speak of its long maturation. Balanced by a smoothness and finesse, this is a single malt beyond comparison.
Aroma: Salted caramel toffee and chocolate truffles dance with Turkish delight, rum-and- raisin ice- cream and a hint of aged balsamic vinegar, for a nose wonderfully deep and rich. Add a splash of water to conjure warm brioche, yeast flour, ginger-snap biscuits and gentle blood orange, followed by baked bread and cedar wood.
Taste: A soft, gentle mouthfeel leads to the astonishing vibrancy of baked apples, oranges, honey and menthol. Then toffee comes forth, balanced by molasses, double cream, spicy clove and aniseed.
Finish: Pecan nuts and leather mingle with fudge and creamy caffè latte, for an aftertaste that is lingering and gently soothing.
