Glenmorangie Pride 1981


A single malt whisky beyond comparison, Glenmorangie Pride 1981 is the culmination of 28 years of passion, patience and artistry. As its name implies, the birth date was 1981 – in the month of October - when the original liquid was distilled and laid down for maturation in Glenmorangie’s finest oak casks. The intention had always been to create an exquisite vintage 18-Year-Old, yet in 1999, Dr Bill Lumsden acquired the key to crafting an even more outstanding whisky: a limited quantity of Sauternes barriques from the fabled vineyards of Chateau d’Yquem. Thus the whisky was extra-matured for 10 more years in those prized casks - the longest period any Glenmorangie whisky has ever undergone extra-maturation.
