Crafted by Glenmorangie from field to glass, this limited-edition series brings the spirit and flavour of our Highland home to whisky lovers around the globe. Aged for 15 years, the third batch of Glenmorangie The Cadboll Estate brings a nutty and spicy twist to the series’ award-winning flavour.
Each release in the series begins in our Distillery’s own barley fields located on the Cadboll Estate, planted and harvested to Dr Bill’s specifications. This Cadboll barley is then mashed and distilled in our towering copper stills (as tall as an adult giraffe to allow for a more elegant taste and aroma), to bring forth a uniquely delicious spirit.
With notes of nuts and sweet spice in mind, Dr Bill selected spirit created from two separate barley harvests and aged it in American oak bourbon casks to enhance those creamy depths. Then, picturing notes of hazelnut, toffee and clove, he finished a small portion in casks which once held Amontillado, his favourite style of sherry. After 15 years, Dr Bill reunited these whiskies in this series’ delicious third batch release; threading hints of toffee and spice around honeysuckle, peaches and cream.
Wonderfully aromatic and fragrant, with touches of honey, hazelnuts, mandarin oranges and soft, sweet toffee. This is then followed by top notes of sweet ripening barley, followed by baked peaches. A splash of water releases some flinty minerality, along with honeysuckle and jasmine flowers.
A gently spicy mouthfeel leads into a burst of sweet and spicy flavours –heather honey, gingerbread, hazelnut praline, fudge, toffee and a touch of clove. The Amontillado cask derived nuttiness is always present, but always gently integrated into the other, sweeter flavours. The lingering aftertaste has touches of almond marzipan and coconut, and finally a suggestion of baking fruit loaves.
Gloriously creamy and spicy, with notes of gingerbread, hazelnuts and toffee.
