Glenmorangie Finest Reserve 19 years old was introduced in the fall of 2017 exclusively for Global Travel Retail.
The men behind creation are Brendan McCarron, Glenmorangie’s Head of Maturing Whisky Stocks and Dr. Bill Lumsden, the company acclaimed Director of Distilling, Whisky Creation & Whisky Stocks. For this expression Brendan selected whisky, which was matured in slow-growth American white oak ex-bourbon barrels for almost two decades. Crafted from the finest casks in the distillery stock Finest Reserve celebrates the signature distillery style with deep complexity and rich citrusy notes. Glenmorangie is the fourth best selling single malt with 6.5 million bottles sold worldwide annually.
