Product Detail

Cask No. 0252 was singled out by Dr Bill Lumsden as it lay in the hushed depths of Warehouse 32. With an innovative finish in a rare burgundy cask, this single malt delivers unusual spice and finesse. The whisky’s floral, fruity spirit was distilled on Thursday 16th April 1998. And, under the watchful gaze of Dr Bill, then Glenmorangie’s passionate Distillery Manager, it was laid down in American oak bourbon casks for a careful maturation. Nine years later, having sourced Glenmorangie’s first casks from the Pommard appellation in Burgundy, Dr Bill filled a select few with this whisky. Fascinated to explore the impact of these singular red wine casks, he left Cask No. 0252 to age for another 13 years. Such a long finish might have brought burgundy’s savoury side to the whisky. But filled with fruit notes and elegant spice, Cask No. 0252 stands out from the rest.

TASTING NOTES

Appearance: Tanner leather

Aroma: The power of fresh leather and blackberries fills the nose. Then fruit cake emerges with clove, brown sugar, ripe plums and damsons.

Taste: Mouth-filling and fruity, with peach, nectarine and apricot. Chewy tannins and a surge of dark ginger chocolate bring notes of wood polish and black pepper, with lingering vanilla and spice at the finish.

PERFECT SERVE

Serve neat or on ice

ORIGIN

Highlands, Scotland. Glenmorangie single malt whisky has been produced at the Glenmorangie Distillery in the Scottish Highlands since 1843. Considered a pioneer in its field, the Scottish House has become famous for combining tradition and innovation to create the finest whiskies, described as “unnecessarily well made”. To achieve this quality, Glenmorangie Scotch whisky is produced with a unique distillation process that uses the tallest stills in Scotland. Expertly matured in only the finest oak casks, the resulting single malt is testament to the savoir-faire that has been passed down from generation to generation by a team of expert craftsmen known as the “Men of Tain”.
