Multiple layers of sweetness.
Glenmorangie Milsean is the latest child of the distillery, which recently had its premiere in Poland. The presentation was conducted by Global Brand Ambassador of Glenmorangie Karen Fullerton. Karen is a very nice person, with a passion telling about whisky. During the event we tried currently available range of Glenmoragie (eg: Glenmorangie 10 years old Original, Glenmorangie Quinta Ruban, Glenmorangie Lasanta, Glenmorangie Nectar D’Or and Glenmorangie Signet) in combination with snacks. Everything was very well organized and composed. The highlight was Glenmorangie Milsean. In this case we have NAS (no age statement), fortunateley non chill filtered. Maturation proceeded in bourbon casks and for the final period the distillate was poured to the toasted ex-red wine Portuguese casks. Single malt was bottled with the right power of 46% ABV.
