The Grand Vintage Malt 1997 spent the first decade of its 23-year-old development aging in bourbon casks to bring out citrus notes imparted thanks to the Highland distillery's giraffe-high stills—extra space allows for more taste and aroma, according to Glenmorangie.
Color: Deep Ochre
Aroma: Astonishing, perfumed and fruity complexity. Floral notes of rose, jasmine and carnation intermingle with soft red fruits, mint toffee, pastry or cake mix and a sweet confectionery top note. With water, even more soft, floral top notes like roses and carnations emerge, with a very subtle spiciness like sweet chilli, clove and ginger.
Taste: A slightly tingly, gently spicy mouthfeel is followed by a symphony of sweet candy flavors, more soft red fruits, pineapple chunks and a taste reminiscent of pears and mandarin segments in fruit jelly. There are sweet ginger and chili notes, gentle almond marzipan and vanilla toffee apple.
Finish: Sweet, rich, long and gently spicy.
