Whisky Advocate #13 Whiskey of 2020
"Glenmorangie has been growing its own barley for years, but this U.S. exclusive marks the first release produced entirely from its estate-grown grain. Honeysuckle and jasmine waft over lemon curd and shortbread on the nose, while bright aromas of blueberry and lime stand out. The palate is malty and full: shortbread with tumbling fresh blueberries, toasted almonds, and gingery spice. Its silky, rounded, and seamless into the finish, and beautifully transformed by a drop of water. Susannah Skiver Barton
Glenmorangie The Cadboll Estate is a spirit crafted from our own Cadboll Estate barley, grown in the fields surrounding our Highland home, and distilled in Scotlands tallest stills. It is aged in hand-selected, first-fill American White Oak ex-Bourbon casks to create a single-estate whisky of oaky depths and rounded smoothness. This limited edition brings a unique creaminess and sweet, oaky depths to Glenmorangies signature, smooth style.
AromaOaky intensity, biscuit and orange oil, softened with honeycomb, jasmine and rose.
TasteCreamy butter candy, white chocolate, pears and mandarin are balanced by menthol.
FinishRounded and deeply sweet.

We've always realised that pursuing perfection is rather a long journey. We just know it's a trip worth making.
The Tallest Stills
Our stills are the tallest in Scotland. Their long copper necks stand at 5.14 metres (16ft 10 1/4 inches), the same height as a fully grown adult giraffe! Which means that only the very lightest and purest vapours make it to the top, giving a smoother, more elegant whisky.
