Glenmorangie 1991 Grand Vintage / Bond House No.1 Collection
Despite being owned by blenders, MacDonald & Muir, for most of the 20th century, Glenmorangie had an early focus on bottling its single malt. Some records show that its single malt was being sold as early as the late 19th century. This became the distillery's main output in 1959, and with the unique flavours derived from Scotland's tallest stills, coupled with their pioneering use of wood finishing, Glenmorangie is now one of the world's biggest selling malts. As a result, the distillery portfolio over the years has been extensive, and little has been spared for independent bottlers.
This is a spectacular release, part of their Bond House No.1 Collection which is a series of bottlings from Glenmorangie's original 19th century warehouse. Bond House No.1 was transformed into the distillery's Stillhouse in order to increase production capacity the year after this was distilled, making it one of the final vintages to be warhoused there.
The fourth in the series, this is a vatting of of just two parcels of casks. Both were initially matured in bourbon wood before one was finished for over a decade in ex-Oloroso sherry, and the other in ex-Burgundy.
One of 7,551 bottles filled in 2018.
