Description

The Glenmorangie Pride 1974 is the third release in the Pride series by Glenmorangie and is also the oldest Glenmorangie bottled to date. A 41 year old Highlands single malt made from a combination of bourbon and Oloroso sherry casks. It’s the successor of the Pride 28yo 1981 from 2010 and the Pride 34yo 1978 from 2012. This 41 year old was bottled in 2016 at natural cask strength of 52%, non chill filtered and with no added colour. A limited release of 503 bottles.

Nose: Wonderful, deep, rich, salty and spicy flavours. Salted caramel toffee, chocolate truffles. Turkish delight, rum and rains flavoured ice cream, and a hint of aged balsamic vinegar. 3 or 4 drops of water release myriad complex vapours, reminiscent of warm brioche, year floor, ginger snap biscuits and subtle, gentle blood orange, finally giving way to more hints of brioche, baked bread and cedar wood.

Palate: For a whisky of such age, the mouthfeel is soft, leading to surprisingly vibrant flavours of baked apples, oranges, honey and menthol. Lots of toffee, molasses, double cream and spicy clove and aniseed.

Finish: The aftertaste is lingering but gently soothing, with pecan nuts, leather, fudge and creamy caffè latte.
