About Glenmorangie Grand Vintage 1997 Single Malt Scotch Whisky

Bond House No. 1 Collection is an award-winning series that was designed to showcase the individuality of Glenmorangie’s most prized vintage malt whiskies. The series is named after the largest of the distillery’s 19th century Bonded Warehouses, which was transformed into a still house in 1990.

Glenmorangie Grand Vintage Malt 1997 is the seventh expression in the Bond House No. 1 Collection. The base of this expression was aged for 23 years, initially in ex-Bourbon casks for 10 years, and then finished for 13 years in rare red wine casks from Château Montrose in Bordeaux, developing extraordinary dark berry fruit flavors. The vintage bottling was rounded off by the combination of whisky matured exclusively in ex-Bourbon casks for Glenmorangie’s hallmark citrus notes, whisky from ex-Oloroso sherry casks to add layers of sweetness and spicy finesse, and some secret casks. This lively and floral expression is bottled at 43% ABV.

About Glenmorangie

In 1738, a brewery was built upon Morangie Farm in the Highlands region of Scotland. A century later, William Matheson acquired the farm and equipped the Morangie brewery with two stills that he purchased second-hand, and renamed the brewery-converted-distillery Glenmorangie.

Glenmorangie Single Malt Scotch Whisky is made using malted barley, which is mashed and fermented with water sourced from the Tarlogie Spring. The water produced from the spring, which spends nearly a century underground being filtered through layers of limestone before it is extracted, is unusually rich in minerals. In the 1980s, when development in the area threatened the spring's water quality, Glenmorangie purchased 600 acres of land around and including the spring in order to ensure consistent water quality and adequate supply.

After the barley has been fermented, the wash is twice distilled through Glenmorangie's copper-pot stills by a team of 16 distillers known as the Sixteen Men of Tain. Glenmorangie's stills are equipped with relatively small boiler pots, which increases the exposure of the whisky to the copper, resulting in a more pure flavor. In addition, the stills are nearly seventeen feet tall — the tallest of any distillery in Scotland — and as a result, produce a lighter, more refined whisky.

About Scotch

Scotch is the most popular whisky in the world and is considered the king of them all! There are five whisky regions in Scotland (six if you count the not officially recognized Islands), and each of them produces spirits with unique properties and distinct tasting notes. (The type of grain used determents the type of the scotch.)


Malt whisky is made of malted barley, and grain whisky uses other grains like corn or wheat. Most of the time, a whisky is blended from different distilleries hence the name blended scotch, but if a malt whisky is produced in a single distillery, we get something extraordinary called a single malt.

The nose is complex, with floral notes of rose, jasmine and carnation intermingling with soft red fruits, mint toffee, pastry or cake mix and a sweet confectionery top note. The palate is slightly tingly and gently spicy, 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, together with sweet ginger and chili notes, gentle almond marzipan and vanilla toffee apple. The finish is sweet, rich, long and delicately spicy.
