Glenmorangie 26 Years Old 1993 Truffle Oak Reserve
Singularly deep and complex, this rare single malt is long finished in ‘truffle oak’ casks crafted from the oak trees of Germany’s Black Forest. Their exceptionally porous wood, seldom used at Glenmorangie, brings a distinctive nuttiness to our spirit.
Years ago, Dr Bill Lumsden became inspired by the natural balance between these trees and the black truffles which nestle in their roots. Intrigued to explore their influence on Glenmorangie’s classic, fruity style, he filled a handful of casks with our signature single malt.
Finished in those casks for two years, our first limited edition of Truffle Oak Reserve was released in 2005. But believing time’s alchemy could bring forth a more extraordinary whisky still, Dr Bill set aside four select casks for a remarkable 16-year finish.
Bottled in its prime, aged 26 years (First aged for 10 years in bourbon casks, then finished for 16 years in truffle oak casks from Germany’s Black Forest), his creation deliciously balances Glenmorangie’s tropical fruit notes with nutty, truffled depths
