Glenmorangie Pride '78 Bottling Note

Following on from the Glenmorangie Pride 1981, Dr Bill Lumsden has crafted the Glenmorangie Pride 1978. Distilled in 1978, this single malt Scotch whisky was initially matured for 19 years before it was given an extra maturation in 5 very special French Premier Grand Cru claret wine casks. Dr Lumsden wanted to use these rare casks for something amazing, and so the whisky matured in them for a further 15 years - the longest extra-maturation period a Glenmorangie whisky has ever received. The superb whisky was then bottled in 2012. Only 700 of these round decanters, housed in ornate presentation cases, have been produced.

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose: All sorts of red fruits - redcurrants, cranberries and cherries. Roasted chestnuts, rich wood smoke and toffee. Develops notes of apple further on.

Palate: Drying notes of roasted walnut, Brazil nut and dynamic spices - cinnamon, cumin and clove. Milky coffee and green fruits. Well-judged tannins.

Finish: Brilliantly long and satisfying. Spice and nutty notes last throughout.

Overall: Dr Lumsden has created a masterpiece of a Glenmorangie, one that shows masses of care and attention to the craft.

User Reviews of the Glenmorangie Pride 1978 1l


To me it tasted a lot like Bells Whiskey but a bit more expensive.

Nectar of the Gods

This elixir is without a doubt the smoothest dram I have ever consumed. A natural companion to bacon and biscuits.
