Dr. Bill Lumsden and the Glenmo team have upped the ante for great estate whiskies at a reasonable price. The Cadboll Estate is a spirit crafted from Glenmorangie’s own Cadboll Estate barley, grown only in the fields surrounding their Highland home. Distilled in Scotland’s tallest stills, it is aged in hand-selected, first-fill American White Oak ex-Bourbon casks to create a single-estate whisky of oaky depths and rounded smoothness. This limited edition brings a unique creaminess and sweet, oaky depths adding to the distillery’s signature, easy-drinking style. Intense aromatics open with biscuits and orange oil, softened by honeycomb, jasmine and rose petal. The palate is awash in creamy butter candy, white chocolate, ripe pears and
mandarin with the sweet touch of mint. This is a well-balanced malt with flavors fans of the distillery’s signature line-up will thoroughly enjoy. Our limited allocation won’t last long!
Glenmorangie has been growing its own barley for years, but this U.S. exclusive marks the first release produced entirely from its estate-grown grain. Honeysuckle and jasmine waft over lemon curd and shortbread on the nose, while bright aromas of blueberry and lime stand out. The palate is malty and full: shortbread with tumbling fresh blueberries, toasted almonds, and gingery spice. It’s silky, rounded, and seamless into the finish, and beautifully transformed by a drop of water. *Number 13 in the 2020 Top 20*
