Glenmorangie has launched the seventh of its Private Edition series of single malts, using heavily toasted Portuguese red wine casks to create a sweetly fruity whisky.
Glenmorangie Milsean "? pronounced "?meel-shawn' and Scots Gaelic for "?sweet things' "? is the first expression from the distillery to be extra-matured or "?finished' in heavily toasted Portuguese red wine casks.
The no age statement (NAS) whisky is the seventh Private Edition Glenmorangie, and was matured in ex-Bourbon casks before spending "?a number of years' in casks previously used to age Portuguese red wine.
Dr Bill Lumsden, Glenmorangie's director of distilling and whisky creation, arranged for the casks to be heavily charred before they were used to mature Milsean, which is bottled at 46% abv and non-chill filtered.
