Glenmorangie Single Malt Scotch Discovery Pack
This is one of our favorite scotch offers all year long. Why? It’s an exceptional deal. Here’s the simple math:
The Glenmorangie Original retails between $30 to $60 all day. The Discovery Pack is $29.99 and gets you additional scotch for free. FREE SCOTCH. Told
ya it was one of our favorites.
Now here is what is going on:
Most scotch distilleries estimate that approximately 80% of the entire flavor of the finished spirit comes from the barrel. Two decades ago Glenmorangie started down a then revolutionary of barrel management – and it shows.
Glenmorangie’s Original, their 10 year old, shows the great care taken with its first-fill bourbon casks as citrus and peach aromas greet the nose with hints of vanilla. On the palate these flavors continue, being rounded out with honey and buttered toast. The aftertaste is clean, yet still fruity. This is not a scotch of aggressive harshness. Rather, it is elegant, alluring, and smooth.
The distillery uses this 10 year matured scotch to create the next two offerings. Quinta Ruban switches the Sauternes for Port, and Lasanta finishes the spirit in Sherry casks. The Quinta Ruban opens with aromas of dark mint chocolate, tangerines and Seville oranges before giving way on the palate to roasted nuts, cream, and coco. Lasanta sherry cask takes the Glenmorangie Original’s notes of citrus and melds them seamlessly with butterscotch, caramel, and toffee. The palate is warm and complex, finish with the lingering taste of chocolate covered hazelnuts.
In short: the barrel matters. And nobody does this better than Glenmorangie.
But Glenmorangie doesn’t want to leave you in doubt. Hence, their Discovery Pack – a full 750 ml of The Original followed by one 50 ml bottle of each: Quinta Ruban, and Lasanta. Further, they have packaged them all together in a handsome Discovery Pack Case (normally I hate this sort of gift-packaging, but I have to admit that this one is kinda cool).
My advice? Get yourself three glasses and discover what great scotch is all about.
