Glenmorangie has just released a new single malt specially crafted to be used for mixing! This newest whisky is a combination of malts aged in ex-bourbon and newly charred oak casks, which highlight the signature sweet and fruit forward style of the brand. Why make a single malt specifically for mixing? Dr. Bill Lumsden said this creation came from their “dream of creating even more flavor possibilities, with a single malt that’s made to mix. Consulting with top bartenders, we crafted this sweeter, richer single malt for all those enjoying mixing at home…Luscious with vanilla and pear, succulent orange and honeysuckle, all drizzled with chocolate fudge, X by Glenmorangie is perfect paired with a favorite mixer.” And they even give you cocktail suggestions! Visit their website for recipes, such as the Date Night and Karaoke.
It should be noted the X does not stand for 10yrs old, but rather seems related to x-factor (meaning noteworthy or of special quality). Retail is about $32.
