Glenmorangie 1971

This is a limited edition whiskey that was bottled to mark the 150th anniversary of the distillery which was opened in 1843. It comes in a wooden presentation box and had I known what it was worth today, I probably would have sold it on ebay. The bottle I saw on the webs was very pricy and carried a warning about the seal. Sure enough, the cork on my bottle was dried out and broke off when I tried to open it. I had to push the remaining cork into the bottle and then strain out the cork pieces.

It is dark amber with a spicy nose. It is very smooth with a long finish. After all, it you are paying over $1000 for a bottle, it better be worth it.

This bottle was a gift and I don't think the giver spent that much and it may have been in my closet for 10 - 15 years. Obviously, if you have that amount of disposable income to spend on Scotch, you can spend your money on a good selection and be just as happy.
