Glenmorangie Pride 1974: the most prestigious single malt
During a private evening event held on March 23 at New York City’s Steinway Hall, Glenmorangie unveiled therarest, oldest and deepest single malt Scotch whisky that the Highlands distillery has ever produced: GlenmorangiePride 1974. To mark the special occasion, Dr. Bill Lumsden, Glenmorangie’s Director of Distilling, Whisky Creation &Whisky Stocks, invited internationally renowned pianistAaron Diehl to perform the music piece inspired bythe precious nectar as part of a creative collaboration celebrating this whisky.
Glenmorangie Pride 1974 is the third limited-edition release of the Glenmorangie Pride collection, which includes the rarest and most precious malts produced the Scottish distiller. Destined for connoisseurs—only 503 crystal decanters will be released—and nurtured for 41 years, this whisky exhibits the best salty and spicy character that aging ever perfected.
“Its age lends Glenmorangie Pride 1974 an enriched intensity, borne of a slow, patient maturation. The result is an exquisite blend of deep, rich, salty and spicy aromas—aged balsamic vinegar, salted caramel toffee and oranges—, leading to tastes of baked apples, toffee, oranges and brown sugar. With its harmonic depths and exquisite melodies, Aaron Diehl’s inspired composition captures ournew whisky’s mystical beauty,” says Dr. Lumsden.
Glenmorangie Pride 1974 is the third release in the series of that name. This April, only 12 bottles will be available onthe Canadian market as a private import with a retail price of 8,000 euros.
