Glenmorangie adds seventh to award-winning Private Edition series

Published:  21 January, 2016

Glenmorangie has announced the release of the seventh in its award-winning Private Edition series of whiskies.

Glenmorangie Milsean has been extra-matured in heavily toasted Portuguese red wine casks after its initial maturation in ex-bourbon casks.

Milsean is Scots Gaelic for 'sweet things'.

Dr Bill Lumsden, Glenmorangie's director of distilling and whisky creation, said: "A glass of Glenmorangie Milsean transports me straight to an old-fashioned sweet shop with its sweet and spicy bouquet, with hints of sugar cane, ripe fruits and fudge.

"Extra-maturing Glenmorangie in heavily toasted red wine casks for the first time, has allowed us to create a whisky recalling a bygone era. 

"I hope its deep tastes of cherries, angelica, candied orange peel and unusual intensity of caramelised fruits, will surprise and delight whisky aficionados and malt connoisseurs."

Glenmorangie Milsean is non chill-filtered and has an abv of 46%.

It will be available at Brown's Hotel London, as part of the hotel's 10-day whisky pop-up in the Library Bar.

Launched on January 20, the pop-up will offer some 40 different whiskies from 6:00pm each evening, including a range of drams from Glenmorangie.

A whisky sommelier will also be present to help guide customers through the choices on offer.

Glenmorangie Milsean retails at £75.99 in the off-trade and is available now from specialist whisky shops such The Whisky Exchange, Soho's Vintage House and Royal Mile Whiskies.

Other releases in the Glenmorangie's Private Edition series have included Glenmorangie Sonnalta PX, Glenmorangie Artein and Glenmorangie Tùsail.
