Glenmorangie 18 Year Azuma Makoto
Captivated by the scents he found in our 18 Year Old’s bouquet, the floral artist likened our single malt to the wonder of a flower in bloom. He explains: “It begins with rich, rounded aromas of dried fruits and honey, then unfurls into a bouquet of geranium, tuberose and jasmine. They dance on the tongue with honeysuckle and sweet pea, figs and nuts until the blossoms fade into a sweet and lingering finish.
As Azuma Makoto translated the whisky’s delicious bourbon cask softness and sweet, Oloroso sherry cask hints, he drew on the beauty of almost 100 different blooms from across the world. He coaxed each one into blossom at his Tokyo studio for his floral masterpiece Dancing Flowers of Glenmorangie, which we share in this wondrous limited edition.
