Whisky luxury from the Highlands of Scotland is best of the best!

Glenmorangie Pride 1981
Pure unadulterated luxury is an extremely limited edition single malt whisky from the Highlands of Scotland!

The whisky, Glenmorangie Pride 1981, was chosen as the single winner from eight nominated spirits in the Robb Report's 24th annual connoisseur's guide - the veritable "hotlist" of leaders in luxury.

With a suggested retail price of $3,600, Glenmorangie Pride 1981 comes complete with its own exquisitely designed Baccarat crystal decanter snugly fitting into a wooden case, and each is individually signed by Master Distiller, Dr. Bill Lumsden.

Glenmorangie Pride 1981 is the culmination of 28 years of passion, patience and artistry. Glenmorangie produces Scotland's favorite single malt and is known as the pioneer in extra maturation - aging of already matured whiskies in various wine casks.

The original intention had been to create an exquisite vintage 18 Years Old, yet in 1999, Dr. Lumsden acquired the key for crafting an even more outstanding whisky: a limited quantity of Sauternes barriques from the Chateau d'Yquem. The whisky was extra-matured for 10 more years in those prized casks - the longest period any Glenmorangie whisky has ever undergone extra-maturation.

Today, Glenmorangie Pride 1981 is ready to a point of perfection. The beguiling single malt contains rich flavors of sumptuous desserts sprinkled with Demerara sugar, underpinned by musky oak tones. This is Glenmorangie's ultimate expression.

Dr. Lumsden said, "Why 28 years and not a nice round 30? I felt if I left them in the barrels for another single day, the delicacy of the whisky would be overpowered. It's all a delicate balance. We are so delighted for our efforts to be recognized alongside the world's greatest luxury brands."

Brian Cox, Vice President of Glenmorangie US, added, "We are thrilled to have one of our prized Glenmorangie expressions included in the prestigious Robb Report's 'Best of Best.' We are in great company and winning this category is truly an honor and testament to the dedication and level of excellence Glenmorangie strives to meet every day."
