Glenmorangie The Cadboll Estate

Glenmorangie Cadboll Estate 15 Years

Glenmorangie already had a Cadboll expression for the travel retail market and now there is a Glenmorangie Cadboll Estate 15 Years coming up.

Named after a silver goblet dating back to the 16th century and matured in American oak bourbon casks, it is said to be an extra creamy whisky.



Big Peat 33 Years - cognac & sherry

Big Peat 33 Years (cognac + sherry)

Douglas Laing presented a limited edition Big Peat 33 Year Old, distilled in 1985 and finished in a rather unique combination of cognac and sherry casks.

It comes at cask strength 47.3% and just 1500 bottles exist, which are expected to retail for around € 290.
