50 bottles of Monet Hennessy's Glenmorangie 1963 will be available to purchase from this month. Bottled in 1987, the wood-finished whiskey matured for the last two years in Spanish Oloroso Sherry casks.
THe scotch whiskey was recently discovered in a hidden corner of one of Glenmorangie's expansive Highland warehouses.20 bottles will be made available to the U.S market from the 50 bottles produced.
Glenmorangie say the whiskey is walnut brown in colour and on nosing offers a mixture of toasted coconut, vanilla fudge and cherries and offers notes of juicy peaches, pineapples and sweet caramelised oranges, dusted with Demerara sugar.
Glenmorangie 1963 is going to be sold in a commemorative bottle fitting of its iconic 1960s heritage including the original label. Each bottle is engraved with a unique number and is presented in a metal "time capsule"-style box.
Dr. Bill Lumsden, Glenmorangie's Director of Distilling, said: "Glenmorangie 1963 is a unique opportunity for aficionados to sample a truly ground-breaking single malt whisky. It marked the first venture into extra-maturation, so it's a real slice of history for collectors. This is a phenomenal whisky capable of transporting those lucky enough to sample it back in time to the heady days of 1963."
