Glenmorangie Malaga Cask Finish Single Malt is a limited-edition 12-year-old single malt matured in ex-bourbon casks and finished in casks that previously held one of the rarest fortified wines in the world - Malaga Dulce.

The area surrounding Spain’s ancient city of Malaga produces amazingly sweet fortified wines with Pedro Ximénez and Moscatel grapes. The winemaking history of the area is one of the oldest in Europe, but sadly the popularity of dessert wines fell considerably through the latter part of the 20th century, and Malaga’s sweet wine industry nearly disappeared altogether. It’s now one of the world’s rarest fortified wines, and as such Malaga casks are almost never used in Scotch whisky. Thankfully though, a new generation discovered its delights, and the winemakers get to live another day.

Glenmorangie’s Director of Whisky Creation, Dr Bill Lumsden, got his hands on a small number of incredibly hard to come by first-fill Malaga ‘dulce’ casks – the dulce being from the sweeter end of the Malaga spectrum - and imagining the multitude of sweet and syrupy tastes the casks would provide, filled them with his finest eight-year-old Bourbon matured whisky. After four years the very best Malaga casks were hand-selected for bottling. A dram that brings the sun-kissed flavours of the south of Spain to whisky lovers old and new. It's brimming with syrup pudding, milk chocolate, honeycomb and citrus fruits, along with gentle spices like cinnamon, ginger and nutmeg.

This sweet, rich whisky personally selected by Dr. Bill, is finished in casks which once held one of the world's rarest fortified wines, a style that almost became extinct. Malaga wines, originating from the sun-kissed south of Spain in the area surrounding the ancient city of Malaga, exist in a few styles, but by far the most sough after is 'Malaga dulce', the sweet version. This ancient wine is so rare that it is difficult to find bottled, and its use in the Scotch Whisky industry for finishing is almost unheard of.
