Glenmorangie adds Fifth Private Edition

38668 Companta Bottle

Glenmorangie has released it’s fifth annual Private Edition, Companata. The latest addition to Glenmorangie’s group of rare malts is aged in Grand Cru and Côtes du Rhône casks. The whisky follows last year’s release of Ealanta. The name Companata translates from Scots Gaelic as friendship and celebrates the continuing relationship between Glenmorangie and its French vineyards.
Benefiting from non-chill filtration for extra body and texture, the whisky has a nose of red berries, woodsmoke and nutty oak and has a spicy palate of stewed fruits, sugared plums alongside milk chocolate and brown sugar.
Director of Distilling and Whisky Creation, Dr Bill Lumsden said, “To complement the bold, spicy character imparted from the Grand Cru casks, I selected a parcel of Glenmorangie which had been extra-maturing in casks having previously contained a lusciously sweet fortified wine from Côtes du Rhône. It took some time, but with careful fine tuning we reached a harmonious assemblage which proved the perfect balance; neither too bold nor too tame!”
