Glenmorangie Pride 1981 Highland Single Malt Scotch Whisky is a single malt whisky beyond comparison. Glenmorangie Pride 1981 is the culmination of 28 years of passion, patience and artistry. As its name implies, the birth date was 1981 when the original liquid was distilled and laid down for maturation in Glenmorangie’s finest oak casks. The intention had always been to create an exquisite vintage 18-Year-Old, yet in 1999, a key was acquired to craft an even more outstanding whisky: a limited quantity of Sauternes barriques from the fabled vineyards of Chateau d’Yquem. Thus the whisky was extra-matured for 10 more years in those prized casks – the longest period any Glenmorangie whisky has ever undergone extra-maturation.
