The Milsean

Glenmorangie's 2016 limited release is here! It's aged in special wine-treated casks based entirely on Dr. Bill Lumsden's love of candy from a young age. He wanted to create a single malt flavor that reminded him of that nostalgic feeling from his childhood. While I've yet to sink my teeth into this beautifully-packaged bottle, it's in stock as of right now so I'll give you the distillery's notes below:

Glenmorangie Milsean Private Edition Single Malt Whisky $99.99- From the distillery: "Glenmorangie Milsean (Scots Gaelic for ‘sweet things’ and pronounced ‘meel-shawn’) is a single malt whisky full of intense candied fruit flavours and mouth-watering sweetness. It has been created from Glenmorangie, matured in ex-bourbon casks, and then extra-matured in former wine casks, re-toasted for the purpose. This distinctive cask preparation replicates something of the moreish sweetshop flavours in a single malt whisky. It is the seventh annual release in our multi-award-winning and always intriguing Private Edition range. And Glenmorangie Milsean, with its remarkable sweetshop allusions, may be the most intriguing of them all."
