Captivated by the scents he found in Glenmorangie’s 18 Year Old's bouquet, the floral artist likened this single malt to the wonder of a flower in bloom. He explains: "It begins with rich, rounded aromas of dried fruits and honey, then unfurls into a bouquet of geranium, tuberose and jasmine. They dance on the tongue with honeysuckle and sweet pea, figs and nuts until the blossoms fade into a sweet and lingering finish. As Azuma Makoto translated the whisky's delicious bourbon cask softness and sweet, Oloroso sherry cask hints, he drew on the beauty of almost 100 different blooms from across the world. He coaxed each one into blossom at his Tokyo studio for his floral masterpiece Dancing Flowers of Glenmorangie which is shared in this wondrous limited edition.

Glenmorangie 18 Year Old Azuma Makoto Limited Edition Scotch Whisky is a rare and distinguished expression that exemplifies the artistry of aged single malt. With a rich golden amber hue, this exclusive release captivates the senses with a sophisticated and complex bouquet.

Upon the first nosing, one is greeted by a harmonious blend of sweet and fruity notes, where the essence of honeyed apricots mingles with the subtle hint of ripe pear. The aroma further deepens as layers of vanilla, toffee, and a touch of floral elegance unfold, creating a captivating olfactory symphony.

The palate is an indulgent journey of flavors, showcasing the meticulous craftsmanship that comes with 18 years of maturation. Velvety and full-bodied, the whisky unveils a delightful interplay of dried fruits, including sultanas and figs, intertwined with decadent toffee and the warmth of oak spices. There's a delicate undercurrent of baking spices, such as cinnamon and nutmeg, adding an extra layer of complexity to the tasting experience.

The Azuma Makoto Limited Edition reveals itself as a masterfully balanced whisky with a lush and smooth texture, attributed to the lengthy maturation in a combination of oak casks. The finale is enduring and memorable, leaving a lasting impression of oak-induced warmth, dried fruit sweetness, and a whisper of gentle spices.

This limited edition release not only celebrates the passage of time but also pays homage to the artistry of Azuma Makoto, whose collaboration with Glenmorangie has resulted in a truly exceptional and collectible Scotch whisky. A testament to the brand's commitment to excellence, this 18 Year Old expression is a connoisseur's delight, offering a rare glimpse into the world of meticulously crafted and well-aged single malts.
