Looking for the right gift for that scotch-loving client…or what to recommend said client request in the top-tier bars he or she invariably frequents? We hear that Glenmorangie's Pride 1981 has won the spirits category in Robb Report's "Best of Best" Issue out of eight nominated libations.
The scotch's presentation sounds pretty swank, too: With an extremely limited distribution of only 100 bottles in the U.S., the whisky is presented in a custom-designed Baccarat crystal decanter (pictured) and individually signed by Master Distiller Bill Lumsden.
Glenmorangie Pride 1981 was originally going to be an 18-year-old scotch, but in 1999, Lumsden acquired a limited quantity of Sauternes barriques from the Chateau d'Yquem. So the whisky sat and matured for 10 more years, reportedly the longest period any Glenmorangie whisky has ever undergone extra-maturation. We hear that the single malt contains "rich flavors of sumptuous desserts sprinkled with Demerara sugar, underpinned by musky oak tones."
