Glenmorangie has launched a new Burgundy Wood Finish 10 year-old, matured in exclusive Burgundy barriques from the celebrated Côte d’Or region of France, to produce a malt with a mouth-watering, soft fruit character. Glenmorangie’s guest wine finishes such as Sauternes and Côte de Nuits have been hugely successful so this adds a wine finish to their core wood expressions, alongside its current range of Port, Sherry and Madeira.
