Glenmorangie 18 year old.

Postby r900p » Tue Dec 18, 2007 12:02 am

Just seen this bottle on a online shop, why is it considered rare of described as rare? A price of £75.00 suggests that maybe it is.

Yep that's about right. Also It's being or been phased out. So get it whilst you can it's worth it. Not seen it around here for a while and would like to acquire a bottle.

Presumably they are just referring to the old bottle shape when they claim it is rare. Sounds like they are trying to rip off the whisky drinkers to me. Which shop was it Rob?

i dont think its getting phased out, just getting repackaged. the new box opens in the middle like a book, and the price has been bumped up.

Just thought I'd add this comment from a specialist whisky shop.

GLENMORANGIE 15 Year Old
Rich and grapey Glenmorangie with lots of fruit and vanilla. Highly rated by Dave Broom. This product was discontinued in Summer 2007 as part of the comprehensive range review
NO LONGER AVAILABLE. This 'Dearly Departed' whisky is a rare, discontinued bottling shown for information only

The "Glenmorangie 15yo" (now indeed discontinued)was scrummy. A real Winter's evening by the fire dram. Luckily, I scooped a couple of bottles last month from Asda at just £15 each.

The old "Glenmorangie 18yo" was never desperately easy to find on the high street, but I luckily picked one up from Nickolls & Perks a few weeks back for £45. I hear that the new 18yo is approx £70-£80, which strickes me as a steep rise despite the new fancy packaging and 'tweaks' with the ABV and filtering.

That's an awesome deal. I picked one up for about $75 a couple months ago and thought it was a decent buy. It is a great scotch and I won't hesitate to grab a spare (or two) if I come across one.

I prefer the new bottling of the 18 yo to the older bottling. I believe the higher proof helps out a bit. However, if I'm getting a Glenmo it will be the Nectar d'Or.

The "Extremely Rare" you're referring to is just what Glenmorangie have decided to call their 18yo. Just like Glenfiddich is referring to their 18yo as an "Ancient Reserve".
