A master of the universal language of flowers, Azuma Makoto delighted in our radiant whisky’s dancing floral notes. And for our unique collaboration, he has reimagined its fragrant richness in a delectably floral limited edition.
Captivated by the scents he found in our 18 Year Old’s bouquet, the floral artist likened our 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 sweetness, 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 we share in this wondrous limited edition.
Aroma: Rich, rounded, and sweet with dried fruit and complex floral notes such as geranium, jasmine, and narcissus.
Taste: A silky balance of honey, malt, and a host of flowers including tuberose, sweet pea, and honeysuckle. Rich figs and dates emerge with a hint of wood smoke in the background.
Finish: Long and enticing with the sweetness of dried fruit and subtle dryness of Oloroso nuttiness.
