Glenmorangie whisky is a popular choice for Father’s Day, but it is also a popular choice during the holiday season. Therefore, customers can expect to find many Australian Christmas hampers containing delightful Glenmorangie whisky this year. Curious what Glenmorangie whisky our range of Australian Christmas hampers can offer? Find out below!

What Can You Tell Me About the Glenmorangie Original?

Our range of Australian Christmas hampers would not be perfect with a bottle of Glenmorangie Original, so this whisky is present in some of our Australian Christmas hampers. Of course, there is much to learn about the Glenmorangie Original from our Australian Christmas hampers collection, so let us elaborate a little on this iconic whisky.

The Glenmorangie Original is undoubtedly one of the most elegant whiskies in the world to date. It is also the backbone of the Glenmorangie whisky range, because the Glenmorangie Original put the Glenmorangie distillery on the proverbial map.

To ensure an exquisite whisky, Glenmorangie lets the Glenmorangie Original mature for a whopping ten years. The maturation process happens with first and second-fill American white oak casks and ex-bourbon casks, which ensure a unique flavour for this astonishing whisky.

The Glenmorangie Original has an aroma of citrus and ripe peaches, which is made softer by some complementing vanilla notes. The vanilla progresses into the flavour of the whisky, only to explode in flowery fruitiness.

Naturally, the aftertaste is also an important aspect of a good whisky. Fortunately, the Glenmorangie Whisky does not disappoint there either, featuring a clean aftertaste of orange and peaches. Therefore, the Glenmorangie Original is certainly a safe choice for many whisky lovers and connoisseurs.

What Can You Tell Me About the Glenmorangie Lasanta?

Like the Glenmorangie Original, the Glenmorangie Lasanta is part of the core Glenmorangie range and is also present in our collection of gift hampers. The Glenmorangie Lasanta is quite different from the Glenmorangie Original though, because this whisky is certainly exotic.

The Glenmorangie Lasanta can be described as a full-bodied whisky with an extra mature flavour. Like the Original, the Glenmorangie Lasanta is matured for at least ten years in American white oak and ex-bourbon casks. However, the Glenmorangie Lasanta is then matured for another two years in PX sherry casks, imported from Spain.

Due to the long maturation and the use of PX sherry casks, the Glenmorangie Lasanta is known for a warm aroma, taste and palate. It is reminiscent of the Spanish culture - and certainly provides more than a wink to some of the most popular sherries in the world.

The aroma of the Glenmorangie Lasanta is characterised by a mix of warm spices, chocolate, raisins, honeycomb and caramel toffee. The complex and interesting aroma follows through in the taste, since it is easy to detect sweet cherry flavoured sultanas, oranges, walnuts and butterscotch. Naturally, these exquisite flavours certainly lead to an interesting finish.

What Can You Tell Me About the Glenmorangie Quinta Ruban?

Another whisky available at the Hamper Emporium is the Glenmorangie Quinta Ruban, which is undoubtedly one of the darker and more intense Glenmorangie whiskies in the range. The whisky is matured for ten years in American white oak cask - followed by port pipes from the best wine estates in Portugal. So, whisky lovers can expect quite a unique flavour from this whisky.

The aroma of the Quinta Ruban is not exactly what you would expect when looking at this whisky, because the aroma of the Quinta Ruban is predominantly dark mint. The dark mint is complemented beautifully with tangerines, Seville oranges, sandalwood and walnuts. Therefore, this whisky already packs a lot of spice in the aroma alone.

Of course, the taste of the Quinta Ruban is also something that should be experienced first-hand. The aroma follows through with a mint chocolate flavour, complemented with walnut. The combination of these flavours ensures a smooth and velvety tasting experience, which pave the way for more taste notes such as rose, Turkish delight and Seville oranges.

Glenmorangie has done an excellent job of letting the mint shine in the aroma, flavour and finish, because whisky lovers will also notice the dark mint in the silky aftertaste of the Quinta Ruban. There are also some slight hints of orange, which ensure a somewhat refreshing and clean finish for this spicy whisky.

What Can You Tell Me About the Glenmorangie Nectar D’Or?

If your recipient likes elegant whiskies, then you cannot afford to pass on the Glenmorangie Nectar D’or. While it is difficult to combine the finesse of French wines with a distilled drink such as whisky, Glenmorangie certainly succeeded with the Glenmorangie Nectar D’Or.

The Glenmorangie Nectar D’or is matured in hand-selected wine barriques, which are imported from the Sauternes region. The result is a whisky with dominant dessert-like flavours and outstanding mouthfeel.

Dessert-like flavours are already noticeable in the aroma of the Glenmorangie Nectar D’Or, which contains hints of lime, orange, sultanas, dates, coconut and nutmeg. It is complemented beautifully with a full flavour of ginger, nutmeg, toasted almonds, honeycomb and lemon meringue. Therefore, this whisky is bound to please recipients with a love for whisky and a sweet tooth.

The finish of the Quinta Ruban is quite special too, because the flavour of the lemon meringue stays on the palate. It is also followed by some subtle hints of white chocolate, vanilla, ginger and nutmeg. Therefore, this whisky is ideal for true whisky lovers and connoisseurs.
