Glenmorangie Spìos Private Edition No. 9

Glenmorangie’s Private Edition series offers a new take on its classic Highland malt. This year’s release, Spìos (Gaelic for spice), is its first single malt aged in old Rye casks from Kentucky. The grain’s spice works well with Glenmorangie’s lighter style, adding enticing notes of black peppercorn, spearmint and fresh tobacco to its warm toasted-oat and cinnamon flavors. It’s an easy sipper, and shines with just a splash of water.
