Raise your glasses to the Scots

Cocktails from Moet Hennessy, Beam Suntory

This World Whisky Day, Moët Hennessy India raises a glass and calls in the celebration with Glenmorangie The Original (10-YO) single malt Scotch whisky; as well as the 10-YO Ardbeg which, instead of flaunting the peat, gives way to natural sweetness.


Glenmorangie The Original

First released more than 175 years ago by the founders, the original Glenmorangie 10-YO was known for its mellow tones and delicacy of flavour. The Original is distilled twice in the tallest stills in Scotland, creating delicate layers of citrus and floral notes.

Matured for 10 years exclusively in the best ex-Bourbon American white oak casks, only using 1st and 2nd fill casks, it delivers a purer, smoother spirit with deep notes of peach and sweet vanilla.

It is bottled when the spirit and casks are at the peak of maturity and flavour to deliver the perfect balance between sweetness and complexity. It is priced at Delhi – Rs. 4,800 (Delhi), Rs. 7,618 (Bengaluru) and Rs. 7,426 in Mumbai.

Ardbeg 10 year old

Revered around the world as the peatiest, smokiest, most complex single malt of them all, Ardbeg 10-YO does not flaunt the peat; rather it gives way to the natural sweetness of the malt to produce a whisky of perfect balance.

Named ‘World Whisky of the Year’ in 2008, the peat effervesces with tangy lemon and lime juice, black pepper pops with sizzling cinnamon-spiced toffee. Then comes a wave of brine infused with smooth buttermilk, ripe bananas and currants.

Smoke gradually wells up on the palate, bringing a mouthful of warm, creamy cappuccino and toasted marshmallows, presenting a single malt Scotch like no other. It is priced at Rs. 6,675 in Delhi, Rs. 8,117 in Bengaluru, and Rs. 4,114 in Mumbai.
