Dr. Bill Lumsden, the head of distilling and whisky creation for Glenmorangie, hosted a tasting for invited guests at Astor Center. His class helped offer a better understanding of how aging whiskies in different types of casks produces products with a wider range of aromas and flavors. This is one way in which Glenmorangie has lead the way in creating unique expressions. Additionally, Glenmorangie’s decision to use casks that once held other products (Sherry, Port, etc.) has paved the way for other producers to do the same, a trend that has now spread throughout the whisky-making community. – Steve Bowles
