Every once in a while, liquor brands release special (and rather expensive) editions long awaited by collectors and aficionados alike, but Glenmorangie has officially upped the ante with its latest release: a $9,000 bottle of single malt scotch complete with its own original composition by revered jazz pianist Aaron Diehl.
Glenmorangie Pride 1974 is kind of a big deal for a few reasons. Firstly, it’s old as hell (it sat in a barrel for 41 years) – the brand’s longest aging to date. For those who don’t know, the longer you age, the smoother the whisky (generally). Secondly, the collaboration with Diehl and Steinway & Sons pianos is pretty genius – it’s not only designed to evoke the notes and intensity of the scotch, but it’s also a full-circle multisensory tasting experience that’s essentially the first of its kind.
