Default Glenmorangie - Cellar 13 - Dating/ Valuing



Hi All,

Have 2 bottles of this and was wondering how you can tell the age/ bottling year? I know the bottles were given to my grandad about 11 years ago and this malt is now discontinued so was looking to treat my son to a very nice christmas present as I am not a whiskey drinker at all.

Any/ all advice welcome.

I'll see if I can have your bottles dated. I'm not familiar with Glenmorangie Cellar 13 - perhaps a Duty Free only expression.

Default Glenmorangie Cellar 13

This is what we found out: Glenmorangie Cellar 13 was originally launched in 1998. If you require a precise date for this particular bottle, then please look for the Lot Code - that is, the code normally found printed on the outside of the base of the bottle. (usually in the form or similar to "L4 350 10.22 4ML"). With this information, we should be able to have your bottle dated.

Some background information on Glenmorangie Cellar 13:

Cellar 13 was matured for 10 years in "American Mountain Oak" in the Glenmorangie Distillery's Cellar 13, a low, stone-walled and slate-roofed warehouse on the shores of the Dornoch Firth built and slate. The tasting notes mention that only 1st fill casks were used for the original Cellar 13 bottlings.

Hope this helps!
