Description

The palate was ridiculously lovely, it was sweet without being too sweet, I didn’t get any orange or citrus at all but I did get lychee but it was as if the lychee had been dipped in chocolate. As the taste develops it gets very complex and also frustrating as I tried to think of where the sweetness was coming from, I couldn’t nail anything in particular other than it evoked memories of my dear Nana’s sweet bowl which had a bit of everything. A Whisky born out of Master Distiller Dr Bill Lumsden’s obsession for the culture, fashion and food of Japan. The contradictory and multi-faceted nature of Tokyo inspired Dr Bill to reflect it into a Whisky.

Records the default button state of the corresponding category & the status of CCPA. It works only in coordination with the primary cookie. This superb Glenmorangie was created with a marriage of whiskies produced from two unique types of malted barley: a single estate Cadboll variety and malted chocolate barley, which is better known as a basis for craft beers. The classic Glenmorangie style as epitomised by Glenmorangie 10 majors on fresh fruit like oranges and peaches burnished with sweet American oak. Whisky creator Dr. Bill Lumsden is fond of saying that “that the orangey is morangey in Glenmorangie”, as a way of communicating the core flavour profile and how to pronounce the distillery name. Glenmorangie claims that it is made as it always has been by the ‘16 men of Tain’ but one name more than any other is synonymous with the distillery today: the aforementioned Dr Bill Lumsden. He was the distillery manager from 1995 to 1998, and from then head of distilling and whisky creation for everything in the Glenmorangie Company’s portfolio. Under Dr Lumsden the cask finishes continued such as Sauternes barrel Nectar D'Or, Port cask The Quinta Ruban 14 Year Old and sherry-finished Lasanta 12 Year Old. He’s also been at the forefront of experimentation earlier in the whisky making stage with products like Signet made using chocolate malt, Cadboll made with single estate barley, and A Tale of the Forest which uses barley kilned with botanicals.We take care to make sure product details are correct but the information shown, including vegan and vegetarian suitability, ingredients, and alcohol by volume (ABV) may change. The title says a lot about my reaction. I was stunned by the nose. It was... smokey? Like a gentle Islay peatiness...? (Think of the more mild pours of Bunnahabbain) What? In a Glenmorangie?? A hint of sweetness I couldn't place, but not quite the raisins and cocoa described in the notes. Certainly not the signature Glenmorangie sweetness I'm used to. Is the subtle smokiness I got, the "toasted..." described in the notes? It didn't seem near as subtle as "toasted," but okay. It's certainly not actually petty. But it was such a bold start. A very interesting whisky from Glenmorangie, its first made with barley kilned with botanicals. Inspired by the woodlands near Glenmorangie’s director of whisky creation Dr Bill Lumsden’s home, he decided to make a dram that would evoke the scents, sounds, and sights of the forest. It remained under the same ownership for the next 90 years, but Glenmorangie still suffered from the ups and downs that plagued the industry throughout the 20th century. The American market was particularly important for Macdonald & Muir with their Highland Queen blended whisky, named after Mary Queen of Scots. Consequently, Glenmorangie struggled throughout Prohibition, which came into force in 1919, and the distillery closed in 1931, only to reopen in 1936. A new, higher age stated Quinta Ruban from Glenmorangie. A voluptuously silky spirit, aged first in bourbon casks for smooth, fruity notes, then finished in ruby port casks to create velvety depth.

A sadly discontinued whisky from Glenmorangie, fans of its 15-year-old single malt will be filled with nostalgia! An interesting find for collectors and tasting clubs alike. The finish was just gorgeous, long, smooth sweet and it didn’t make me want to take another sip, it made me want to enjoy the lingering memories. This oaky and fruity small batch release results from rare experimentation with Cognac casks. It elegantly unites notes of spice and leather with Glenmorangie's wondrous fruitiness.Nose: The nose begins with chocolate raisins and sugared mixed peels. Toasted spices, bread and butter pudding and golden syrup complement these aromas, while a note of Angostura bitters lingers beneath.
