Glenmorangie - A Tale of Cake - Limited Edition - Single Malt Scotch Whisky.
The Inspiration! Some of Dr Bill Lumsdens most joyful memories come from cake: from the upside-down pineapple cake his daughter made for his birthday, or even sneaking batter from his Granny's kitchen.
Dr Bill’s mission was to capture the joy of the perfect slice of cake in liquid form.
Dr Bill Lumsden devised this whisky to conjure the magic of a cake moment, finishing his favourite Glenmorangie Single Malt in the finest Tokaji dessert wine casks.The liquid is a rich copper, but the taste is pure technicolour, luscious, sweet and complex with multi-layered bursts of honey, white chocolate and fruits with a lilting hint of mint. As you might expect, it tastes incredible when enjoyed with actual cake.
This very unusual Glenmoranagie is bottled at 46% abv.
Colour: Rich Copper.
Nose: Complex, rich and multi-layered, with a burst of passion fruit, peach, pear, mango. More savoury notes like baking bread, gentle sappy oak and a curious, flinty minerality emerge. This is then followed by classic Glenmorangie notes like honeycomb, vanilla and almond, with a hint of milk chocolate. With a splash of water, more zesty notes emerge, like apricot, elderflower, flowering currents, honey pollen and peach syrup
Taste: The mouthfeel is surprisingly luscious and tart at the same time, leading into a burst of sweet, candy-like flavours –honey, white chocolate, apricot, almond, vanilla and pear. This is balanced by a hint of tangy orange and menthol, both classic Glenmorangie flavours.
Finish: : The lingering after taste again reminds you of a delicious combination of honeycomb, chocolate almond and pecan nuts.
