Glenmorangie the Taghta Highland single malt Scotch whiskey. Double matured in Manzanilla sherry casks.
Aroma: Curiously nutty and salty, reminding you of Brazil nuts embedded in toffee, hints of linseed oil, some savoury cured ham, dried fruits, tangy-orange, and a gentle reminder of Christmas incense and spice.
Taste: A delicious primary flavour of caramelised orange and lemon, plump sultanas, a hint of brown sugar, followed by a wave of salty, briny notes – olives, salted cashew nuts and some nice, toasty oak flavours, like walnut and leather.
Finish: Rich, mellow and soothing, with flavours of toffee, caramel, chocolate and dates.
Glenmorangie Single Malt Whiskey
Glenmorangie Distillery was established in 1843 by William Matheson at Morangie Farm where distilling had likely been practiced as early as 1703. Glenmorangie is situated on the shore of the Dornoch Firth at Tain in Scotland's Highland whiskey region. Tall gin stills were installed rather than shorter whiskey stills when the distillery was established and so Glenmorangie has twelve of the tallest whiskey stills in Scotland standing 5.14m tall. This distillery has a core range which includes Glenmorangie 10 Year Old, Glenmorangie 18 Year Old and Signet.
