Glenmorangie Tale of Cake 70cl 46°

Archive Glenmorangie Tale of Cake 70cl 46°

Distillery : Glenmorangie / Country : Scotland / Reference: : 24093

Glenmorangie introduces us to its latest limited edition imagined by Dr Bill, director of creation of whiskies at the distillery, which follows on from the "Private editions" series.

This new "A tale of Cake" bottling is inspired by the simple and gourmet pleasure of a dessert, in reference to the best moments shared around a cake. To reproduce this delicacy with a sweet and mellow result, this Glenmorangie whisky benefited this time from aging in Tokaj barrels from Hungary, an exceptional sweet wine tasted as a dessert.

We thus discover a Single Malt with a warm colour, with an incredibly colorful palate, complex and rich in notes of honey, white chocolate and fruits.

To complete the tasting of Glenmorangie A tale of Cake, the distillery worked with Dominique Ansel, pastry chef nicknamed the "Willy Wonka of New York" who imagined the perfect cake for this expression: a delicious pineapple pastry with its flavours fruity and sweet composed of slices of almond sponge cake soaked in whisky syrup and covered with fresh pineapple and brown sugar ganache.

The Glenmorangie distillery operates with the tallest Pot Stills of Scotland (5.13m). This is the size of an adult giraffe!

These stills with spherical compartments (boil ball) play a decisive role in the crafting of the light and subtle Glenmorangie character. Only the lightest alcoholic vapours are collected. The spring waters used by the distillery are naturally filtered through limestone and impart Glenmorangie with its spicy character. The aged versions are increasingly powerful and develop delicate vanilla notes.

Glenmorangie is today an extraordinary pioneer in the art & science of oak cask maturation, and offers a spectacular choice of special finishes. Glenmorangie has a very strict policy and uses only first and second fill barrels, a process that magnifies the layers of flavours. The Glenmorangie distillate ages in ex-Bourbon, American white oak casks for at least 10 years. Glenmorangie collects a share from the ex-Bourbon casks and transfers it into casks that previously contained other alcohols or wines, thus extending the maturation: this is the “wood finish”. The use of casks that previously contained Sherry, Port, Madeira wines or Bourgogne wines maintains the essential balance of Glenmorangie whisky, while imparting intriguing characteristics to the spirit.

The art of cask maturation at Glenmorangie has been influenced by more than 25 years of research, enabling the Master Distiller to find the perfect casks for the Single Malts, and acquire the reputation of an expert amongst the circles of whisky maturation experts.

Nose: powerful and rich in fruity flavours: passion fruit, peach, pear and mango. Salted notes of bread and oak sap then emerge, along with an unexpected mineral touch reminiscent of flint. We also find the typical notes of Glenmorangie: honey, vanilla and almond, with also a hint of milk chocolate.

Palate: an astonishing sensation, pulpy and acidic, which reveals sweet aromas like a candy: honey, white chocolate, apricot, almond, vanilla and pear. Everything is balanced with tangy touches of orange and menthol, two aromas that have made Glenmorangie famous.

Finish: a magnificent blend of honey, chocolate, almonds and pecans lingers on the palate.
