Glenmorangie A Tale of Cake is a single malt Scotch whisky inspired by the joy of baking and delicious desserts. Matured in traditional casks and finished in Tokaji dessert wine casks, this whisky offers a unique and delightful taste profile reminiscent of cake.

Description

Nose

Marzipan and sweet oranges: Imagine the sweet, nutty aroma of marzipan icing paired with the juicy freshness of peeled oranges.

Milk chocolate and pistachio ice cream: A creamy milk chocolate note adds richness, while hints of pistachio ice cream provide a touch of floral sweetness and a subtle nuttiness.

Shortbread: A buttery, slightly biscuity aroma reminiscent of freshly baked shortbread cookies. This adds a bready element and a hint of vanilla.

Palate

Toasted nuts: Think toasted almonds, hazelnuts, and walnuts, adding a depth of flavor and a pleasant textural suggestion of crunch.

Dark chocolate: A richer, more bittersweet chocolate note compared to the milk chocolate on the nose. This balances the sweetness and adds complexity.

Leathery oak: A subtle note from the traditional cask maturation, providing a hint of spice and dryness that keeps the dram from being overly sweet.

Hint of tobacco: A very subtle smoky or earthy suggestion, adding a touch of intrigue.

Marmalade and figs: Hints of these sweet and tart fruits provide pops of flavor and a touch of complexity.

Warming ginger and nutmeg: These baking spices add a touch of heat and a pleasant aromatic quality, reminiscent of a warm cake fresh from the oven.

Finish

Long and warming: The flavors linger on the palate, leaving a pleasant glow and a continuation of the sweet and spicy notes.

Lingering sweetness: The sweetness from the Tokaji cask finish remains, but it’s balanced by the other flavor elements for a pleasant aftertaste.

Taste

The mouthfeel is surprisingly luscious and tart at the same time, leading into a burst of sweet, cake-like flavors - honey, white chocolate, apricot, almond, vanilla and pear. This is balanced by a hint of tangy orange and menthol, both classic Glenmorangie flavors.

Aroma

Complex, rich and multi-layered, with a burst of passion fruit, peach, pear and mango. More savory notes like baking bread, gentle sappy oak and a curious, flinty minerality emerge. Followed by honeycomb, vanilla and almond, with a hint of milk chocolate

With Water

With Water

More zesty notes emerge, like apricot, elderflower, flowering currents, honey pollen and peach syrup.
