X by Glenmorangie is a single malt Scotch whisky designed with adventurous mixologists and curious drinkers in mind.

Crafted in consultation with top bartenders, this innovative whisky allows you to explore new flavor combinations with ease.

Description

Aroma

Initial Impression: Unlike the typical Glenmorangie single malt profile, X welcomes you with a sweeter and richer character. Look for prominent notes of vanilla extract, hinting at creamy desserts. Hints of pear add a juicy and refreshing touch, while succulent orange peel brings a burst of citrus zest.

Deeper Sniffs: As you delve deeper, a touch of chocolate fudge emerges, adding a surprising layer of depth and complexity. This unexpected note hints at the potential for X to create intriguing flavor combinations in cocktails. Depending on the batch, you might detect a subtle floral note or even a hint of honey, adding another layer of intrigue.

Palate

First Sip: The medium body offers a satisfying mouthfeel without being heavy, making it a great base for cocktails that won’t be weighed down. The 40.0% ABV delivers a gentle warmth that complements the flavors without overpowering the mixers you choose. The sweetness from the aroma translates onto the palate, with vanilla taking center stage. Hints of honey or butterscotch might emerge, influenced by the maturation process. The pear and orange notes become more apparent, creating a juicy and refreshing character.

Midpalate: As the whisky opens up, the surprise element of the chocolate fudge note comes into play. It doesn’t overpower the sweetness, but rather adds a hint of richness and intrigue. This interplay between sweet, fruity, and slightly decadent flavors provides a unique canvas for crafting cocktails with unexpected twists. The overall impression is smooth and balanced, ensuring X integrates seamlessly with various mixers.

Finish

Lingering Flavors: The sweetness fades gradually, leaving a pleasant warmth and a touch of oaky dryness on the palate. Hints of vanilla, pear, and orange linger alongside a subtle touch of chocolate fudge. The overall finish is clean and refreshing, inviting you to experiment with different mixers and create cocktails with lingering yet balanced flavor profiles.
