Glenmorangie A Tale of Winter Limited Edition Single Malt describes its new 13-year-old single malt Scotch whisky as bursting with fruit and honey, cocoa dust, and spice. The bottle’s label, meanwhile, evokes cheery Christmas jumpers.
Snowed in at home, our Director of Whisky Creation, Dr. Bill, began dreaming of this whisky. His goal was to capture the snug and magical feeling of sitting in front of the fireplace as snow blankets the world outside. In pursuit of a rich, radiant taste and wintery aroma, he finished the 13-year-old single malt in Marsala wine casks from Sicily.
The experience begins with light flurries of fruit and honey, building to torrents of cocoa dust, flakes of red pepper, and chunks of brazil nut toffee. It culminates in a feels-like-forever finish that swirls with cinnamon, ginger, and clove.
” Rustic and wild on the nose, with barrel char, burnt-rubber smokiness, and raspberry and green banana emerging. Rich, full, and honey-textured on a palate of milk chocolate, almond nuttiness, and spice, with notes of dried leaves and old oak. Dark rather than bright, with the cask influence lending a certain profundity. Spice and tobacco leaf accent a finish of dried dark fruits and more chocolate, with cherry and spice at the end.” – David Fleming, Whisky Advocate
Curious and slightly sharp, with the classic Marsala top – note of slightly oxidized fruits. Hints of orange toffee intermingle with a fragrant top note of lavender honey and sweet rose.
A juicy viscous, but slightly peppery mouthfeel, leads into a burst of sweet, nutty flavors – Sweet demerara sugar and a long lingering spicy aftertaste of clove, ginger, and cinnamon.
