Glenmorangie A Tale of Winter is a Highland Single Malt Scotch Whisky that was created to conjure up the memories and flavours of cosy, snowy winter. The brainchild of Dr Bill Lumsden and his team this 13 year old whisky is initially matured in ex-Bourbon barrels and finished it in ex-Marsala casks, creating a whisky with a slightly peppery mouthfeel, leading to a burst of sweet, nutty flavours, cocoa powder, red peppers, brazil nut toffee and sweet barley malt.
70cl at 46% alc./vol, non-chill Filtered
Curious and slightly sharp, with the classic Marsala top-note of slightly oxidised fruits. Hints of orange toffee intermingles with a fragrant top note of lavender honey and sweet rose. With water, some caramelised fruits (oranges & pears) emerge, along with a hint of sandalwood, brazil nut and hint of pine sap.
A juicy viscous, but slightly peppery mouthfeel, leads to a burst of sweet, nutty flavours, cocoa powder, red pepper, Brazil nut toffee, sweet barley malt and sweet demerara sugar.
A long lingering finish with spicy aftertaste of clove, ginger and cinnamon.
