With a cherry on top
Glenmornagie’s Director of Whisky Creation, Dr. Bill Lumsden, often pondered on how many of his most cherished childhood memories came from cake.
He decided to create a whisky which reflected these moments finishing his favourite Single Malt in the finest Tokaji dessert casks - and A Tale of Cake was born.
Complex, rich and multi-layered, with a burst of passion fruit, peach, pear, mango. More savoury notes like baking bread, gentle sappy oak and a curious, flinty minerality emerge. This is then followed by classic Glenmorangie notes like honeycomb, vanilla and almond, with a hint of milk chocolate. With a splash of water, more zesty notes emerge, like apricot, elderflower, flowering currents, honey pollen and peach syrup.
The mouthfeel is surprisingly luscious and tart at the same time, leading into a burst of sweet, candy-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.
The lingering aftertaste again reminds you of a delicious combination of honeycomb, chocolate almond and pecan nuts.
