Glenmorangie The Taghta
|Article:||Glenmorangie The Taghta|
|Whisk(e)y type:||Scotch Single Malt|
|Barrel:||Ex-bourbon casks, finish in ex-Manzanilla sherry casks.|
|Flavour:||A curiously nutty and salty nose, reminiscent of brazil nuts embedded in toffee, hints of linseed oil, and some savoury cured ham. A splash of water opens up the whisky, bringing into play a burst of aged balsamic vinegar, dried fruits, tangy-orange, and a gentle reminder of incense and spice.|
|Taste:||The texture is oily and viscous, with a delicious primary flavour of caramelised orange and lemon, plump sultanas, a hint of brown sugar, but then a wave of salty, briny notes - olives, sdalted cashew nuts and some nice, toasty oak flavours, like walnut and leather.|
|Finish:||Long, rich, mellow and soothing, with flavours of toffee, caramel, chocolate and dates.|
