Glenmorangie A Tale Of Cake (Tokaji Dessert Wine Cask Finish)
HOW DOES IT TASTE?
The liquid is a rich copper, but the taste is pure technicolour, luscious, sweet and complex with multi-layered bursts of honey, white chocolate and fruits with a lilting hint of mint.
Colour: Deep Copper
Aroma: 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 water: more zesty notes emerge, like apricot, elderflower, flowering currents, honey pollen and peach syrup.
Taste: The mouthfeel is surprisingly luscious and tart at the same time, leading into a burst of sweet, cake-like flavours – honey, white chocolate, apricot, almond vanilla and pear. This is balanced by a hint of tangy orange and menthol, both classic Glenmorangie flavours.
The lingering aftertaste again reminds you of a delicious combination of honeycomb, chocolate almond and pecan nuts.
