A Tale of The Forest is inspired by ancient Highland Whisky makers, and their process of drying barley with all kinds of forest fuel. Captivated by the notion of a Whisky steeped in the scents, sights and sounds of the forest, Glenmorangie's Director of Whisky Creation, Dr. Bill Lumsden, set about infusing natural botanicals with barley during the kilning process. The result is a botanical Single Malt that holds a forest-like magic.
Nose: A forest-like depth of taste and aroma, commencing with a bouquet of pine, juniper and coriander, along with roasted chestnut and an intriguing whisper of smoke.
Palate: Upon sipping, flavour explodes in the mouth. Whirls of peppermint, bursts of eucalyptus and rustles of bitter orange. All floating on clouds of vanilla with intriguing hints of black liquorice.
Finish: It concludes with a slow and luscious finish featuring lemon, orange and a soft hint of oak.
