||Glenmorangie / Taghta
Country: Scotland Region: Highlands
Age: Strength: 46%.
Summary: Colour: Burnt Ochre.
Nose: Curiously nutty and salty at full strength, reminding you 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 Christmas 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, salted cashew nuts and some nice, toasty oak flavours, like walnut and leather.
The long aftertaste is rich, mellow and soothing, with flavours of toffee, caramel, chocolate and dates.
