Glenmorangie Bacalta Private Edition 750ml
Product DescriptionGlenmorangie Bacalta Private Edition 750ml
A new approach was taken and bespoke casks were created to exacting specifications. These were long seasoned with Malmsey, the sweetest, loveliest and most prized of all Madeira wines. They were then baked in the sun while the intriguing wine they contained slowly sweetened within. Years later, now shipped to Scotland, they were set to work extra-maturing whisky, delivering enticing layers of complexity to this expression which is entirely delicious. The influence of the baked Malmsey Madeira casks is felt in the radiating and tempting flavors which characteristic this whisky. Glenmorangie Bacalta is the eighth release from the Private Edition Collection.
On the nose the overall sensation is sweet: there are inviting aromas of ripe apricots, then mineral notes followed by white chocolate. A little water brings out an aged-Balsamic tone, malty biscuits even. Its taste initially suggests mint toffee, then come baked fruits, honeycomb, almonds and dates. There is marzipan, white pepper and juicy honeydew melon. The finish is of rich syrup, caramelized citrus and pear, creamy fudge too, with a subtly appealing menthol sensation in the background. Glenmorangie Bacalta is a whisky of almost endless complexity.
