Some time ago, our Director of Whisky Creation, Dr Bill, found himself musing over how some of his most joyful memories came from cake — from the pineapple upside down cake his daughter made for his birthday to baking with his Granny in her kitchen.
He devised this whisky to conjure the magic of a cake moment, finishing his favourite Glenmorangie Single Malt in the finest Tokaji dessert wine casks.
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. As you might expect, it tastes incredible when enjoyed with actual cake.
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 a splash of water, more zesty notes emerge, like apricot, elderflower, flowering currents, honey pollen and peach syrup.
The mouthfeel is surprisingly luscious and tart at the same time, leading into a burst of sweet, cake-like – 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.
As you’d imagine, this single malt tastes particularly delicious alongside real cake.
