Product Description

A Tale Of Cake

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 favorite Glenmorangie Single Malt in the finest Tokaji dessert wine casks.

The liquid is a rich copper, but the taste is pure technicolor, 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 savory 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 flavors.

The lingering aftertaste again reminds you of a delicious combination of honeycomb, chocolate almond and pecan nuts.

A DELICIOUS COLLABORATION…

As you’d imagine, this single malt tastes particularly delicious alongside real cake, which is why Glenmorangie has paired up with Dominique Ansel. Like Dr Bill, the pastry chef hailed as “the Willy Wonka of New York”, has a passion for exploring new tastes (take for example his world-famous Cronut® – a donut-croissant hybrid).

Inspired by our whiskies, he has created a series of indulgent cake and cocktail pairings – ‘CakeTails’ – which showcase their unique flavors with an extra slice of fun.
