Every year Glenmorangie’s world renowned Master Distiller, Dr Bill Lumsden creates a limited edition that is the envy of many whisky makers.
Cake is for celebrating wonderful moments, and for sharing with friends. Baking, like whisky-making, is an exact science. But you donâ€™t have to understand that science to dive in and enjoy the delicious result!
Matured for ten years in ex-Bourbon casks, and finished in Hungarian Tokaji 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.
Nose: 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.
Palate: The mouthfeel is surprisingly luscious and tart at the same time, leading into a burst of sweet, cake-like flavours, 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 finish again reminds you of a delicious combination of honeycomb, chocolate almond and pecan nuts.
