Glenmorangie A Tale of Cake

I’ve been looking forward to tasting this since I first read of it and it didn’t disappoint. It’s been finished in casks that held Tokaji dessert wine (no me neither!) to give it a noticeable sweetness. The nose is immediately filled with oranges which then give way to gingerbread and clotted cream and then loads of burnt toffee

The palette is as smooth as you’d expect from Glenmorangie with lots of vanilla, honey and chocolate, particularly Terry’s Chocolate Orange. Later I got nutty overtones

The finish has a real bite with loads of oranges and the taste of Crunchie

This is a well balanced dram that, whilst it doesn’t remind me of any particular cake, does have lots of sweet, creamy and fruity notes commensurate with finishing in a dessert wine cask
