In 1843, William Matheson founded the Glenmorangie Distillery in the Scottish Highlands. Inspired by the Distillery’s peaceful surroundings on the banks of the Dornoch Firth, he brought forth a pioneering single malt whisky wonderfully complex and exceptionally smooth.
Legend has it that just offshore from the Glenmorangie Distillery is the shipwreck of a 16th Century Spanish Galleon. Once loaded with treasure, it is one of many ships lost when the Spanish Armada fled from the English Navy round the Scottish coast.
Glenmorangie Tayne captures this tale and is something of a Spanish treasure itself, having been aged in carefully selected Amontillado Sherry casks, a rarely seen finish in the world of whisky.
Nose - Fragrant and floral, with hints of rose and roasting chestnuts. Lots of toffee/caramel, sweet apricots, and some nuttiness. Further exploration yields muscovado sugar, hints of aromatic coffee and chocolate coated raisins.
Palate - An oily warming texture leads into rich, sweet flavours of toffee, brown sugar, tropical fruits (peaches, mango and orange) and a gentle nuttiness, like walnut or Brazil nuts.
Finish - A long, spicy finish, with bitter-sweet citrus and dried fruits.
