Glenmorangie 12 years Palo Cartado Finish

Article: SCOMA-051611
Barrel Select Release
This deeply sweet and nutty small-batch release is the first Glenmorangie ever to be finished in rare Palo Cortado sherry casks. Aged for 12 years, it brings a new elegance to the Highland Distillery's delicate style.
The single malt spent its first eight years mellowing in American white oak bourbon casks. Then, delighted by that whisky's smooth, soft character, Dr Bill was inspired to finish a select batch in Palo Cortado casks, never before used at Glenmorangie.
Palo Cortado is the rarest variety of sherry, created purely by chance, when the protective 'flor' yeast does not form on sherry intended to become Amontillado.
Tasting Note:

Nose:
Rich, elegant and rounded. Toffee, fudge and vanilla sweetness entwine with mossy notes and mulled wine hints. Then come scents of honeyed ginger and milk-chocolate truffle dusted with cinnamon. A splash of water reveals notes of orange sherbet, carnations and Brazil nuts.

Palate:
An oily yet peppery texture leads to a burst of rich, sweet flavours. Treacle toffee and milk chocolate are threaded with notes of clove, ginger, cinnamon and nutmeg. Meanwhile, fruity undertones of raisins, dark plums and bitter orange find delectable balance with baking ryebread and salted nuts.

Finish:
Long and nutty, brimming with spice, leather and a touch of aniseed.
