OK, just go with us on this one.. Some time ago, Glenmorangie’s 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.
Dr Bill then made it his mission to capture the joy of the perfect slice of cake in liquid form. He therefore devised this whisky to conjure the magic of a cake moment, finishing his favourite Glenmorangie Single Malt in the finest Tokaji dessert wine casks.
The liquid is a rich copper, but the taste is pure technicolour, so the marketing-types tell us –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’s said to taste incredible when enjoyed with actual cake. So, what are you waiting for? Grab a slice of cake, top up your glass and decide if Dr Bill has got it right!
