Glenmorangie Bacalta (2017 Private Edition)

From the distiller:

The eighth release in our multi-award-winning and always intriguing Private Edition, Glenmorangie Bacalta brings new heights of complexity to a rare wood finish. Inspired by the long, balmy days on the island of Madeira, Glenmorangie Bacalta (Scots Gaelic for “baked”) is a sun-soaked single malt which delivers wonderfully warm layers of sweetness, brimming with baked fruits and honeyed tones. It has been created from Glenmorangie first matured in former bourbon casks, then extra-matured in bespoke casks baked under the sun which once contained Malmsey Madeira – the sweetest and most prized of the Madeira wines.

Our Take

A very soft almost floral aroma with a nice linger make drinking this whiskey a most pleasant experience from the very first moment. It's good to see Glenmorangie deliver solid choices two years in a row in their Private Edition.
