Tap into the winter spirit with Glenmorangie’s limited edition single malt Scotch whisky A Tale of Winter
Whisky lovers are no stranger to Glenmorangie, famous for their incredibly smooth, delicate and complex single malt Scotch whiskies. Presented in a bottle with an embossed knitted sweater look and finished in Marsala wine casks from Sicily, the whisky giant is back with a limited-edition 13-year-old single malt crafted by the brand’s Director of Whisky Creation, Dr Bill Lumsden.
A winter special, the vibrant concoction named A Tale of Winter captures the magical feeling of being cosied up while the outside world is blanketed in snow and is guaranteed to give you a truly delectable experience with its diverse array of flavours inspired by all things winter.
Great as a standalone drink, this amber coloured single malt bottled at 46% ABV rewards with an explosion of bright, colourful flavours, beginning with a curious top note of fruit, lavender honey and sweet rose that then leads into a burst of sweet and nutty flavours including cocoa dust, red pepper, brazil nut toffee and sweet barley malt. Finishing with a spicy aftertaste of swirls of cinnamon, ginger and clove, each sip will feel like a big, warm hug.
Also a great base for a series of wintry cocktails, pair this rich and fragrant whisky with Demerara sugar and a couple dashes of Angostura bitter for a glass of Glenmorangie style Old Fashioned, or with apple and lemon juice, and honey to taste for a twist on the winter favourite – Winter Apple Toddy.
Truly winter in a bottle, this radiant creation is an irresistible addition to the Christmas dinner table and the perfect gift for all your friends and loved ones, or just for yourself as you sit back and take in the winter lights!
