Glenmorangie Bacalta

From the mind of head distiller, Dr. Bill Lumsden, comes a new Glenmorangie scotch inspired by the sun, Bacalta. Developed in Lumsden's workplace, which is nicknamed the Cabinet of Curiosities, Bacalta recalls their Madeira wood-finished whiskies and reintroduces that idea with custom designed staves and ex-bourbon cask finishing to get that special flavor. As for tasting notes, the whisky is described to have a nose of apricots, a taste of profile of honey, mint toffee, and citrusy almonds, and a sweet finish of fudge and caramelized fruits.
