Tasting Notes

Following the smashing success of last year's one-off Tale of Cake, Tale of Winter expands on the dessert theme with a thirteen year single malt that has been aged in Marsala Wine casks from Siciliy. There are notes of tropical fruits, fresh panetone, creamy salted butter with toasted malt and layers of baking spice. A beautiful whisky that walks a tight rope of hedonistic bounty. Available in limited quantities.

Staff Pick Notes

Is it really possible to capture the cozy sweater, snuggled in a blanket by a warm fireplace feeling of winter in liquid? Glenmorangie’s Tale of Winter parlays the scene quite well.

If this sounds like the dram for you this season, snap it up before the snow melts. Just like winter, this limited bottling won’t last forever.
