Glenmorangie "Bacalta" Private Edition Highland Single Malt Scotch Whisky (750ml)

SKU #1293781 91 points Whisky Advocate

 The 8th Private Edition release. This one is finished in sun-baked casks which previously contained Malmsey Madeira. A predominantly sweet and fruity whisky, with caramel, honeyed almonds, peaches in syrup, and orange scone. Soft, soothing finish. Delicious! (John Hansell, Spring 2017)

K&L Notes

The eight release in the award winning Private Edition series, which are created to showcase the depth and versatility of the Glenmorangie line. Each Private Edition is highly limited and are designed to showcase Glenmorangie's - and their illustrious head of whisky creation Dr Bill Lumsden - most special and successful experiments. The Bacalta, meaning "baked" in Gaelic, is truly a product of solar power. First spending many years in bourbon casks, before being transferred to custom casks which once held Malsmey Madeira, the great sunsoaked wine of that special archipelago off the north African coast. The result is ultra honeyed and brimming with ripe stone fruits, candied citrus, and rich creamy fudge. These always sell out, so grab it while you can.

The latest in Scotch innovation from Glenmorangie is Madeira-cask aged, in casks that they sourced which were filled with Malmsey Madeira and then seasoned in the sun for two years themselves. Talk about quality control! This is beautiful whisky, both in appearance and flavor profile. At the base, there is a viscous creamy maltiness with dried apricots, almonds and honeycomb flavors in the background. The finish is fresh and fruity, and rounds out the richness perfectly. Very fun bottle of whisky!
