• In 1995, Glenmorangie released the world’s first Single Malt Whisky extra-matured in Madeira casks.
• Dr. Bill Lumsden, the Director of Whisky Creation and Distilling, has long held an ambition to revisit this extra-maturation and to bring to it the expertise gained through the years from our pioneering work in cask management.
• For Bacalta, Glenmorangie had bespoke casks created, long-seasoned with Malmsey Madeira wine then baked under the sun. Emptied, shipped to Scotland and filled with specially selected spirit - already matured in ex-Bourbon barrels - the Malmsey casks lend layers of sun-baked sweetness to Glenmorangie Bacalta.
• The result: Glenmorangie Bacalta, an expression with an overall sweetness with notes of mint toffee, baked fruits, honeycomb, almonds and dates.
Light gold. Fragrant, honeyed and sweet. Ripe apricots, mead-like, and a minerally note, followed by sweet white chocolate. An initial burst of mint toffee, with baked fruits such as caramelized oranges and apricots, strong honeycomb notes, almonds and dates. A rich, syrupy after-taste, with more caramelized citrus and pears, some creamy fudge, but always an intriguing menthol sensation.
