New Limited Release at Lukas Liquor Superstore
Glenmorangie Private Edition 6th Release
Highland Single Malt Scotch Whisky
A Maris Made In Heaven
The 6th release from Glenmorangie’s award-winning Private Edition, Tùsail(pronounced ‘to-SAIL’), is the product of a carefully-selected parcel of Maris Otter barley, floor-malted by hand using traditional techniques, and non-chill-filtered.
A rich winter variety of barley first introduced in 1965, Maris Otter was bred specifically to meet the demand for a high quality brewing malt and recognized for its ability to impart rich, rustic malty flavors. Now used only by a select few who continue, like Glenmorangie, to uphold an ethos of sacrificing yield for quality by using only the finest ingredients, the result is a whisky celebrating the variety’s renowned taste profile.
Nose: Deep earthy, robust aromas of malty, biscuity-tones, with a backbone of nut toffee.
Taste: A rich, rustic profile of nut toffee, sweet barley malt, ginger, cinnamon, and dates in molasses complements more familiar Glenmorangie notes of peaches, oranges and smoked pears.
Finish: Tùsail lingers on with a mouth-coating finish.
