About This Competition

If there was an award for prettiest packaging, this brow-raiser from Glenmorangie would certainly be on the shortlist, if not an outright winner for the year 2020. At the very least, I doubt many folk have ever come across a more colourful presentation. Yes, friends, I have been searching for the perfect occasion to put this bottle up and am glad to say it fits perfectly with our Atypical August theme. Weird concept – check; LSD inspired imagery – check; Unorthodox cask finish – check.

The story goes thus – Dr Bill Lumsden, the master distiller; himself a rather quirky chemist by training, was reminiscing about his most precious memories and they all seemed to involve cake. So he set out to recreate the experience of cake in whisky. It seems that maturation in Tokaji dessert wine casks was the magic formula. Now, this is in no way the first time these Hungarian wine casks have been employed to age whisky, but it is quite uncommon and this is probably the first major global whisky release to make use of ex-Tokaji casks.

Unsurprisingly, this whisky is sweet and is delightfully enjoyable with some cake. This multi-layered dram, with a burst of passion fruit, peach, pear, mango. More savoury notes like baking bread, gentle sappy oak and a curious, flinty minerality emerge. This is then followed by classic Glenmorangie notes like honeycomb, vanilla and almond, with a hint of milk chocolate. Several reviewers have noted that this does actually smell like freshly baked cake!

Clearly benefiting from lockdown home-drinking & the novelty of it all, this limited edition release disappeared off the shelves in about two months. If you tried it, liked it, and wouldn’t mind a spare or replacement, you should enter this competition. If you want to introduce whisky to new drinkers, this is an excellent starter dram and you should enter. If you just want to draw attention to your drinks cabinet then you should definitely enter.
