Glenmorangie Duthac Kicks Off New Travel Retail Whisky Line

Glenmorangie DuthacThe town of Tain in Scotland once held particular importance to King James IV, who made a yearly pilgrimage there to seek “peace ahead of foreboding times” at a saint’s shrine. This saint, Duthac, now has a new travel retail whisky named after him from Glenmorangie, a distillery in the same town.

Glenmorangie Duthac, the first release in the Legends Collection, is bottled at 43% ABV and priced at €75 ($85 USD) per one liter bottle. It is a non-age statement Scotch that was part finished in ex-Pedro Ximénez sherry casks and in charred virgin oak.

Official tasting notes for this whisky are below, courtesy of the distillery.

Aroma: Seductive aromas of pear, toffee apple, Brazil nuts in toffee, with an underlying spicy note, some toasty oak. With a splash of water, some creamy vanilla fudge is encountered, along with the classic Sherry cask note of linseed oil.

Taste: Mouth-filling flavours of milk chocolate, toffee, Brazil nuts, leather and some aniseed. The spiciness is definite, but gentle, with hints of ginger and clove.

Finish: The aftertaste once again reminds drinkers that this is a Glenmorangie, with vanilla, apricots in cream and some almond marzipan.
