One of our favorite Single Malts ever aged in ex-Bourbon barrels and rare Tokaji Wine for a rich, cake-like profile.

Located near Tain on the east coast of the northern Highlands, the Glenmorangie Distillery was founded in 1843 when the Matheson brothers converted the Morangie farm into a distillery by the sea. At a full twenty-six feet in height, the stills are the tallest in Scotland — ensuring that only the lightest vapors make it to the top and resulting in a smooth, fresh, and elegant range of fine Single Malt Whiskies. Now owned by LVMH, Glenmorangie is THE best selling Single Malt Whisky in Scotland and the rest of the UK, and one of our personal favorites.

Glenmorangie is one of our favorite distilleries in Scotland. We have stories to tell, but those are best left for another time. Anyway… Glenmorangie A Tale of Cake is still the same Glenmorangie that we all know and love — same barley, same yeast, same amazingly tall stills. And like all special Glenmorangie releases this cake-y Single Malt is aged first in ex-Bourbon casks. But then it’s transferred into rare Tokaji Wine casks from Hungary. This Wine is famous for its sweet, raisiny character. And the influence of the barley, the Bourbon, and the Tokaji on the Single Malt reminded Dr. Bill Lumsden — Director of Whisky Creation — of upside down cake. And EVERYONE loves cake… especially when it’s bottled at a perfect 46% ABV.

Smartass Corner:
Tokaji or Tokay Wines come from a Wine-growing region that spans eastern Hungary and Slovakia. They are all sweet and range from dry to Grappa-like must versions. The grapes have been infected with "noble rot," the beneficial Botrytis fungus that "raisins" ripe grapes, giving the Wine a sweet, Sherry-like quality.

Ratings & Reviews
Anthony
Anthony,
Loved this, very smooth and easy to drink. Recommend putting the bottle in the freezer, very refreshing
 
Samantha
Samantha,
Served with my mother's figgy pudding on Christmas Eve. Pineapple cake really shines through (perhaps more so due to the holly sprig igniting in the pudding)!
 
James
James,
Would you believe it actually smells like cake batter? Caramel/vanilla taste with baking spices and a pleasant sweetness. Goes down easy.
 
Jason
Jason,
Really nice, light, smooth dram. A little hint of sweet, but not overpowering. Smooth finish.

guest,
Nose reminded me of lemon pound cake. Initial taste was honey and vanilla, got some citrus zest too. Finish had a lot of pineapple. Coats your mouth quite well. Pretty interesting!
 
Lee
Lee,
smells like cake, a bit of a dry finish like cake, pretty good..
 
Stephen
Stephen,
Meh. I purchased this with high anticipation of the cake aspect. Didn't get cake at all. Decent scotch, but not really different than other Glenmorangie offerings (i.e. Lasanta) at half the price.
