Glenmorangie A Tale of Tokyo Single Malt Whisky
Glenmorangie's A Tale of Tokyo is the fourth release in the 'Tale of' series, a Limited Edition Release, inspired by Dr. Bill Lumsden’s (director of whisky creation for Glenmorangie) travels to Japan and a desire to experiment with rare Mizunara oak casks. Dr. Bill Lumsden united Glenmorangie part aged in Mizunara oak with whisky that spent time in both sherry and bourbon casks, the result being a unique, perfectly balanced Single Malt.
The artwork on the bottle and packaging are the result of a collaboration with celebrated Japanese artist, Yamaguchi Akira, an intricate perspective of the city's contrasts and layers of history and culture.
Nose: Powerfully herbal, with hints of toffee contrasted by incense and saddle-soap, followed by a resinous note and a touch of cedar wood.
Taste: A peppery mouthfeel leads into notes of tangy oranges and bitter cherries alongside fennel and chewy oak.
Finish: Long and gently nutty, with hints of almond, mandarin, ground white pepper and more wood resin.
