In 1738, a brewery was built upon Morangie Farm in the Highlands region of Scotland. A century later, William Matheson acquired the farm and equipped the Morangie brewery with two stills that he purchased second-hand, and renamed the brewery-converted-distillery Glenmorangie.

Glenmorangie Single Malt Scotch Whisky is made using malted barley, which is germinated with water sourced from the Tarlogie Spring. The water produced from the spring, which spends nearly a century underground before it is extracted, is unusually rich in minerals. (In the 1980s, when development in the area threatened the spring's water quality, the distillery purchased 600 acres of land around and including the spring, in order to ensure consistent water quality and adequate supply.)

After germination, the grains are mashed and fermented before being twice distilled through Glenmorangie's copper-pot stills. The stills are equipped with relatively small boiler pots, which increases the exposure of the whisky to the copper, resulting in a more pure flavor. In addition, the stills are nearly seventeen feet tall — the tallest of any distillery in Scotland — and as a result, produce a lighter, more refined whisky.

This single malt is the eighth release in Glenmorangie’s “multi-award-winning and always intriguing” Private Edition. Bacalta (Scots Gaelic for “baked”) is inspired by the essence of the island of Madeira, a balmy Portuguese archipelago in the north Atlantic Ocean, southwest of Portugal.

“This sun-soaked single malt delivers wonderfully warm layers of sweetness, brimming with baked fruits and honeyed tones.” The spirit is crafted from Glenmorangie single malt which is initially matured in ex-bourbon casks. The whiskey is then secondary maturated in bespoke, sunbaked, former Malmsey Madeira casks. Madeira is famously one of the sweetest and most prized of the Madeira wines. Bottled at 46% ABV.

Fragrant, honeyed and sweet on the nose, with ripe apricots, mead-like, and a curious flinty note, followed by sweet white chocolate. On the palate is an initial burst of mint toffee, with baked fruits such as caramelized oranges, honeycomb, almonds and dates. The finish is rich, with a syrupy aftertaste, followed by more caramelized citrus and pears, creamy fudge, and an intriguing mentholic sensation in the background.
