Glenmorangie Taghta Single Malt Scotch Whisky
Matured in traditional oak and ex-manzanilla sherry casks, this whisky is the world’s first crowd-sourced whisky.
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 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 1980’s, 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. Glenmorangie Taghta Single Malt Whisky is the world’s first crowd-sourced whisky — the whisky was chosen for release by lucky whisky enthusiasts around the world, who were given the opportunity to sample numerous options. Taghta (gaelic for “chosen”) was initially matured in traditional oak barrels before being finished for a number of years in casks that were previously used to mature manzanilla sherry.The whisky has an aroma of toffee, butterscotch, cocoa and dried fruits that gives way to notes of toasted oak, black pepper, chilis, olives and toffee on the palate. The finish is earthy, with a hint of salty tang and burnt wood. We have only a handful of bottles. Pick one up today!
