Glenmorangie Tùsail Private Edition Single Malt Scotch Whisky
Aged in specially selected casks, this whisky is the sixth release in Glenmorangie's private edition collection.
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 Tùsail Single Malt Whisky is the only sixth expression in Glenmorangie’s Private Edition collection (tùsail means original in Scottish Gaelic). The whisky is crafted from Maris Otter barley, a type of winter barley that is bred specially to brew whisky and recognized for its ability to impart rich, rustic flavors. Once the barley was selected, it was mashed and fermented with water sourced from the Tarlogie Spring. The water produced from the spring, which spends nearly a century underground being filtered through layers of limestone before it is extracted, is unusually rich in minerals. In the 1980’s, when development in the area threatened the spring’s water quality, Glenmorangie purchased 600 acres of land around and including the spring, in order to ensure consistent water quality and adequate supply. After the barley has been fermented, the wash is twice distilled through Glenmorangie’s copper-pot stills by a team of 16 distillers known as the Sixteen Men of Tain. Glenmorangie’s 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. Following distillation, Glenmorangie Tùsail was matured in specially selected casks. It has an aroma of buttered biscuits, toffee and earthy minerals that give way to notes of brown sugar, barley, cinnamon, maple syrup and molasses on the palate. The finish lingers, and has hints of roasted nuts and butterscotch. We have only a handful of bottles available, so pick one up today!
