Glenmorangie ALLTA - 10th Private Edition release 700ml
Since 1843, Glenmorangie has challenged the bounds of single malt Scotch whisky, bringing new tastes to the world. This pioneering spirit is never more apparent than in our Private Edition Series. And in 2019, this award-winning series marks its tenth anniversary. To celebrate, we present our first whisky created with the wild yeast that grows on barley in fields near the Distillery, revealing the importance of yeast to the myriad of flavours found in Scotch whisky.
Allta (Scots Gaelic for ‘wild’ and pronounced ‘al-ta’) is an enchantingly rich and fruity single malt. Shedding light on an aspect of distilling for so long overlooked, Glenmorangie Allta is a beacon for the future of Scotch whisky.
Nose: A rounded nose of biscuit tones, light floral note and baking bread, alongside hints of vanilla, raisins and mandarin orange.
Taste: Crisp, citrus textures lead to tastes of butter candy, more creamy vanilla, and orange syrup, with yeast in the background, gentle mint and a suggestion of sweet chilli.
Finish: Long and earthy with hints of bitter sweet orange and peppermint.
