Winning bid: £65.00
Lot number: 081-3768

One of the most recognisable names in Scotch whisky, Glenmorangie were quick out the gates to advertise and promote their Single Malt to a global audience as early as the 1960s. While this undoubtedly played a part in the rather sizeable market share they enjoy today, some credit has to be given to the whisky itself. Their famous stills stand as tall as a fully grown adult giraffe, and as well as giving them ultimate Top Trumps bragging rights, this has the benefit of producing a smoother and more delicate spirit.

Pioneers of cask finishes, the distillery has never shied away from experimentation, and under the guiding hand of Maestro Dr Bill Lumsden they continue to release a variety of expressions to keep "The Sixteen Men of Tain" rushed off their feet.

Bacalta is the eighth release in the annual Private Edition series. Finished in casks which were seasoned with Malmsey Madeira, this is rich and fruity with notes of caramelised apricots, dates, almonds and honeycomb.

Cask Type: Baked Malmsey Madeira

46% ABV / 70cl
