The Glenmorangie Legends are a unique collection of single malt whiskies, each expression carefully crafted by Dr Bill Lumsden to capture the spirit of the individual tales.
The Tayne Expression honours a sunken Spanish Galleon which, in 1588, is believed to have been torn to pieces by the sea and dragged into the depths close by the site of Glenmorangie Distillery. Legend has it, the remains of the galleon remain hidden to this day in the depths beneath.
To reflect the ultimate resting place of this lost ship, Dr Lumsden carefully selected Amontillado sherry casks to mature this whisky.
The result is a rich, mahogany whisky showcasing a unique harmony of deep, spicy sherry cask notes, unusually fragrant floral top notes of rose petals and roast chestnuts with a warming texture leading in sweet toffee flavours.
Muscovado sugar, tropical fruits, peaches, mango and orange, finishing with a long, gentle nuttiness like Brazil nuts embedded in toffee.
