- A Tale of Cake
Excellent complex dram
While I wasn’t a huge fan of A Tale of Cake, I am a gigantic fan of Glenmorangie, so I snatched-up the first A Tale of Winter that I came across. It opens with buttery caramel, honey, and toffee, followed by vanilla, light apricots, and peppery spice. The mouthfeel is thick and creamy, almost like an eggnog. The finish is very long with strong zest – like orange zest, without the orange, but with butterscotch and apricot – like a butterscotch/apricot citrus zest. If you like bitter-sweet citrus, this one’s for you. Chalk-up another complex dram for Glenmorangie. Drink slow, drink long, drink a variety, drink often.
