Glenmorangie A Tale Of Tokyo Single Malt Whisky – Highland Scotland
A TALE of TOKYO by Glenmorangie 46% ABV
Aged in Mizunara, Bourbon and Sherry casks
A whisky born of an obsession, Dr Bill’s obsession for the culture, fashion and food of Japan. The contradictory and multi-faceted nature of Tokyo inspired Dr Bill to reflect it into a whisky. After a decade of searching, Dr Bill finally managed to source some casks from one of Japan’s most sought after trees – Mizunara Oak. The result is a whisky designed to bottle some of the wonders of Tokyo multi-faceted, contradictory and always surprising! Welcome to Dr Bill’s “Tale of Tokyo”.
Dr Bill: “This liquid is crazy. Its flavour notes are insane, dissonant and impenetrable.”
Colour: reddish bronze colour 'like the rising sun'.
Aroma: pungent and herbal, with hints of incense and toffee, along with a curious herbal top-note, like saddle-soap or beeswax, followed by wood resin and a touch of cedar wood.
Taste: a peppery mouthfeel leads into the flavour of chewy oak, fennel or vetiver root, ground white pepper, tangy oranges, bitter cherries, almond and wood resin.
