Tasting Glenmorangie Duthac (Travel Retail)

Glenmorangie Duthac weirdly came into existence without any PR campaign, or anything by Glenmorangie, which is rather odd. Usualy  there’s quite a big fuss when a new expression comes out in the LVMH group. I first heard about it from a blog reader who asked me if I had heard about it (he works in the TLV duty free), and …

Glenmorangie Dornoch [Travel Retail] – Review

The new Glenmorangie ‘Tusail’ is just around the corner (released already, and I shall review it shortly), but prior to that Glenmorangie released another Travel retail only expression by the name of “Dornoch”. It’s not surprising this is a NAS expression. Why Dornoch?
Glenmorangie is Gaelic for ‘the glen of tranquility’ and the Dornoch expression was inspired by the distillery’s peaceful …

The new Glenmorangie Taghta – Review

A few weeks ago Glenmorangie released the Taghta (Scots Gaelic for ‘The Chosen One’), which is considered (according to Glenmorangie) to be “the world’s first crowd-sourced whisky”. I guess you would have to be living on the moon to not have heard about this whisky at some point as in the  the past 18 months whisky enthusiasts from more than …

Tasting Glenmorangie Companta

Finally I managed to sit down and write notes about this much spoken about and discussed dram. (This time not out laziness, but other reasons )  I won’t bore you with the details and PR blah blah, you can read that in one of my earlier posts (here) .
There was some debate about whether Companta really means “friendship” (like Cairdeas is …

Just like with the previous gathering, plenty of emails, phone calls, tweets and dates moving around were involved until we all were content with …
