Malmsey Madeira Casks Finish.

My whisky collection Testing / Tasting
(87 points)

Article

A few days ago, Glenmorangie Bacalta had its premiere. This is the eighth edition of the series of Private Collection. This time we have a classic maturation in Bourbon barrels and then finish in Malmsey Madeira wine casks. Traditionally, the whisky is bottled at 46% and unchillfiltered.
It just happens that I have such a bottle, so there is nothing else to open it and look inside.

N: cooked apples, baked apples, then slightly mineral, after a while fruits returned with apricot, peach and tangerine, pretty sweet, but not overly, you should leave the whisky for a while in the glass to let it breathe, over time the smell got rounded and developed, it reached more fruits to honey, toffee and a touch of vanilla;

T: nice, even oily, with a slight tingling on a tongue, sweet, here we also have no shortage of boiled and baked apples, peaches, dried apricots, grapefruits, later a delicate bitterness with ginger, from time to time you can feel a mint with chocolate;

F: long with grapefruit and traces of bitterness.

Score: 87.

These editions of Glenmorangie’s Private Collection are very pleasant and generally keep an equal level. The same is in the case of Bacalta, in which the smell and taste correspond to one another and coincide nicely. I like it a bit more than last year’s Milsean.

    Gorgeous photography and a fine description Lukasz. Do you think the Malmsey influence is strong? And I agree all of these are/were fun. But for me Sonnalta was poetry in a glass!!

      Hi El.
      I think Mamsey gave it some fruity sweetness and accents of baked/boiled apples, maybe some chocolate also. But that is just my little opinion. Sonnalta might been the best so far.

    Dla mnie zbyt ostra whisky. Spodziewalem się czegos slodkiego i delikatnego jak nectar d’or a tutaj mocne zzczypanie języka pieprznosc. Nie smakowalo mi. Mysle ze milsean bedzie tym co lubie ale to zostawie na jutro.

      W takim razie Milean powinien bardziej odpowiadać Twoim oczekiwaniom, choć i tam lekkie szczypanie występuje. Podziel się proszę wrażeniami po degustacji. Pozdrowienia.

        A proszę bardzo. Bardzo dobra deserowa. Pierwszy kontakt ze zmysłem zapachu był wspomnieniem z dzieciństwa. Czułem żelki miśki owocowe. Jakieś akcenty miodu wanilii. W smaku podobnie z lekkim szczypaniem które przy drugim łyczku było już bardzo zniwelowane. Dla miłośników słodyczy. Baaaardzo polecam
