Glenmorangie Tarlogan Travel Retail Exclusive

15th April 2016

Glenmorangie launch Tarlogan, the final release in the travel retail exclusive Legends series.

Glenmorangie TarloganGlenmorangie Tarlogan is the third and I believe final release in the Glenmorangie travel retail exclusive Legends series, it follows the Glenmorangie Duthac and the more recently released Glenmorangie Tayne.

Like its two predecessors in the Legends series the new Glenmorangie Tarlogan is a No Age Statement expression, it takes its name from from the Pictish King Tarlogan who is said to be the namesake of Glenmorangie's precious water source, the Tarlogie Springs.

The travel retail exclusive bottling was matured in a combination of American ex-bourbon and virgin oak casks and it was bottled at 43% ABV.

Similar to the previous releases in the Legends series it will initially be available from UK airport World Duty Free stores, aka World of Whiskies from April 2016. It will then be rolled out to other countries.

Being the most expensive release in the series at 79.99 for a 70cl bottle I would hope that the new Glenmorangie Tarlogan at least matches the quality of the Glenmorangie Duthac and Tayne, I will update you if/when I taste it meanwhile the official tasting note is below.

If you have no plans to travel in the near future don't worry you will find Glenmorangie's current range of single malt whisky available from specialist online whisky shops such as The Whisky Exchange

Glenmorangie Tarlogan Tasting Note

Producer's Tasting Notes:

Nose: At full strength, pungent, earthy and sweet with a very prevalent aroma of sweet, creamy butterscotch and vanilla, followed by soft, malty biscuity flavours. Some gentle, fresh oak chips and soft fruits, like apricot and honeydew melon.

Taste: A splash of water releases a combination of creamy vanilla and some floral notes, such as narcissus or verbena, but the most defining note is the constant creamy vanilla and coconut. A soft, silky texture leads into a symphony of a sweet dessert like notes, such as vanilla custard, pears, banoffee pie, pineapple and a gentle citrus note.

Finish: Finally, the aftertaste once again reminds drinkers that this is a Glenmorangie, with vanilla, apricots in cream and some almond marzipan.
