Glenmorangie Duthac single malt whisky reviewGlenmorangie Duthac single malt whisky comes from the distillery with tallest stills in Scotland. It was originally the first release in their Travel Retail Legends collection, which was expanded outside travel retail markets.

Matured in Pedro Ximénez Sherry and virgin oak casks, this whisky is an interesting marriage of two different type of casks. The name of this single malt comes from Saint Duthac, who is the patron saint of Tain in Scotland and rests at the centre of the Royal Burgh of Tain.

This was just a Fast Getaway

For me, Glenmorangie Duthac was part of a local whisky tasting here in Finland. Because this dram didn’t move my radar too much, I naturally paid more interest to other drams involved. That’s why my tasting notes are quite short and don’t offer much insight to this single malt. Glenmorangie Duthac probably should earn more column space but this time, it was just a Fast Getaway from ordinary life. Quite typical Glenmorangie dram, I must say…

You can read my fast and short tasting notes below:

Matured in:
Ex-Sherry and Virgin Oak casks
Colour: Golden amber
Nose: Oak and tannins, grapes and hoppy fruits.
Taste: Sweet and mellow, bit dark and fruity. Herbs and spices.
Finish: Medium length, crispy and sweet.
Balance: Easy to sip but nothing special, typically mellow sweet Glenmorangie yet with a bit crispy twist.
