Finally Glenmorangie Duthac is available in India, nearly six months after its international launch. Moët Hennessy is celebrating stories from the area and Glenmorangie Duthac comes with the tag line ‘Begin your journey through Glenmorangie’s Legends, a new Travel Retail Collection’.
Glenmorangie Duthac, the first release in the Legends Collection, is inspired by King James IV’s yearly pilgrimage to the saint’s shrine in Tain where the King often sought peace ahead of foreboding times. St Duthac’s shrine held a particular importance for the King of Scots, who felt such a personal connection with the saint that he made a six-week round trip to Tain each year for up to 20 years. The final leg of James IV’s journey to St Duthac’s shrine, through the Highlands and across the Cromarty Firth, became so renowned, it is still known as The King’s Route.
Glenmorangie’s new Legends Collection is an extension of its Glenmorangie single malt Scotch whisky brand. Dr Bill Lumsden, Director of Distilling and Whisky Creation, said: “Glenmorangie Duthac honours the pilgrimage of King James IV, who felt such an affinity for Tain and its patron saint – St Duthac. The paradox of flavours will take malt whisky enthusiasts on a journey of the senses through rich, dark notes of milk chocolate, toffee, Brazil nuts and spice, into the delicate sweetness of vanilla, apricots in cream and marzipan. Part-finished in casks which contained Pedro Ximénez – the King of Sherries – and in charred virgin oak, Glenmorangie Duthac provides a majestic balance of bold sweetness and intense spice.”
It will be available at travel retail stories in India from December 2015 at USD 90.
Tasting Notes: Glenmorangie Duthac is chill filtered and bottled at 43% ABV. Glenmorangie Duthac is a deep bronze single malt, juxtaposing rich, dark, notes of milk chocolate, toffee, Brazil nuts, and gentle spice with the delicate sweetness of vanilla, apricots in cream and marzipan. It combines a classic Glenmorangie backbone with a refined balance between bold sweetness from the Pedro Ximénez casks and intense spice from the charred, virgin oak.
The Legends Collection: The Glenmorangie Distillery is located in a landscape rich in heritage and legend. Its stories have inspired a collection of Glenmorangie single malt whiskies, each designed to capture a different tale. Glenmorangie Duthac is the first in the series, available globally in travel retail.
