Customer Rating
A unique whisky from Glenmorangie – everything about The Taghta was designed by consumers: the finishing cask, the name and the label design. Taghta (pronounced tuh-tah) is Scots Gaelic for 'chosen' and the whisky was finished in ex-Manzanilla casks.

Tasting Notes

  • Tasting Notes by The Whisky Exchange

    Nose: Salted nuts, toffee, linseed oil touches, dried fruit, dried orange peel and a touch of sweet balsamic.

    Palate: Oily and rich, with caramelised orange and lemon, sultanas, brown sugar and nuts.

    Finish: Long, with toffee, caramel, chocolate and dates.

  • Producer's Tasting Notes

    Aroma: Curiously nutty and salty at full strength, reminding you of brazil nuts embedded in toffee, hints of linseed oil, and some savoury cured ham. A splash of water opens up the whisky, bringing into play a burst of aged balsamic vinegar, dried fruits, tangy-orange, and a gentle reminder of Christmas incense and spice.

    Taste: The texture is oily and viscous, with a delicious primary flavour of caramelised orange and lemon, plump sultanas, a hint of brown sugar, but then a wave of salty, briny notes – olives, salted cashew nuts and some nice, toasty oak flavours, like walnut and leather.

    Finish: The long aftertaste is rich, mellow and soothing, with flavours of toffee, caramel, chocolate and dates.
