Glenmorangie Bacalta Reviews
Tasting Notes by The Whisky Exchange
Nose: Fragrant, honeyed and sweet, with ripe apricots, honey and sweet white chocolate.
Palate: Mint toffee, caramelised oranges and baked apricot lead to honeycomb, almonds and dates.
Finish: Rich and syrupy, with caramelised citrus and pears fading to fudge and mint.
Producer's Tasting Notes
Colour: Light gold.
Nose: Fragrant, honeyed and sweet. Some ripe apricots, mead-like, and a curious minerally/flinty note, followed by some sweet white chocolate.
Taste: An initial burst of mint toffee, with baked fruits such as caramelised oranges and apricots, lots of honeycomb, almonds and dates.
Finish: A rich, syrupy aftertaste, with more caramelised citrus and pears, some creamy fudge, but always an intriguing mentholic/eucalyptus sensation in the background.
Tasting notes by Stuart Peskett
Nose: Rich, sweet notes of buttered toast and popcorn, along with brioche and milk chocolate, then fruitier notes of cherry, strawberry and dried fruit.
Palate: Spicier on the palate, with cinnamon, clove and violets. Roasted almonds, more milk chocolate and candied orange arrive, along with hints of red fruits. A drop of water brings out more fruity and floral notes.
Finish: The rich spiciness lingers.
Comment: Much richer than The Original, Bacalta ramps up the toasty spiciness. The 46% ABV is another plus, giving a satisfying mouthfeel.

Wonderful spice, with great fruit and honey. The cask influence is superb. Highly recommended.
Lovely apricot, almond and honey flavors. This one is not to be missed.
