Spice up your winter whisky game with this limited edition single malt scotch.
Reaching for warm flannel shirting and suiting is a given during the winter months, and Glenmorangie just launched a solid single malt scotch to warm your soul and body even more this season. The aptly named A Tale of Winter conjures up visions of snowy nights, roaring fires, perhaps an expertly crafted cardigan and of course, a dram of your new favorite whisky.
Winter’s themes are abundant every step of the way with this new whisky, with flavor notes of Brazil-nut toffee, cocoa and cinnamon (not unlike a more adult version of the hot cocoa you enjoyed as a child, and perhaps still do).
Glenmorangie’s whisky belongs on your bar cart for holiday gatherings and quiet evenings at home as you make new seasonal memories. Inspired by the sensation of being snowed in at home surrounded by the comforts of winter, Glenmorangie finished the 13-year Highland single malt in Sicilian Marsala wine casks.
Consider it the perfect gift for your holiday hosts, too, and a premium one, at that. A Tale of Winter’s suggested retail price is $99.99, complete with vibrant seasonal packaging as colorful as a frosted Christmas cookie.
On that note, Glenmorangie notes that even the finish of this whisky fits right in with winter, touching on ginger, clove and cinnamon. While any great whisky worth its salt can be enjoyed neat or with a customary large ice cube, the distillery also recommends trying your hand at a Winter Apple Toddy.
The recipe incorporates pressed apple juice, lemon juice and dessert honey, brought to a low-heat simmer before being combined with the whisky itself, then garnished with a cinnamon stick and an orange wheel.
Glenmorangie can also be enjoyed in a traditional Old Fashioned, but we say it’s worth leaning into the season with a fitting, hot drink best imbibed on a frigid winter’s night, or else, a wee dram enjoyed neat. Add in some cherished company of your own, and we’d call that a recipe for a successful holiday affair.
