Glenmorangie Taghta, 46%

Price: $99 Issue: Spring 2015 Reviewer: Gavin Smith

Taghta—Gaelic for “Chosen One”—is the result of Glenmorangie's innovative Cask Masters program, in which crowd-sourcing strongly influenced the final release. It is non-chill filtered and has been finished in manzanilla sherry casks. Fragrant, slightly salty, fruity sherry notes, sweet spices on the nose. New leather and lots of spice on the palate, with olives, rock salt, and a suggestion of red wine. Medium in length, drying, with licorice and black pepper. (12,000 bottles)£65
