Launched in 2019 as part of a trio of travel retail releases that included Elementa and Accord, The Tribute was created to celebrate the distillery’s historic use of peat to dry its barley. The release is lightly peated and matured in American oak ex-bourbon casks. Bottled at 43%. (Bottle size 1 litre)
Nose: Fresh flowers entwine with gentle smoke, vanilla and a distinctive mossy scent. Then charred notes come to the fore, with whispers of lemon and orange.
Palate: Smooth on the palate, with the sweetness of vanilla cream, pears, almonds and star anise, set against fennel, grapefruit and salted fudge.
Finish: A subtle smokiness fades into classic Glenmorangie notes of citrus, vanilla and toffee.
