Part of the Legends collection, a travel retail range, The Tayne honours the legend that just offshore from the Glenmorangie distillery is the shipwreck of a 16th Century Spanish Galleon. Once loaded with treasure, it is one of many ships lost when the Spanish Armada fled from the English navy round the Scottish coast. The whisky is finished in Amontillado sherry casks. Bottled at 43%.
Nose: Toffee, sweet apricots, and some nuttiness along with muscovado sugar, aromatic coffee and chocolate coated raisins.
Palate: An oily warming texture leads into rich, sweet flavours of toffee, brown sugar, tropical fruits (peaches, mango and orange) and a gentle nuttiness.
Finish: A long, spicy finish, with bitter-sweet citrus and dried fruits.
