Color
Mahogany
Nose

Quite sweet and floral, marked more by the classic Glenmorangie character of tinned peaches, red apples and toffee. There’s some vanilla and raisin, as well as hints of fresh oak shavings. Underneath there are light nutty notes (cashews, almonds) with a faint roasted edge.

Taste

Medium bodied, still a bit of sweetness but more of the typical tangy nature of an Amontillado. More nutty notes as well (walnuts, chestnuts), including some smoky bitterness and zesty citrus. Seville oranges. There’s also a slightly rough alcoholic edge, too bad.

Finish
Not too long, spicy with some bittersweet elements and a drier note in the end.
Comments
A decent dram, interesting to see the influence of the Amontillado. Like Duthac, not entirely great though.

Heute im Duty Free zum Probieren. Da sage ich nicht nein ...

Der riecht auf Anhieb herrlich frisch, fruchtig, der Sherry des Amontillado hat schon was. Aber auch die Eiche und etwas Vanille kommen mir entgegen.

Kräftiger Antritt, oh! das hätte ich nicht erwartet. Fruchtig-würziger Geschmack. Der wirkt alt, rund, weich.

Klasse!

the sherry is just right; not a bomb, but modestly present.

The marketing story is hilarious but it worked on us as we quite had some fun with it. This is a good sherry whisky. Dark fruits, a spicy sweetness and well balanced. Good whisky for the money, nice.

Glenmorangie The Tayne (old spelling for Tain) is the latest addition to the Legends bottling series, a collection of single malts exclusive to Travel Retail. This expression was inspired by the legend of a Spanish Galleon which sunk in the Dornoch Firth (than known as the Firth of Tayne) after it got separated from the Spanish Armada during the England invasion in 1588. In connection with the theme, The Tayne was finished in ex-Amontillado casks.
