Glenmorangie, Ealanta (Scotland)
Glenmorangie Ealanta is the fourth annual release in the brand’s Private Edition range, which has included Sonnalta, Finealta and Artein. ‘Ealanta’ is Scots Gaelic for 'skilled and ingenious', and this expression has been matured for 19 years in heavily-toasted virgin American white oak casks. The nose offers milk chocolate, cream soda, pineapple and honey, while the palate is notably smooth, with toffee, cloves, freshly-planed timber and a squeeze of orange. The finish is lengthy, with citrus fruits and spicy oak. 46.0% ABV, 70cl, £70.00, specialist whisky merchants.
