Glenmorangie The Taghta 2013 (70cl, 46%)

An unusual offering from Glenmorangie, the Taghta, pronounced [Tuh-tah] is the first official 'crowd-sourced' whisky. The characteristics of the blend were decided upon by Glenmorangie's 'Cask Masters,' hence its name which means 'chosen' in Gaelic.

It was matured in ex-bourbon wood before being finished in Manzanilla casks and bottled in 2013.

The Taghta from Glenmorangie is a 'crowd-sourced' whisky, in that many of its characteristics were decided by the Cask Masters, Glenmorangie's loyal fans - an exciting concept which has resulted in this limited edition expression. The Taghta is a non-chill filtered single malt which has received a finishing period in ex-Manzanilla casks. It has been bottled at 46% ABV and given a rather apt title, as "Taghta", is Scottish Gaelic for "Chosen".

Despite being owned by blenders, MacDonald & Muir, for most of the 20th century, Glenmorangie had an early focus on bottling its single malt. Some records show that its single malt was being sold as early as the late 19th century. This became the distillery's main output in 1959, and with the unique flavours derived from Scotland's tallest stills, Glenmorangie is now one of the world's biggest selling malts. As a result, the distillery portfolio over the years has been extensive, and little has been spared for independent bottlers. Pioneers of cask finishes, the distillery has never shied away from experimentation, and under the guiding hand of Maestro Dr Bill Lumsden they continue to release a variety of expressions to keep "The Sixteen Men of Tain" rushed off their feet.
