From Glenmorangie Whisky comes a limited edition expression called A Tale of Winter. Like the cozy comfort of a colorful winter sweater, this whisky’s bursts of bright, vivid flavor will delight your senses. The experience begins with light flurries of fruit and honey, building to torrents of cocoa dust, flakes of red pepper and chunks of brazil nut toffee. It culminates in a feels-like-forever finish that swirls with cinnamon, ginger and clove.
And this bottle of premium whisky is the perfect base for a fun Winter Apple Toddy.
