Glenmorangie has released its eighth annual Private Edition range. Gaelic for ‘baked’, Bacalta is the first Glenmorangie expression finished entirely in sun-baked Malmsey Madeira casks.

The inspiration for this limited-edition came more than 20 years ago with the release of Glenmorangie Madeira Finish, the world’s first whisky extra-matured in Madeira casks, according to Moët Hennessey.

American oak casks were heavily toasted then seasoned with Malmsey wine – the sweetest Madeira – and baked under the sun.

Emptied, shipped to Scotland and filled with Glenmorangie spirit already matured in ex-bourbon barrels, the Malmsey casks lend “complex layers of sweetness” to Glenmorangie Bacalta.

The brand’s Bill Lumsden said: “For years I had longed to create the best Madeira-finished whisky possible. Realising that ambition took time and dedication, as every step of extra-maturation was tailored to our specifications – rather like haute couture.”
