Glenmorangie A Tale of Tokyo Limited Edition: A Harmonious Symphony of Mizunara, Bourbon, and Sherry Elegance

Glenmorangie, renowned for its commitment to innovation and craftsmanship, embarks on a captivating narrative with the release of the limited edition A Tale of Tokyo. This exceptional expression, bottled at 46% ABV on the 20th of July 2023, unfolds a tale of complexity and elegance through its unique maturation journey in Mizunara, Bourbon, and Sherry casks. A harmonious symphony of flavors awaits those fortunate enough to experience this limited edition, a celebration of Glenmorangie's exploration into the artistry of cask influence.

Maturation Mastery:

At the heart of A Tale of Tokyo lies the mastery of cask maturation, a process that defines the character of Glenmorangie's expressions. For this limited edition, the spirit was entrusted to a trio of casks, each contributing its distinct personality to the whisky. Mizunara, known for its rarity and influence, Bourbon, with its vanilla and caramel notes, and Sherry, imparting rich, fruity undertones, collaborated to weave a narrative that captures the essence of Tokyo's diverse and dynamic spirit.

Tasting Notes:

At 46% ABV, A Tale of Tokyo greets the senses with an aromatic dance of vanilla, oak, and a touch of exotic spice from the Mizunara cask. The first sip reveals a symphony of flavors—a delicate balance of Mizunara's sandalwood and coconut, the sweet embrace of Bourbon's caramel and vanilla, and the depth of Sherry's dried fruits and dark chocolate. The interplay of these cask influences creates a whisky that is both intricate and harmonious.

As the whisky lingers on the palate, there's a gradual unveiling of complexity, with whispers of tropical fruits, a hint of nuttiness, and a gentle warmth that lingers in the finish. A Tale of Tokyo invites enthusiasts to savor the layers of flavor, each contributing to the overarching narrative of this limited edition release.

Limited Edition Legacy:

Bottled on the 20th of July 2023, A Tale of Tokyo is not merely a whisky; it is a collector's gem—a limited edition that captures a moment in time. The bottle, adorned with symbolic imagery and a nod to Tokyo's vibrant culture, is a testament to the exclusivity of this expression.

Conclusion:

Glenmorangie A Tale of Tokyo Limited Edition is a journey into the heart of cask influence, a tale that unfolds sip by sip. From Mizunara's exotic allure to Bourbon's comforting embrace and Sherry's rich tapestry, this release is a celebration of the diverse and dynamic spirit of Tokyo. For those fortunate enough to acquire a bottle, it is an invitation to embark on a sensory adventure, where each nuance tells a chapter of the tale that is Glenmorangie's exploration into the world of whisky craftsmanship.

Indeed it doesn't belong here, ha-ha. As I said, just a little 'Japanese' joke. This is a marriage (lovely term) of whiskies aged in mizunara (for a finishing I suppose), bourbon and sherry casks. Just a few years ago, we weren't thinking there would be so many of these 'rare' mizunara oaks that distillers are so fond of these days. Mind you, even Chivas Regal use them; Japan sells. Colour: straw. Nose: a fresh, citrusy Glenmorangie, with some chalk and clay, cider apples, lime and, perhaps, hints of fresh-sawn pinewood. Small quantities of liquorice allsorts and coconut balls. Mouth: very good, very juicy, very fruity, pretty much within its regional style. I know that's controversial but despite very different equipment, especially the stills, both neighbours Dalmore and Balblair are also producing this fresh and fruity style as long as no heavy sherry's involved. Juicy fruit, all-vitamin juice, melons and peaches, limoncello, orange brioche, small bananas, just a little spearmint too (is that the mizunara?)… Finish: not too long but clean and fruity. I would try to pour half a glass over some lemon sherbet, I'm sure that'll work. A little acacia honey in the aftertaste. Comments: dazzling Glenmorangie, I'll buy a bottle or three. Yes, despite the fact that it's NAS. Is it not?
