Glenmorangie Duthac. Photo ©2015 by Mark Gillespie.This travel retail exclusive uses a combination of Pedro Ximinez and Virgin Oak casks for finishing, and was blended to produce a dark, rich single malt in the vein of Glenmorangie Signet or Quinta Ruban.

The sherry influence is evident on the nose with notes of dark fruits, orange peel, hints of banana, coconut, and vanilla, along with a touch of toasted oak. The taste is spicy and fruity with clove, cinnamon, allspice, orange peel, touches of plums and figs, vanilla, and a hint of coconut in the background. The finish is juicy and mouth-watering with lingering spices. Very nice. (May, 2015)
