Glenmorangie Legends - The Tayne

Not Exactly a Legend

Reviewed by victor

Adding some older reviews - original review date was October 20, 2017. "Tayne refers to the local lore of a Spanish galleon's lost treasures in the depths of the Tayne Firth (now known as Dornoch)." - some site Legends is apparently a Glenmorangie series for travel retail, with each expression referring to a particular Highland legend. Not very familiar with those, but I do know that Glenmorangie makes some tasty drinking material. So, is this just a marketing gimmick to sell NAS whisky at duty free shops, or a solid effort? We'll see!

Amontillado Sherry (yes, that's the name of that particular shade)


Apples, dark fruits, brown sugar.


Oak, modest fruity sweetness.


Spicy oak, sherry.

Good. Tasty. Non-offensive. Could drink it all night long. Not very memorable, but something I'd gladly have in my shelf if I could find it cheaply enough. With so much interesting Scotch out there though, I don't see myself actively seeking this one out.
