Glenmorangie Tùsail Bottling Note

The sixth release from Glenmorangie's exceedingly popular Private Edition series is the Tùsail, which has been made with Maris Otter barley. Maris Otter was originally bred in 1965 to meet the need for a high quality brewing malt, though it eventually fell out of style, with higher-yielding varieties taking its place.

Although the barley was perhaps not as widely used as before, some very clever people made sure to secure the future of Maris Otter, allowing producers to continue to use this high quality malt for their tasty ales... and for whisky, too!

Dr. Bill Lumsden and his team have created the Tùsail, a single malt Scotch whisky made using Maris Otter barley (which has been floor malted by hand), matured in a small amount of specially selected casks. A very, very cool release from the Glenmorangie Private Collection.

Glenmorangie Tùsail Private Edition Reviews

Yes perlease!!!

If you don’t enjoy this you are dead. Yes, there are better whiskies, there are worse whiskies, there are more expensive and there are cheaper but if you don’t enjoy this you are dead. Drink coke and go away.

Their best!

This is one of the best whiskies I've ever had and almost certainly my favorite Glenmorangie. I've had most of their range, private and special releases included. I enjoyed it more than the 25 and probably comes in as my third favorite whisky next to Lagavulin 16 and Highland Park 15. The notes were very similar to the original but so much more pronounced. The marris otter barley needs a comeback.

Mild, något spritig men endast smakat vid lätt berusat tillstånd.

Exquisite.

The nose and palate are both more pronounced than the original. I picked up more oak than in any Glenmorangie I've ever had. I'll treasure the few bottles I have but I don't know that others would want to pay as much. The Quinta Ruban might still be my favorite from Glenmorangie but this one is definitely worth a try.

Exquisite!

The nose and palate are both considerably more pronounced than the original. As the others have said, it may not be worth the price more than once but it is definitely worth trying. I'm keeping a couple bottles for the collection for sure.

Very Solid

I'm a huge Glenmorangie fan. To me, this tastes like the Original amplified on every level - punchier on the nose with more fruits thrown in the palate. Personally, I get pear, which is unique. However, this whisky doesn't add much new to the table, especially considering its place in the rare finish-happy private edition line. That's where it loses a point for me. I don't know if getting a fairly basic, yet perfectly delicious, whisky in the Tusail is worth the $70 more compared to the Original for casual whisky fans. Great to have for any Glenmorangie fan, though!

Original indeed

Tried this in my local pub, was very pleasantly surprised! Definitely has the Glenmorangie DNA but with lovely soft malty sugar and biscuit/pastry notes on the nose and palate, with an unusual texture presumably from the MO barley. Finally managed to source a bottle which I will be sure to treasure as long as I can make it last but I was very late in the game. If you can find one, it is worth the money.

Classic Malt, Glenmorangie Style

If your looking for a peat/sherry monster then maybe you should move on.

With that said this scotch has a wonderfull creamy malty taste.

Lemon biscuits, malty caramel, subdued floral notes. Its subtle but delicious. Worth a bottle, even two if you can find some.

My first Glenmorangie.. don't say it will be my last but I'm not that well impressed.

Gotta say it's a bit pricy.. but I guess that's cause it's limited. I've tasted better whiskies even through this was my first experience of Glenmorangie.

5th January 2016

Disappointing

Glenmorangie make some fine fine whiskies, but this "limited" release is somewhat lacking in my opinion. Fair value at half the price.

Revision - Fortunate One

I was getting mixed signals, and after further review, it's creamy almond/marzipan I'm getting, in step with a coco nuttiness. Also, getting the whole Goëtzes(?) caramel creme. I should also apologize for using nearly the same description twice. Sláinte!

Fortunate One - Massachusetts

Just grabbed a bottle today at $99.95 in Lakeville, MA. I've long been a fan of Glenmorangie, with circa '99-'01 (?) Madeira Wood being an all-time favorite that I can only think longingly of, unfortunately. I've read and watched multiple reviews and have looked forward to trying this, but had little hope of finding a bottle locally, especially at a tick under $100. I was not disappointed in the slightest upon pouring a dram, even the first one. This is an absolutely stunning, belter of a whisky. I've got to grab another to hold onto for the future.
Nose: With a swirl of the glass, instantly got creamy coconut macaroon, Goëtz vanilla creme, sweet buttered brioche and aged rum notes.
Palate: Velvety malt, more coconut, but drier on the tongue with a softly tannic vanilla shortbread cookie.
Finish: Average Length with sour green coconut, malted milk balls, and a faint sweet barley sugar note.
Conclusion: With a few drops of water, I started to get citrus notes weaving in and out. Complex fruit and sweetly soft bakery treats. Just utterly and unapologetically unique. I'm tasting 20+ year old rum and brilliant small-batch bourbon. It's unapologetically different, and utterly sublime.

The best malt ever

This is one of the best whiskies Morangie has produce and leaves you in no doubt you are drinking malted whisky it's like drinking malt biscuits and having a bakery jump in your mouth at the end. I don't know what Glenmorangie has been cooking up or rather baking up but it's golden otter barley should be used from now on instead of quantity over quality in all of Scotland's great distillaries. This one is going to go down like the great Morangie ealanta did, so get one while you can.

Freshly baked Glenmorangie

A very elegant, fresh & barley rich offering that feels like freshly baked apricot custard Danish or homemade biscuits. Aromatic spices, sugared almonds, ripe melon, ginger powder, pink grapefruit with icing sugar all compete for your attention. This is a much fresher & juicer morangie with some lovely chewy malty nutty praline toffee on the moreish finish. The Whisky Flaneur

grestvyear for glenmorangie

Having tried dornoch early this year and fallen in love I find myself amazed once again. This has a uniqueness to it and leaves you craving more. Not typical morangie but typically brilliant.

Tusail is to relish

As a long time Glenmorangie fan, I found this to be a delightful surprise, and initially challenging to fully understand. The nose is classic Glenmorangie, though less floral than Original, and with a hint of sweet bourbon lurking in the background. The palate is wholly unique, not just for a Glenmorangie, but for any single malt I have yet experienced. It is full bodied, complex and earthy, with a smooth malty sweetness and savory spice reminiscent of rye, along with cardamom and just enough black pepper for pleasant warmth, and a hint of vanilla. There is also a mouthwatering grapefruit tang and a delicious savory/bitter note of walnut. The finish is relatively long, with prominent spice, walnut again, then gradually fading to a lingering sweetness. Overall, this is a truly interesting, adventurous and flavorful single malt - well worth the money!

In hopes that MOM will source some more !

You all have to try this it's truly sublime !. It's oviously N.A.S (no age statement) but Glenmorangie has the age and the ability as well as the exsperiance to pull of a Private Edition like this with its malty and sweet characteristics that shouts out "I'm definatly a single malt" . If they actually made a line with maris otter barley it would sell like hot cakes because it just leaves you gob smacked on its quality and flavour and shows if you get quality ingredients then add some knowledge then it's very likley you will have a quality product at the end that can take on the best of exspensive whisky's like the once untouchable Glenmorangie Ealanta !

It's the best morangie I've had !

This is a curious creation from your normal morangie but ohh god have they pulled it off !. The nose gives biscuity and almond aroma with fresh lemon or lemon grass and sweet and fresh cooking aroma of baking full butter short bread with a huge dose of malty maltiness. The palate is much the same as the nosing only far.......far more flavour, this is the equivalent of the children Disney film beauty and the beast and the beauty being the fresh elegant aromas and the beast being the fullness of the flavours just a magnificent creation by the very clever and very creative talented Dr Bill Lumsden also a little birdie tells me the barley used in this is the very same used in the other very clever morangie which is signet only its not roasted in a Coffey roaster like the Signet Barley is. The finish is long and sweet with the malty biscuity almondy taste slowly dispersing on the tongue. What a magnificent dram and this is one of my all time favourites of Glenmorangie, 5 stars easely and more if I could andic pays homage to all Spaysider aficionados !!!

soft southerner

this is the most exquisite whisky i have tasted in years, truly unique. And no wonder, it is made from Maris Otter, the only barley ever to have been developed for its flavour. It is used in all of the worlds best beers, well done Glenmorangie!
