Glenmorangie Tusail

Glenmorangie Tusail-  The wizards at big “G” Intergallatic Distilling have even more expressions than politicians have lies.  Our subject malt is a very limited edition bottling using double row Maris Otter barley which allows for a lower yield ( read : higher priced ), and the traditional floor malting makes for a premium craft product. The resulting golden scotch is a richly aromatic malt with toffee and fruit notes layered with some distant spicyness.  The incredibly tall and narrow stills at Glenmorangie result in a lighter spirit and this is as close to artisnal as the big boys get.  The lack of an age statement , for me at least, is not relevant with Tusail , it’s the taste that matters, and it is top shelf.  I can’t say the same about our politicians however, and the hackneyed line about ” when their lips are moving” has never been truer . Turn off the relentless blah, blah, blah,  take refuge from the nonsense and enjoy this 8.5 rated truth teller.
