Glenmorangie: A Tale of Cake Exclusive Launch

A Tale of Cake is special whisky creation by the famous Master Distiller Dr. Bill Lumsden himself. He used to think back over how some of his most joyful memories came from cake. From the pineapple upside down cake his daughter made for his birthday to baking with his Granny in her kitchen.

He devised this whisky to conjure the magic of a cake moment, finishing his favourite Glenmorangie Single Malt in the finest Tokaji dessert wine casks.

The Glenmorangie 14YO Quinta Ruban is a newly launched, remake of the previous 12 year old.

Complex, rich and multi-layered, with a burst of passion fruit, peach, pear, mango. More savoury notes like baking bread, gentle sappy oak and a curious, flinty minerality emerge. Then followed by notes of honeycomb, vanilla and almond, with a hint of milk chocolate.

The mouthfeel is surprisingly luscious and tart at the same time, leading into a burst of sweet, cake-like – honey, white chocolate, apricot, almond, vanilla and pear.

This is balanced by a hint of tangy orange and menthol, both classic Glenmorangie flavours.

The lingering aftertaste again reminds you of a delicious combination of honeycomb, chocolate almond and pecan nuts.


As you’d imagine, this single malt tastes particularly delicious alongside real cake, which is why Glenmorangie has paired up with Dominique Ansel. Like Dr Bill, the pastry chef hailed as “the Willy Wonka of New York”, has a passion for exploring new tastes (take for example his world-famous Cronut® – a donut-croissant hybrid).

Inspired by our whiskies, he has created a series of indulgent cake and cocktail pairings – ‘CakeTails’ – which showcase their unique flavours with an extra slice of fun.
