Glenmorangie has released a new limited-edition whisky, A Tale of Tokyo, a creation inspired by the fascination of Director of Whisky Creation Dr. Bill Lumsden with the Japanese capital and its captivating contrasts. This unique single malt evokes the wonders of Tokyo, marrying bold flavors with a subtle softness.
Peppery notes meet cherries and coconut, as orange zest fuses with incense and sweet oak. The finish brings classic Glenmorangie flavors of mandarin, almond and marzipan.
Commenting on Glenmorangie A Tale of Tokyo, Dr. Bill Lumsden said: “During my travels sharing Glenmorangie around the world I’ve gathered new inspirations for whisky creations, and Tokyo has always been one of my favorite places. I’m fascinated by the contradictions between its bustling streets and tranquil gardens, ancient and modern buildings, its many sensory experiences and its culture, and this made me wonder whether I could capture my experience of Tokyo in whisky form.”
Glenmorangie has also partnered with Japanese artist Yamaguchi Akira, who has contributed his creative perspective to adorn each bottle and its packaging. Juxtaposing famed landmarks from both Tokyo and the Highland Distillery, Yamaguchi Akira proposes an intricate work, uniting his maximalist style with Glenmorangie’s technicolor palette.
More than a whisky, Glenmorangie A Tale of Tokyo is an invitation to a sensorial exploration of Tokyo.
