We're all partial to indulging with a little treat at the end of a long, hard day. For some, it's dessert. For others, it's a nip of single malt scotch. So it was only a matter of time before someone brought those two things together to create one decadent treat. Yes, we talking about a dessert-inspired whisky. That's exactly what Glenmorangie's Director of Whisky Creation Dr Bill Lumsden has done with his newest release, A Tale of Cake.

Unafraid to take on a challenge, Lumsden started experimenting years ago by using dessert wine casks, sourced from Hungarian's award-winning producer Royal Tokaji, in the whisky aging process. He was interested to see how the distinctive sweetness of the dessert wine could complement the whisky. He began with the usual process of making Glenmorangie's single malt: distilling it in the towering copper stills and aging in bourbon casks to give its signature citrus notes. The product was then transferred to the Royal Tokaji casks for further aging. The end result was A Tale of Cake, a complex drop that releases tropical fruit aromas (passionfruit, peach and mango) and sweet candy-like flavours — think honey, white chocolate and apricot — followed by a smooth aftertaste of honeycomb, chocolate and nuts.

If that description has your mouth watering, you'll be very pleased to learn that we have a bottle of this limited-edition drop to give away. Just enter your details below to be in the running. Can't wait that long? A Tale of Cake is also available to purchase from Boozebud, Porters and other leading independent bottle shops. And keep an eye out for the activation at Maha Restaurant later this month, where you'll get to try the new whisky in an experimental cocktail alongside an expertly paired dessert (aka the Glenmorangie Caketail).
