Glenmorangie 珍藏系列 Private Edition第六款作品 Tùsail 是向一款近乎失傳的珍稀大麥Maris Otter致敬。這重要核心大麥隨著啤酒口味的改變，在70年代開始沒落，到了80年代後期更瀕臨絕種，直至 Dr Lumsden 採以傳統地板發麥技術才釀造出新作。大麥的深邃豐富風味襯托出酒體的清爽，明亮泥黃色展現出核桃拖肥、甜大麥、薑、肉桂、糖蜜與核棗的濃郁和質樸氣息，份外香甜醉人。
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.
