It's not where you typically imbibe a fine whisky, but Mr Simms’s candy shop proved a fun venue to experience a first taste of award-winning Glenmorangie’s private edition – Glenorangie Milsean.
Glenmorangie Milsean is a single malt whisky purposely re-toasted after being matured in ex bourbon casks and then in former wine casks. Owning intense fruit flavours and perfumed with hints of sugar cane, ripe fruits, sherbet lemons and chocolate fragrances, Glenorangie Milsea tastes lusciously sweet and spicy like orange peel and peaches, followed by a sweet tobacco-hinted aftertaste.
Glenorangie Milsean, Glenmorangie Original, The Lasanta
We also tried the pale gold Glenmorangie Original with a scent of vanilla and flowery fruitness, and a ten year old Lasanta, which combines a caramel toffee aroma and a taste of sherry flavoured sultanas and butterscotch, finished with a long-lasting spicy chocolate flavour.
It was a lovely way to spend a Saturday afternoon pairing whisky with the colourful candy drops offered by Mr Simms Olde Sweet Shoppe.
Glenmorangie Milsean is available in Hong Kong City’super, Rare & Fine Wine and Brix Wine Cellar. Every purchase of a bottle of Glenmorangie Private Edition Milsean (70cl) will come with a complimentary box of Mr Simms’s candies.
