Finished in old Port casks for extra depth of flavour the nose has vanilla, blackberry, red currants and toast oak nuances. The palate is sweet with barley sugar, cinnamon, raisins, red currants and butterscotch. The finish is long with honey, creamy swathes of vanilla and chocolate. Great value!
ABOUT THE PRODUCER
Glen Moray started life as West Brewery in Elgin run by Robert Thorne & Sons, and was converted to a distillery with 2 stills in 1897. Following a fire and extensive rebuilding program at their Aberlour Distillery, the company focused on production of Aberlour whisky, allowing the Glen Moray distillery to run down. It was closed in 1910. The distillery was purchased by the owners of the Glenmorangie Distillery, the MacDonald and Muir families at some time during the 1920s. The distillery received 2 additional stills in 1958 and at present has an annual capacity of around 2,000,000 litres. Being in the Laich O'Moray the distillery benefits from the region's milder climate as it is afforded protection from the Cairngorm and Monadhliath Mountains. The geographic location of the distillery and also the fact that it sits in a hollow below the water table means that the warehousing has the perfect conditions to allow for the Angels to take more of a share of the whisky than they will of others.Scotland Speyside Glen Moray 0.4
