A Speyside Single Malt with a sophisticated, lightly dry finish.

Glen Moray was born as West Brewery run by Robert Thorne & Sons. It was converted into a Whisky distillery in 1897. From the very start, prime quality has been job one. The dedication and “authenticity” of Glen Moray’s Single Malt production is just about as good as it gets — changing very little over their 120 years of production on the same spot. The distillery sits on the banks of River Lossie in the Royal Burgh of Elgin — the historic capital of Speyside — and the road into town passes directly through the distillery grounds. Today they are owned by French spirits company La Martiniquaise and all of the production goes into their range of nine Single Malts.

The master distiller at Glen Moray is Graham Coull. He knows his stuff and is responsible for bringing the Glen Moray Chardonnay Cask Finish product into fruition. Now, if you are a fan of Glen Moray, you likely know that they previously produced a Single Malt aged completely in Chardonnay casks. As tasty as that offering was, this Whisky retains more of its Single Malt character, since it's obviously less influenced by the Chardonnay Wine cask during its maturation process. It’s definitely a great dram and a real value too, but you should sample it for yourself.

Corner
Scotch Whisky is almost never aged in new barrels. Bourbon and Tennessee Whiskey casks are usually used for maturation, while many times ageing process and flavor finishing is concluded in various wine casks, such as sherry or port.

Throughout its entire history, the Glen Moray Distillery has had only five distillery managers. Each has personally trained their successor, passing on the secrets of the spirit.

Alan,
This is a very smooth scotch. I like the Speyside scotches, and all of Glen Moray scotches ate wonderful.

Richard,
A very flavorful dram, has an immediate mellow buttery flavor that is followed by a peaty finish. This is pushing the upper limits of my peat palate, and while I enjoy this bottle very much, and I would buy it again among other lesser options, I would not go out of my way to purchase another bottle. A perfectly acceptable dram.
