A seriously well-balanced Speysider.

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, 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 fine Single Malts.

Part of their Classic range, Glen Moray Peated Single Malt Scotch Whisky is a wonderfully peaty offering. This is a Speyside Single Malt Scotch that manages to balance the classic medicinal peaty whiffs with waves of vanilla, orchard fruits, and some floral notes. This fantastic Speysider can be enjoyed in any way you prefer: neat, with a drop of water, on the rocks, or as a high-end cocktail base.

Beer and malt Whisky seem to have quite a bit in common. Both drinks begin with malted barley, which deliver the enzymes and sugars needed for fermentation when steeped in hot water. The two go their separate ways at the wash stage, where they're fermented or aged to become the adult beverages you know and love.
90% of all Scotch Whisky released in the market is a blend. That’s a hell of a lot.
Is Scotch always Scottish? What do you think? Yes. The answer is yes.
Scotland is home to more than 20 million casks of maturing Whisky. That’s four for every person living there. Nuts!
Categories of Scotch Whisky: Single malt, Blended malt (formerly called Vatted malt), blended, single grain and blended grain Scotch.
Single Malt Scotch Whisky is made in Scotland using a pot still distillation process at a single distillery, with malted barley as the only grain ingredient. It must be matured in oak casks in Scotland for at least three years (most Single Malts are matured longer, though).
