Allegedly the sunniest distillery in Scotland, Glen Moray lies on the banks of the River Lossie in Elgin, Speyside, where it has been distilling malt whisky since 1897. In the 1990s, the then-distillery manager, Ed Dodson, began experimenting with wine-cask matured (not finished) malts, an exploration carried on by the current manager, Graham Coull. This bottling comes from that tradition, having been matured exclusively for ten years in French Chardonnay casks. Bottled at 40% ABV.

Tasting Notes

"A zippy delight. Tart fruit dominates the overall profile, such as green apples and clementines. The nose gives a hint of strawberry fields as well, while white chocolate comes into play on the palate. Really refreshing. "
