Glen Moray Elgin Heritage 15 Year
Glen Moray // Speyside, Scotland
Glen Moray's Elgin Heritage collection is all about showing the flavorful and accessible whiskies from this Speyside distillery. The 15-year-old is a product of maturation in two distinct cask styles—sherry and American oak.
Single MaltDistilled in pot stills from 100% malted barley, produced at one distillery, aged in barrels; if Scotch or Irish, must be aged for at least three years.
Cask Typeex-sherry and American oak
"The nose is juicy, with sweet oranges and a whiff of banana peel. There's even a whisper of wood smoke, accompanied by vanilla and butterscotch. The palate is rather spicy—think cloves and pepper—and somewhat tannic, with some other usual suspects like vanilla and breakfast cereals. Certainly not a bad whisky, but maybe at tad too much oak on the palate."
