( 3 )

Created by current master distiller, Graham Coull, this single malt is a blend of five vintages as young as 1978. They represent three whiskies from Glen Moray’s previous master distillers along with two of Coull's. This multi-vintage whisky marks the 120th anniversary of Glen Moray. The whiskies were aged in former fortified wine casks; either port, sherry, or Madeira casks were used for these vintages. The whisky is non chill-filtered and bottled at 52.3% ABV. 1000 decanters are available for sale.

Tasting Notes

"The nose is rich and expressive with red fruits, custard cream biscuits, toasted oak, dried fruits, leather and touches of beewax. On the palate, it becomes even more complex and powerful, delivering notes of coffee, nuts, sweet and hot spices, burnt caramel, and something of an old furniture store atmosphere. The aftermath is deliciously long-lasting with drier notes. Overall, the influence of the fortified wine is very clear but still well balanced. "
