Our tasting notes are as follows:
Color: Pale gold
Nose: A fruity opening (unripe pears and underripe green plums) integrates with warm butterscotch, fried apple pie, and chamomile and honey tea before cinnamon sticks and dunnage warehouses add a beguiling layer to the experience
Palate: Leads with ground spices (garam masala, nutmeg, turmeric, and clove) but there's fruitiness with unripe green apples and sweetness with candied almonds
Finish: Medium length with sugary cereal, ground grey pepper and just a hint of cardamon
On the label: A warm butterscotch sweetness leads into green fruits before giving way to ground spices on the palate and a sweet and spicy finish
Built as a brewery in 1831 the beautiful Glen Moray distillery was converted for whisky production in 1897. Standing on the banks of Elgin's river Lossie the distillery ranks among Scotland's most picturesque. Rarely found as a single cask bottling in the US, the house style is buttery and spicy with vanilla sweetness and a lovely, oily mouthfeel.
