Glen Moray Port Cask Finish Scotch Whisky
In its first life, Glen Moray was the Elgin West Brewery, until the end of the 19th century, when the brewery was reincarnated as the iconic Speyside distillery. Glen Moray was founded by Robert Thorne & Sons. Situated on the banks of River Lossie, in the Royal Burgh of Elgin, the first spirit dropped from the copper pot stills on the 13th of September 1897. There have only been five Master Distillers since then, which is a testament to their authenticity, and reputation for producing consistent, quality spirit. This pristine craftsmanship has been passed down through generations. With over a century of tradition, not much has changed at the iconic Speyside distillery. They continue to mature their whiskies in a wide array of casks, a technique which was once a rarity. Their whisky ages onsite in casks ranging from sherry and chardonnay to port, yielding an impressive spectrum of aromas and flavors. After a brief pause in production during WWII, Glen Moray revamped their facilities and expanded, and the distillery is currently owned by French spirits company La Martiniquaise. Graham Coull is the fifth master distiller at Glen Moray. At the helm of the operation, he oversees all of the production that goes into their signature core range, featuring nine single malts. Glen Moray single malts are produced entirely onsite, in pot stills, from the distillery's own water and malted barley. A tradition that dates back to 1897. The whiskies mature in American oak casks sourced from North America. The result is a signature single malt with every bit of Speyside character: soft and fruit-laden. This elegant single malt is finished for eight months in Port pipes from Porto Cruz, the N1 Porto company in the world. Expect intense notes of summer fruit, dark chocolate and cinnamon and a distinct pink hue.
