This latest release from the Elgin based distillery, is said to be a rich and indulgent combination of Glen Moray’s classic Speyside style and the sweet fruit and toffee influences of Madeira.
Glen Moray Madeira Cask Project, is the third expression in the ‘Elgin Curiosity Range’, a series which aims to push the boundaries of single malt maturation and celebrate Glen Moray’s long standing passion for cask experimentation and flavour.
Commenting on the news, Dr Kirstie McCallum, Glen Moray’s Head of Whisky Creation, said: “Single malt whisky matured in Madeira casks has been prized in the industry before, but typically the casks have only been used to ‘finish’ more conventionally matured whisky. That’s what makes this new expression so very special. Our new make spirit has been slowly mingling with the luxuriously sweet flavours of Madeira for nearly 14 years, giving a depth of flavour and an intense character that couldn’t otherwise be created. It’s a delicious dram, a dessert in a glass, and we are very much looking forward to sharing it with whisky drinkers in the UK.”
Limited 1468 bottles, Glen Moray Madeira Cask Project, will be available later this month from specialist retailers in the UK, for a RRP of £65.00.
