Glen Moray launch Sherry Cask to their classic range
Glen Moray have launched a new expression, Glen Moray Classic Sherry Cask Finish, which will be available from the beginning of July.
This new addition to their Classic range has been created to offer a new twist on the traditional Glen Moray taste-profile by adding layers of rich and spicy sweetness to the spirit’s typically light and floral flavours of butterscotch and lemongrass.
Graham Coull, Glen Moray master distiller, comments: “Glen Moray Classic Sherry Cask Finish is a celebration of the age old tradition of maturing whisky in the finest Oloroso sherry casks. I select Glen Moray which has been maturing in American oak casks and transfer it to the highest quality sherry casks for a minimum of 8 months. The resulting whisky is incredibly rich and satisfying.”
According to the makers, Sherry Cask has a burnished gold colour and a nose that’s bursting with dried fruits, cinnamon and toffee candy. Its taste is of layers of sweet vanilla oak, dark chocolate and oriental spice with a long finish with a tingle of spice.
