Celebrating the whiskies of the world


An elegant and fruity Speyside expression

Beginning of 2016, Glen Moray will welcome Chardonnay as a new member of its Classic Collection. A Glen Moray with a twist. Double matured from the great combination of traditional oak casks, our whisky is then aged 8 months more in French Chardonnay wine barrels specially selected by our Master Distiller.

This new expression gives a perfect idea of what Chardonnay cask finish offers to Single Malts. Although it has something a little different from Burgundy, it still has its character firmly rooted in Speyside.

• Nose: A fresh clean nose with hints of apples, pear drops, fresh key lime, pie and bubblegum fading to a cinnamon sugar aroma.
• Taste: An elegant whisky with a soft mouthfeel and a taste befitting this meeting of Speyside and Burgundy.
• Finish: A nutty vanilla comes bursting out with a soft cinnamon spice culminating in a gentle floral finish.
