Bottle Size 70cl.
As a Single Malt, Glen Moray is distilled in pot stills entirely by our distillery from water and only malted barley since 1897. Carefully matured in American oak casks sourced from North America. The result is a typical Single Malt from Speyside, soft and fruity with a large range which appeals to all consumers looking for a true story.
Number of Bottles 1468 UK Exclusive
A single malt Scotch whisky fully matured in ex-sweet Madeira hogsheads for 13 years and 10 months, the expression is a rich and indulgent combination of Glen Moray’s classic Speyside style and the sweet fruit and toffee influences of Madeira. Just seven of these casks were laid down in 2006, tucked away undisturbed in ‘Warehouse 1’ – home to the Elgin-based distillery’s maturation experiments over the years. This is where they would have remained, if not for the company’s new Head of Whisky Creation, Dr Kirstie McCallum, who took the time to sample the casks and realised that ‘hidden treasure’ had been discovered. 1468 bottles have now been released to the UK market as the third expression in the ‘Elgin Curiosity Range’, which aims to push the boundaries of single malt maturation and celebrate Glen Moray’s long standing passion for cask experimentation and flavour.
