Imported into the U.S. by Prestige Beverage Group, Glen Moray has announced the release of its latest NAS Classic Range expression, Glen Moray Classic Sherry Cask Finish.
A new twist on a Speyside Classic.
First aged in North American ex-bourbon barrels for 6-7 years and then finished in the finest Oloroso sherry casks for 9-12 months, the result is a dram of whisky delight. Burnished gold in color with aromas of dried fruit, cinnamon, and toffee, and rich flavors of sweet vanilla, dark chocolate and oriental spice, the Classic Sherry Cask Finish adds a unique flair to Glen Moray’s Classic Range.
The intriguing flavor combinations engage the palette of whisky beginners and longtime enthusiasts alike, making the Glen Moray Classic Sherry Cask Finish a fine addition to any collection. Like all of Glen Moray’s single malts, the Classic Sherry Cask Finish is crafted by hand, with the collective wisdom and know-how of five generations of Master Distillers.
“The Glen Moray Classic Sherry Cask Finish is an unusual malt that seamlessly marries the profound Oloroso flavors of southern Spain with Glen Moray’s legendary Speyside smoothness. The unique maturing process allows the sweet American oak flavors to mix with the intense Oloroso sherry flavors, producing a whisky that tastes of vanilla oak, dark chocolate and oriental spice, with a wonderful depth of character.”
– Graham Coull, Glen Moray Master Distiller
