Nose: Complex and oaky.
Taste: Lovely spice coming through from the Bourbon.
Finish: Long and lingering; chocolate and vanilla notes.


Glen Moray Port Wood 25 Year Old Single Malt Whisky has plenty of bourbon influence to balance out the sweet port finish; this Glen Moray is one fine dram. Crammed full of fruits, nuts, vanilla and chocolate. It spent 23 years in ex-Bourbon cask then moved to Port pipes.

About the Brand

The Glen Moray distillery was founded by The Glen Moray Glenlivet Co. Ltd. in 1897, in a former brewery.The distillery is situated in a hollow on the bank of the River Lossie, to the west of Elgin, in the Speyside whisky region. The location was ideal, due to the high quality of the water there. It produced whisky until 1910, when it was closed. It briefly reopened in 1912, but was forced to close shortly after. It remained closed until 1920, when Glen Moray found itself in financial trouble, and the distillery was acquired by Macdonald & Muir. Production resumed in 1923, and for years, the distillery just quietly produced whisky. In 1958, the distillery was rebuilt, with the amount of stills doubling from two to four, and the malting floor was replaced with a Saladin box. In 1971, the stills were converted to use steam heating. 1976 marked the year where the first Glen Moray became available as single malt, though it was not heavily marketed as such. Glen Moray has kept a low profile since 2008, sticking to a regular range of single malt expressions. Now, the Speyside distillery has released a 25-year-old single malt finished in Port casks and bottled at 43% ABV. A limited release of only 3,482 bottles.
