This beauty; Matured in American oak ex-Bourbon casks before a secondary maturation in Port casks, is the 21 year old single malt, full of ‘blackcurrant and liquorice’ notes with ‘chewy caramel toffee and chilli infused chocolate’ on the finish. I didnee get all that, but I did get a superb dram! Graham Coull, master distiller at Glen Moray, said: ‘The whisky is the perfect balance of American oak and Port flavours – immerse yourself in what is a wonderfully complex dram.’ Bottled at 46.3% abv, the 21 year old was initially sold as an exclusive from Edinburgh’s Royal Mile Whiskies during the Whisky Fringe Festival 2019, the whisky is available from specialist whisky retailers worldwide from 12 August priced at £125 per 70cl bottle. The 21 Year Old is part of Glen Moray’s Elgin Heritage Collection, the distillery’s core range of age stated single malts described as ‘an accessible slice of luxury’, which also includes expressions such as the Bourbon inspired Fired Oak. Glen Moray is also experimenting with a series of more unusual cask finishes as part of its’ Curiosity Collection, such as its Rhum Agricole Project which was launched earlier this month. This one of my favourite distilleries, we have several friends there and take many guests on their tours. I can only say, the value for money here is second to none, the drams are great, the prices fantastic! A 21 year old for £125, compare that with the Macallan 21 Year Old – Fine Oak at £749.90 – I know which bottle I would buy!
