ELGIN, Scotland — Glen Moray is excited to introduce its newest addition to their Classic Range, the Glen Moray Classic Sherry Cask Finish.
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,” said Glen Moray’s Master Distiller Graham Coull. “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.”
Keeping with tradition of other single malts in Glen Moray’s Classic Range, the Sherry Cask Finish provides a true discovery experience. Approachable in both style and price point, the Classic Sherry Cask Finish is ideal for sipping on its own or creating endless iterations of craft cocktails.
The Glen Moray Classic Sherry Cask Finish has an SRP of $29.99 and will be available in stores nationwide. To learn more about the Classic Sherry Cask Finish, watch Master Distiller Graham Coull discuss its creation here.
