An interesting spicy dram from Glen Moray - a 10 year old whisky entirely matured in Chardonnay casks. The start of what we hope is a continuing line of new whiskies from this often overlooked distillery.

Nose: Sweet, with notes of orange and a hint of butteriness in the background.
Palate: Sweet marmalade and butter (in keeping with the nose). The fruit-intensity, sweetness and alcohol are very well integrated.
Finish: Medium to long, rich and fruity, with plenty of that marmalade that has been a recurrent theme throughout.
Comment: Whiskies aged full-term in wine casks are pretty rare and those aged in white-wine casks even more so. The butteriness comes from these casks and, while it is an unusual trait in whisky, integrates well with the rest of the flavours. At this price, it’s another excellent-value whisky.

I can definitely smell thsweet white wine in this one. A very nice dram over similar to Glenmorangie Nectar For but halt he price nearly. Excellent buy, very nice whisky.

I tend to find the stuff from Glen moray too sweet but this particular dram has a nice tangy edge to it, a touch of sweetness like butterscotch and a light fruit after taste. Well worth a try for a budget scotch.
