This Glen Moray single malt Scotch whisky was created by master distiller Graham Coull after he was inspired to create an intensely sweet and smooth expression due to the success and popularity of American bourbon. Glen Moray Fired Oak was aged for 10 years in ex-bourbon casks before it was finished in heavily charred American oak to mirror the production of bourbon (by law bourbon must be aged in charred virgin oak).
Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt
Nose: Oak char, vanilla sweetness and dark fruits lead among dried grass, toffee and milk chocolate.
Palate: Through banoffee pie, tangy citrus and butterscotch candies there are notes of golden barley, oaky vanilla and freshly picked red berries.
Finish: Well balanced and sweet.
