A 2014 addition to Glen Moray’s selection of Speyside single malt Scotch whiskies, their Classic Port Cask Finish is treated to an 8 month finishing period in Tawny Port casks before being bottled.
Nose: Creamy vanilla at the fore, joined by jammy redcurrants and blackberry. Toasted oak touches in the background.
Palate: Butterscotch candies, golden barley and a touch of cinnamon. The port cask influence comes through with light notes of raisins and freshly picked red berries.
Finish: Rather long, with honey, vanilla and a dusting of cocoa.
