Since 1897, Glen Moray has been crafting the finest single malts in Speyside, Scotland while experimenting with various types of casks to understand their influence on whisky. This tradition of exploration continues to inspire the craftsmen at Glen Moray. The Explorer Range, with its diverse selection of single malts, reflects the distillery’s commitment to discovering new flavours for all whisky enthusiasts.
The Glen Moray Double Cask Shiraz Finish is a testament to the distillery’s exploration of the impact of red wine casks on whisky. Initially aged in bourbon barrels to acquire classic vanilla and citrus notes, this single malt is then transferred to Shiraz casks for an additional two years, resulting in a harmonious blend of floral, fruity flavours.
Expect the fragrance of rose petals and red fruits, complemented by the indulgent taste of strawberries, creamy toffee, gentle oak, and a hint of spice.
“At Glen Moray we are passionate about experimenting with different cask types, to bring more tastes to drinkers – and that is what our Explorer range is all about. Whether drinkers are new to whisky or already connoisseurs, Glen Moray Double Cask Shiraz Finish is sure to delight, with its notes of strawberries and flowers, and undertones of oak,” says Glen Moray Brand Ambassador Iain Allan.
Purchase your bottle at Dan Murphy’s for $59.99.
