Glen Moray 2015
Glen Moray sits just outside the Speyside town of Elgin, held by some to be the capital of Scotch whisky. Every distillery needs good access to water to make their malt, but this is a lesson that Glen Moray may have taken too much to heart. The Lossie river is its water source, and is so abundant with water that until 2009 it regularly flooded the distillery. A new flood defense now protects Glen Moray, and their use of excellent Lossie water makes for a soft, fruity and delightful whisky.
This whisky was distilled at Glen Moray in June 2015 and so has had over 6 years of maturation in this First Fill Bourbon Barrel. At last regauge in 2021, it had an ABV of 61.60%, indicating that it has the potential for many years more of maturation. Having started life as a brewery, Glen Moray was converted into a distillery in 1897, and has really found recognition as a single malt since La Martiniquaise took ownership in 2008. Since the distillery is known for whisky that is smooth, light and fruity, Glen Moray matured in a First Fill Bourbon Barrel is sure to produce a dram that is a real treat for the palate.
