Quick Fire Whisky Tasting Notes

Glen Moray Madeira Cask Project
Speyside Single Malt Scotch Whisky
46.3% ABV

Nose: Vibrant and vivacious waves of tinned peaches in syrup, spiced poached pears, Madeira steeped sultanas and the filling from a hot McDonald’s apple pie. Followed by notes of gulab jamun (Indian dessert), plum jam, orange zest, Tunes cherry lozenges, bread pudding, mixed spice, sweet oak and tiny teases of Quality Street mint matchmakers.

Palate: A homemade fruit salad frenzy of freshly sliced pears, mandarins, peaches, pineapple, white grapes and cherries, with a good drizzling of spiced honey. Along with Madeira steeped sultanas, freshly baked Baklava, a shot of espresso coffee, mixed spice, pimento seeds, aniseed twists, wood spice and more of those Quality Street mint matchmakers.

Finish: A fully rounded, long, lingering finish, that perfectly summarises this superb sensory story!

Summary: Another big bang for buck belter, from what we feel is still one of the most underrated distilleries in Scotland. This latest release from Glen Moray, as per all their releases, magnificently highlights the quality of their spirit, cask management and all the skill and passion of the team that help to bring the final product to life!
