Since 1897, single Malt whisky has been distilled at Glen Moray on the banks of the River Lossie, just outside Elgin, one of Scotland’s oldest towns. In its lifetime, the Speyside distillery has known only 5 distillery managers. Glen Moray is well-known for producing spirit with a light body and sweetness with spicy fruit and honey notes. With only 62 bottles, this is an extremely rare single malt whisky.
Distilled on the 1st of July 2008 and bottled the 10th of April 2019. 50 litres were taken from Bourbon hogshead barrel #5585 to be finished in a Pedro Ximenez sherry octave for 3 months. This was the 2nd batch from cask #5585A which was finished in the same octave.
Our Pedro Ximenez octaves are sourced from a family-owned bodgega near Porto in Portugal. Pedro Ximenez is a very intense sweet, dark sherry. Octaves are small 50 litre oak casks that provide great levels of oak to spirit contact.
On the palate, expect hints of pear drops, melon, cloves and tea.
