Glen Moray Distillery is celebrating the success of Glen Moray’s 1994 Sherry Cask Finish which won the Best Scotch, Speyside Single Cask Single Malt award at The World Whiskies Awards 2018.
Glen Moray 1994 Sherry Cask Finish is a limited edition whisky which has a rich chestnut colour. On the nose there is rich cinnamon and clove aromas with dark cherries and ripe red berries coated in a fudge sauce. Also vintage leathers combine with fruit and spices.
To taste it is full of classic and unmistakable sherry characteristics, which are heady and powerful. There are hints of nutmeg and cinnamon sprinkled over a layer of traditional sweets with lashings of caramel, fudge, dark chocolate, glace cherries and crunchy honeycomb.
The finish is long, lingering and sweet, coating the mouth like a dark chocolate liqueur.
Glen Moray 1994 Sherry Cask Finish was released as part of a series of three whiskies, along with the 1994 Bourbon Cask and 1994 Peated Cask.
There are only a few bottles of this superb whisky. Glen Moray 1994 Sherry Cask Finish is £125 for a 70cl bottle and is only available from The Glen Moray Visitors Centre or calling 01343 550 900.
