Glen Moray releases limited edition 25 year old single malt

Renowned Scottish distillery, Glen Moray has welcomed a new limited edition, Speyside single malt to its portfolio with the release of its 25 Year Old Portwood Finish Single Malt Scotch Whisky.

The latest addition to the distillery’s distinguished range is a rich and complex Single Malt Scotch Whisky which has been matured in ex bourbon casks, and then moved to authentic repurposed port casks, imported from Portugal.  

“The Glen Moray 25 Year Old Portwood Finish is a truly elegant whisky,” said Graham Coull, Glen Moray’s Master Distiller.

“Marrying the flavours of bourbon cask matured Glen Moray with the subtle wine notes from the Port has given a wonderful degree of complexity.”

The whisky features scents of tropical fruits laced with toffee and hints of ginger, liquorice and mint. The taste is that of a rich, full bodied and perfectly balanced whiskey with lashings of fruit and vanilla, complemented with a long lingering finish of dark chocolate and creamy vanilla tones.

Only 3,482 individually numbered bottles will be available of the limited edition whisky worldwide.

To celebrate the release, Coull hosted a tasting masterclass consisting of five of the distillery’s finest single malts, paired with complementing cheeses at the popular Since I left You bar located on Kent Street Sydney.

Each cheese perfectly complemented the unique and rich flavours of the whiskies.

The five specially selected whiskies and cheeses included:

  • Glen Moray Classic Single Malt Whisky paired with Woodside Chevre
  • Glen Moray Chardonnay Cask 10 Year Old Single Malt Whisky paired with  Berry’s Creek Tarwin Blue
  • Glen Moray 12 Year Old Single Malt Whisky paired with parmesan
  • Glen Moray 16 Year Old Single Malt Whisky paired with Quickies Cheddar
  • Glen Moray 25 Year Old Portwood Finish Single Malt Whisky paired with 36 Month Comte

The Glen Moray distillery was initially built as a brewery in 1831 and was converted into a distillery in 1897. The distillery was sold in 2008 by the Glenmorangie Company Ltd, to the independent French group La Martiniquaise.

Glen Moray has only had five distillery managers in its history and features a small but highly dedicated team, holding Australia as its largest market outside of the UK.
