Glen Moray Cider Cask Bottling Note

An interesting first release in Glen Moray’s new Elgin Curiosity range, this single malt Scotch whisky was matured in casks that were previously used to hold Thistly Cross Scottish craft cider. While other countries have used cider casks to finish or age whisky, this is the first instance of a Scotch being officially matured in a cider cask due to the fact that they are not technically permitted within Scotch Whisky Association (SWA) guidelines.

However, the distillery has defended this choice as the cask used here was initially a whisky barrel that was sent to Thistly Cross (the two brands have had a barrel exchange programme since 2013). Thistly Cross used the casks to create its whisky-finished cider and sent them back. Glen Moray then matured this whisky in the casks, in an experimental first. Whichever way you look at this cider cask use, it's certainly innovative!

Tasting Note by The Producer

Nose: Reminiscent of a fairground. Toffee apple and candy floss.

Palate: Incredibly light and fresh. Summer fruits accompanied by vanilla ice cream sprinkled with toasted oats.

Finish: Smooth and satisfying. Caramelized apple laced with spice mixed perfectly with vanilla fudge, slowly melting on the tongue.

Glen Moray Cider Cask Project Reviews

A waft of apples.

Bought a bottle as GM Chardonnay and Port cask dram are very enjoyable and easy on the wallet. This definitely has a waft apple and is quite different to the average dram. Not as smooth as the Port finish, but interesting and very pleasant on the nose. Nice.
