The Personal Cask Assortment has been handpicked from Glen Moray’s Warehouse 1, the place the distillery’s valued casks are saved

Glen Moray’s Personal Cask Assortment is a collection of the Speyside distillery’s aged single malt whiskies.

The unique collection is launching with a 13-year-old expression, completed in Marsala casks from Sicily.

The US will see the primary launch adopted by a 10-year-old whisky, completed in Pauillac Grand Cru pink wine casks from Bordeaux. In the meantime, China will obtain a follow-up launch of a 26-year-old Madeira cask-finished expression. 

The whiskies from the Personal Cask Assortment have been individually chosen to every current ‘excellent depth and character’.

Iain Allan, Glen Moray model ambassador, mentioned: “The Personal Cask Assortment is the proper alternative for whisky collectors to discover a few of Glen Moray’s most treasured casks. Every single malt chosen for the collection stands out due to its distinctive high quality – and the primary launch is to not be missed.

“Completed in Marsala wine casks from Bordeaux, this 13-year-old bottling showcases the flexibility of Glen Moray whisky. It demonstrates how our spirit integrates, moulds and marries with completely different cask influences to provide a very beautiful and distinctive dram.”

Distilled in 2007, the whisky has notes of toffee and chocolate on the nostril, with a rounded and fruity palate. The end has been described as containing hints of candy creamy berries, with a lingering mild spice.

Simply 238 bottles of the primary launch of Glen Moray’s Personal Cask Assortment can be found, at 56.6% ABV a bottle.

Final 12 months, Glen Moray launched a Scotch whisky matured in Sauternes wine casks as the primary expression in its new Warehouse 1 Assortment.
