Label 5 Gold Heritage Review

Label 5I'd heard good things about this blended whisky Brand which seems to only be available in France, or from some very specialist shops or at the Glen Moray distillery in Elgin, who have the same owners, and especially as their bottling plant is 5 minutes from my house.

I'd like to thank Iain (@iain_g_allan) the Visitor Centre Manager at Glen Moray for the very generous sample of this hard to find blended dram.

It still has that fabulous sweetness that is very more core to the range along with a lot of vanilla and maltiness that only comes from the whisky having spent time in quality ex bourbon casks, this really is a lovely dram that shows signs of age and respect.

Thanks again to Iain (@iain_g_allan) for the very generous sample.
