Glen Moray 2011 Vintage Peated Cabernet Sauvignon Cask Finish Fill Your Own Review

Glen Moray 2011 Vintage Peated Cabernet Sauvignon Cask Finish Fill Your Own Another epic Fill Your Own from the outstanding Glen Moray distillery. This distillery outpunches all the big boys and is beginning to get the recognition for the hard work by all those who work for it.

This is an interesting dram for me, as it is produced using heavily peated malt, very heaily peated by the palate, and then finished in Cabernet Sauvignon casks which is something I would normally avoid as wine finishes are somethign i tend to not get on well with.

Filled with fruits and toffee as usual, then lots of BBQ smoke, wet bonfire and cream, this is a flavour explosion and seriously one of the most fun whiskies i have tried in a long time.

maybe i need to be less worried about wine finishes.

Only available to buy at the distillery, whilst stocks last.

Thanks to The Whisky Wire for including me on this Tweet Tasting

Wet Bonfire, like putting green wood on the bonfire, juicy toffees wrapped in those fruity astro belts (without the sugary tangy coating, toasted blackcurrants and a hint of bbq'd banana

Palate

Ooooofffftttttttt thats a powerful smoky dram, that out islays many islays, but the peat is sweet, toffeed, covered in heather honey and Chantilly cream, astro belts, without the sour stuff again
