Review of Glen Moray 2004 Burgundy Single Cask No. 213

Glen Moray 2004 Burgundy Cask 213The Glen Moray 2004 Burgundy Single Cask No. 213 is one of three new single cask whiskies launched by the Speyside distillery in July this year.

Distilled in 2004 and fully matured in a ex-Burgundy wine cask then bottled as it came from the cask, non-chill filtered, naturally coloured and at a cask strength of 60.1% ABV.

This single cask release is normally reserved exclusively for distillery visitors to purchase but due to the ongoing Covid-19 and travel restrictions in place the distillery has made all three of their Glen Moray 2020 Distillery Edition whiskies available to purchase via their Dial A Dram service, simply give them a call on +44 (01343) 550900 if you want to get hold of a bottle.

Priced at 85.

William Morrison's Tasting Notes:

Nose: A very mellow fruitiness with apricots, plum and a little orange citrus, milk chocolate, some very gentle sweet oak spice and a little almond lurking in the background

Taste: A luscious burst of slightly candied fruity flavours intermingled with milk chocolate, plum and ripe, red fruits such as cherry and raspberry, stewed apples.

Finish: Medium to longish, as the wave of fruit eases a slightly peppery mouthfeel develops then some late lemon zest.

Comment: A little shy on the nose but an absolute pleasure of a dram in the mouth and a great example of Glen Moray off its familiar beaten track, exactly what these distillery exclusive bottling's should be.

SMW Score 84/100
