Glen Moray 2003 Chardonnay Cask 7670 Review

18th August 2020
Review of Glen Moray 2003 Chardonnay Single Cask No. 7670

Glen Moray 2003 Chardonnay Cask 7670The Glen Moray 2003 Chardonnay Single Cask No. 7670 is one of three new single cask whiskies launched by the Speyside distillery in July this year.

Distilled in 2003 and fully matured in a ex-Chardonnay wine cask then bottled as it came from the cask, non-chill filtered, naturally coloured and at a cask strength of 58.9% 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: Sweet vanilla toffee infused with orange, pineapple and sultanas, a little charred oak and a gentle pepperiness.

Taste: A deliciously juicy, slightly barley sugared, fruitiness fills the mouth, raisin, sultana and pineapple, the intensity of which is boosted by the flavoursome ABV bottling strength, vanilla and a little peppery spice join the party.

Finish: The juicy fruit gives way to some lovely spicy vanilla and  peppery oak spice which lingers for an age.

Comment: If you are a fan of the Glen Moray NAS Chardonnay Cask or 10 Year Old Chardonnay Cask then you will love this, the 17 years maturing and then being bottled at cask strength has raised this way above these two bottling's, both in quality and pleasure, exactly what a Distillery Edition should be.

SMW Score 89/100
