Glen Moray Cabernet Elgin Bottling Note
A no age statement cask-finished single malt from Glen Moray, this fruity expression was released as part of the Elgin Classic bottling series. Initially matured in oak, the Speysider was then transferred to casks which previously held Cabernet Sauvignon wine for a finishing period. Because of the dark red fruit notes from the finish, we reckon this would do well as a postprandial sipper alongside some dark chocolate.
