Scotch Whisky is known the world-over by the Brand names of large blending companies. These blends are the mixture of the products of various distilleries which were originally independent family owned units. Until the middle of the 20th century there were many small firms that bottled and sold the pure product of the local distilleries. Since Victorian times the firm of William Cadenhead has provided this service.However a diminution of public interest caused the small bottling companies to close down. Only a small handful of distilleries still remain in the ownership of their founding families and even fewer of the bottling companies remain active, William Cadenhead is one of the notable survivors.
Glen Moray has a long wonderful history and it is a brand we are all (or should be) quite familiar with. The distillery was established in 1897 then closed in 1910 then reopened again in the 1920’s. The distillery is found in the town of Moray near Elgin and is bounded by the Moray Firth to the north. Distilling in this area is a major local industry and the Glen Moray distillery has always played a big part in local employment at the distillery and also preparing the ingredients which are grown locally. You should expect oatmeal, shortbread, blackcurrants and a lemony grassy flavour, A splash of water and there is a wonderful hint of heather.
This independent bottle by Cadenhead’s has been matured in two ex Bourbon Hogsheads for 17 years and bottled at 55.8% abv with no chillfiltration. It was distilled in 1998 and bottled in 2015. Only 504 bottles were produced of this very tasty whisky.
