Glen Moray Elgin Classic Chardonnay Cask Finish

Glen Moray 10yo was our first single malt whisky back in the days, the rich aromas of vanilla and banana enthused us to discover the world of whisky.

Sadly, over the years, Glen Moray disappeared into oblivion for us personally. Until we found this Elgin Classic Chardonnay Cask Finish.

When it comes to wine itself, we drink red wine most of the time. If someone offers me a glass of white, I will choose Sauvignon Blanc over Chardonnay everytime. But when it comes to cask maturation, Chardonnay suits very well. Here’s why:

Tasting notes


Vanilla, cookie dough, sweet grapes and candy, champagne (obviously), butter and vanilla ice-cream.


Soft and creamy, more floral notes, vanilla and oak, plus cherry blossom. At the end, an earthy taste develops.


Medium-long and earthy finish, with baked mushrooms, chestnuts, vanilla ice-cream, cinnamon and lots of creamy fruits.

It’s a summer palate with an autumn finish, very intriguing!

From the first to the last sip (yes we killed it already) we enjoyed this whisky. For us it felt like we were drinking a Chardonnay with more alcohol. Which isn’t bad at all, because with all these flavours we think this Glen Moray will fulfill your needs. It is also a great whisky to drag your wine-loving/whisky-hating friend into our world of whisky. You should give it a try for sure, believe us.
