An 11-year-old Glen Moray from Valinch & Mallet released as part of their 'Young Masters' series, this has seen the inside of a Manzanilla sherry cask.
Drawn from cask #5775, there are 365 bottles at 53.4%. Distilled 2008 and bottled 2020.
A meatier expression from the distillery, the sherry cask is prominent, not dominant. Light treacle and almonds on the nose, golden syrup and caramelised citrus on the palate leading to a soft, medium length finish.
Valinch & Mallet are an Italian bottler of Scotch whiskies, one of the latest in a long history of cask selection and supply between the two countries. They often put an emphasis on spirit character over wood dominance.
