New Moray celebrates with chocolate
The Glen Moray Distillery has released the latest expression of its Speyside Single Malt range – the Glen Moray Classic Port Cask Finish.
The resulting whisky combines the Glen Moray Classic Single Malt with the spicy, plum, wine-like elements from the port pipes, according to the producer.
Master distiller Graham Coull, said of the release, “The rich wine flavours have combined with vanilla oak notes to produce a whisky which is well balanced and full of character, with a lingering finish of honey sweetness combined with spices and subtle hints of dark chocolate and leather.”
And to celebrate the launch of the Classic Port Cask Finish, Glen Moray is collaborating with the master chocolatier, Paul A. Young, to produce dark chocolate truffles hand crafted with the Glen Moray Port Cask Finish.
Young said, “Chocolate and whisky are always on my chocolate menu but getting the balance of flavours and richness can be tricky. Glen Moray Classic Port Cask Finish has just the right amount of soft grapey fruit and strong finish which allows me to blend and create a perfectly balanced truffle.
“It is my 2015 whisky of choice and hopefully will feature in a number of different chocolate recipes.”
