Part II: Glen Moray à la Belge

Our 2nd creation: Three carefully selected casks from Glen Moray distillery, finished on a Belgian Kriek butt of Cantillon.

An exclusive bottling of a Speyside Single Malt Whisky on a cask of one of the most traditional of Belgian beers, specially selected for you.

The Concept

For the ‘Glen Moray à la Belge’ we married 3 casks of 11 year old Speyside Single Malt Scotch whisky in a Kriek Cantillon butt. This marriage took place on 3th October 2018.

After about 1 year and 5 months we put an end to the finishing period and found the time ripe to bottle this unique, bold, aromatic whisky with a Belgian twist.

 

Because the 3 Glen Moray casks didn’t fit completely in the Cantillon butt we also have some of the original Glen Moray Single Malt Scotch whisky available as it was before we finished it. This gives you a really good idea on the effect the finish had on the whisky.
