Glen Moray Elgin Classic Chardonnay Cask Finish, 40%

Price: $30 Issue: Summer 2018 Reviewer: Gavin Smith

After 6 to 7 years of maturation in bourbon casks, this spent several months in chardonnay white wine casks. The nose offers resinous wine notes, melon, grapefruit, and a hint of vanilla. Nutty on the palate, with orchard fruits, more vanilla, and milk chocolate. Peaches and a slightly oily note in the finish, with apples, nutmeg, and a sprinkling of black pepper.
