(87 = very good to excellent whiskies definitely worth buying.) nose 21.5 taste 22.5 finish 21 balance 22. This malt and I have a lot in common. Firstly, it is where us Murrays get our name. And it also appears a lot younger than actually is… (Jim Murray’s Whisky Bible 2013)
Glen Moray distillery
À l’ouest d’Elgin, sur l’une des rives de la Lossie, se tient la distillerie Glen Moray. Elle se trouve quasiment à la Frontière du Speyside, dans une partie de la vallée de la Lossie qui est célèbre pour sa production d’orge.
La route originale dans Elgin (la capitale du Speyside) traverse le parc de la distillerie.
La distillerie Glen Moray est situé à proximité de l’historique Fort George, juste en dessous de la colline Gallowcrook (où, jusqu’à la fin du 17e siècle, les exécutions ont été effectuées).
The Bottler Hunter Laing – Douglas of Drumlanrig
Hunter Laing – a new company …… since the third generation
Although recently established and operational, Hunter Laing is a continuation of 60 years of experience and mastery in the Whisky.
Stewart Laing did give his middle name, Hunter, to form the name of the Company : Hunter Laing where he is joined by his sons Andrew and Scott, who brought in their own independent bottling company and its brand First Editions in Hunter Laing .
We are pleased to announce that the Douglas of Dumlanrig, First Editions, Sovereign, Hepburn’s Choice and Distiller’s Art in whisky and Kill Devil in single cask bottlings of Rum make part of the portfolio La Boutique du Chemin.
The Speyside is a region that forms a core within the Highlands and that stretches along the Spey River. It goes even further, far beyond the lands of the Spey. Thus, the distilleries placed along Livet, Fiddich, Avon, Lossie, Findhorn and Deveron are also considered as a part of the Speyside. As it is not a geological unit, the boundaries of that region have never been set and sometimes, one could argue about the region from which a distillery comes from. According to the way we establish the boundaries, 63 of the 90 distilleries still in operation in Scotland are in the Speyside.
