    54.7%

  • Age:

    12 Years

  • Intro:

    This is an independent bottling of Glen Moray spirit by the Jewish Whisky Company's Single Cask Nation line of expressions. It is 12 years old and spent the first 6 years maturing in ex-bourbon and then was moved to first fill Madeira casks for the remaining 6 years. It is bottled at cask strength and received no coloring or filtering.

  • Nose:

    Rich, sweet, syrupy fruits. Cherry, currant, blackberry. Sweet honey. Faint tobacco.

  • Taste:

    Medium mouth feel, no heat. Sweet, jammy, fruits. Faint tobacco, nice clove characteristic. Jammy structured with some spice to reign it in. Surprisingly nice oak body, as well.

  • Finish:

    Long, lots of stewed fruits and sweet. Super jammy, loads of berries, some vanilla cake and cocoa.

  • Overall:

    If there was a whiskey for Smuckers to stake their name on, this would be the one. It was super enjoyable, brought a surprising amount of richness to the table and also delivered well in not being cloyingly sweet or fruity. I think that 12 years in first fill Madeira may have brought this overboard, so I'm thankful for whoever decided to make this a 50:50 maturation, using first fill Madeira for the second half. Once again, a unique, and delicious SCN selection.
