Cadenhead’s 175th Anniversary ‘Small Batch’ Glen Moray-Glenlivet 24 Year Old Cask Strength 700ml 50.9%
Ex-bourbon cask whisky that yielded 684 bottles.
Cask Type: Bourbon barrels
Bottler: Wm Cadenhead
From the extensive collection of W.M. Cadenhead ‘Small Batch’ independent bottlings comes this 24-year-old single malt distilled by the Glen Moray Distillery. They have been crafting whisky since 1897 in the ancient town of Elgin, the capital of the Speyside whisky region, on what was once the Elgin West Brewery site on the banks of the River Lossie.
The whisky was laid to rest for 24 years in in a trio of bourbon hogsheads and then bottled at cask strength in 2017. As with all Cadenhead’s expressions, the small batch series is non-chill filtered with no added colouring.
