OUR RHUM AGRICOLE CASK FINISH PROJECT
Rich with spice and dark toffee, this small-batch limited edition brings a taste of the Caribbean to Speyside. Our craftsmen have always matured Glen Moray in many different casks, for a wide selection of tastes. Keen to explore further, they took whisky aged in American oak and filled it into Rhum Agricole casks from Martinique's St James distillery - the No. 1 Rhum Agricole in the world - where it would age another two years. While other rums are made with molasses, Rhum Agricole is made from fresh sugar cane juice for a deeper flavour. Uniting the sweet, spicy notes of its casks with our fruity Speyside style, results in a single malt of candied depth, spice and surprising intensity, which promises to intrigue...
