A special edition to celebrate 120 years of the Glen Moray Distillery – the first spirit ran from the stills on 13th September 1897. Mastery was blended by the fifth Master Distiller at Glen Moray, Graham Coull, using whisky from 5 different vintages: 1978 along with casks from the 1980s and 1990s.
Graham Coull describes the blend as follows, “The bourbon cask matured Glen Moray from the 1970s adds complexity and vintage oak character, with the port finished whisky from the 1980s bringing a sweeter character and spice. In addition to these, madeira casks from the 1990s and 2000s give Mastery a consistent backbone of flavour, with vanilla and toffee aromas sitting alongside darker coffee and chocolate notes. Finally, sherry casks from the late 1990s round off the complexity, adding a rich body and mouthfeel.”

A release of 1,000 bottles in September 2017.
