This is one of the bottles that started our whisky collection, before we even realized we are collecting.  We tasted the Glenmorangie Lasanta at our favorite restaurant and loved it and John brought a bottle home soon after to remind us of a great evening.

These past couple of weekend I have been testing a lot of whisky and cheese pairings again.  After the craziness that was June and July, weekends have slowed down and lefts some space for experimenting. Sitting back, grabbing a few whiskies, opening up some interesting cheese and in general just relaxing a bit.   I tried a goats cheese and bourbon pairings, but that elicited a rather negative response from John.

Until we needed a whisky for a cheese tasting and the Glen Moray popped up when I was doing research. We tried it with a creamy Lancashire cheese and loved not only the pairing, but also the whisky. The Glen Moray Distillery is a Speyside distillery situated on the banks of the River Lossie in Elgin. Glen Moray started life as West Brewery and converted into a distillery in 1897.
