Whisky Reviews for Glen Moray 1960

4 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 91.19 points

  1. Xaver did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    • Nose
      Colour:
      Light amber. The darkest of the three.

      Nose:
      Dry, slightly salty caramel. A trace of vinegar (not meant to be derogatory) and fermented blackberries. Now the chocolate is also asserting itself nicely here. More towards whole milk. In the background I find something like hazelnut liqueur. With a little time in the glass, the lovage slowly gets through. And this waxy note is getting thicker and thicker. I mean find out some rosemary. In addition, a pleasant, not intrusive moist tobacco note. Cherry is coming through nicely now. He gets creamy. Reminds me just a moment ago of Black Forest cherry pie. With more air, the colleague also appears more and more sedate. Leather is becoming increasingly clear. Marzipan opens up. In addition, warm plum jam. With even more half an hour more air, the soup bouillon cube comes through nicely.
    • Taste
      Tart and spicy start. Here, too, the creamy mouthfeel immediately. Set, dark fruit sweetness with a trace of dry tobacco. Almonds and slightly rancid oil. This one has something meaty. Juniper and slightly earthy. Just reminds me of a dark beer sauce for roasting. In addition, laurels. Ripe blackberries get their way with the second sip. Chocolate is now following suit. Has something of warm pudding with herbs.
    • Finish
      Medium to long. Set sweetness. Very creamy. Subtle spice. And nice and chocolatey.

  2. Dram Dracula scored this whisky 91 points Connoisseur

    Second time trying this bottle that was opened a few days ago.
    • Nose
      91 91
      Herbal, slight mint and honey, with some white fruits coming out after a couple minutes in glass.
    • Taste
      92 92
      Good thickness, somewhat oily in viscosity, with all bunch of wonderful herbs and liqueurs. Honeyed tea. Pears, green apples, a bit of sweet and sour. Not a fruit bomb, but more in the line of a 1973 Speyside. Some compare an old official Glen Moray to an old official Macallan but the latter I think is usually more complex with better expression of fruits and that oh so good peach rose notes.
    • Finish
      89 89
      Not long but there is lingering herbalness and a bit grassy and hay-like at the end.

    The one that Serge scored 91 is a different 1960 vintage bottled around 1995. This page refers to the one bottled in 1987. And as far as I know, there is also one bottled in 1986.

  4. checkpointuk scored this whisky 93 points Connoisseur

    http://kaypingers-whiskyblog.de/frontend/fullarticle.php?id=275 Color: full gold Nose: Full of sherry with aromas of apricot, berries, elder and orange. There is leather, wax and delicate vanilla. More and more flavors of Earl Gray Tea develop - all together in an incredibly delicious combination! Taste: Soft and fruity, mild and spicy, but also peppery-malty. Again a dominant apricot fruit in combination with orange, some wood, herbs and black tea. Finish: Long - fruity and mild, the apricot also reigns on the finish. With the same notes of the taste fading away. 93 points (Nose: 94 / taste: 92 / finish: 92)
