  1. hs305 scored this whisky 83 points Connoisseur

    [October, 2018] I had a dram during an exclusive tasting session at Glen Moray distillery. They said this matured in bourbon casks and it was reduced to 50% abv before they transferred it into the PX sherry cask for a 3.5 years finish.

    As with all the other drams of this tasting I have the impression that the Glen Moray whisky did not really integrate with the finishes very well - it seems as if the different aromas and flavours fight each other. This is average-only stuff, at best and for sure completely overpriced. As a drinker I would not buy a bottle regardless of its price tag...
    • Nose

      The nose offers a slightly immature (alcoholic) and un-balanced profile as if the sherry is not integrated into the whisky at all. There is a minor cardboardy impression too, that is not to my liking.
    • Taste
      84 84
      The initial mouthfeel is almost non-existent (is there any mouthfeel at all?) and the taste is completely unremarkable according to my taste buds. No obvious flaws but no highlights either, I would call this average at best.
    • Finish
      83 83
      The finish is short and sweet and unimpressive (like the nose and taste) but there are no distracting feelings either, at least. Water turns the dram smoother but not better...

    Water: no, he does not need

    Conclusion: not a particularly complex malt, the age you do not really notice, even the oak is restrained. But he is very tasty, even more so by the rather low alcohol content. And the finish is well taken, ornately PX sherry, without this drowning or covering the whisky
    • Nose
      87 87
      successful combination of the sweet PX notes (red grape must, a little nut, dark sweetness, sugar cane) and the Destilleriecharakter (cereals, minerals, earthy), every now and then seems a bit damp and musty cardboard through, also some pepper is there
    • Taste
      88 88
      velvety soft, but not oily, slightly creamy PX, grape must, dates and plum, dark caramel
    • Finish
      87 87
      quite short for the age, here too the well-integrated PX notes, rounded off by oak spice, slightly dry at the back, but no bitterness
