    I've said it before and I do it again; these Glen Moray's are bang-for-your-buck whisky's with lots of bourbon barrel fruitiness in it. A bit underrated in my view. Lots of ratings, but only one proper tasting note till now. Let's double that! A very sympathetic distillery by the way with a little cozy visitor center and affordable fill-your-own bottlings. This bottle was released during the WB Gathering 2018.
    • Nose
      Lots of fresh juicy bourbon barrel characteristics of toasted oak, vanilla and honey. Followed with citric notes of kiwi fruit, pineapple cubes and orange peel. Also lemon curd, ripe apricots and peaches. Touch of sandal wood at the background.
    • Taste
      Tropical fruit alarm now! Papaya, lychees, blood oranges and kumquats. Delightful bitter-sweetness of pink grapefruits. Some biscuits and shortbread as well. Custard powder intermingled with some ginger later on. Hints of roasted chestnuts. Not overly complex but very enjoyable to taste.
    • Finish

    Palate: some sweet sour fruits, lemon. Like the nose water makes it heavier, deeper, a little more syrupy.

    Finish: nothing fancy. seems like the finish is slightly rougher with water... whoa, wait a second, little bit of heartburn there... okay it's passed, onward!

    Final thoughts: I'm reluctant to put a rating on this because the sample was too small. It was a full shot but not enough for proper water trials (I think this might have done well with some experimentation with water levels). It's a solid enough whisky, not mind-blowing but solid, I guess I'll go with an...
