  1. Buecherwurm scored this whisky 82 points Member Senior

    Glen Moray Whisky Broker WID: 126897
    Abv. 52.9%, finish in Oloroso Sherry Butt, 10 years
    Nose: at first you have to smell a good dose of alcohol, behind it caramelized apple pie, raisins, lilac, dry cereal, husks
    Taste: Fudge and pear spread, really a hefty amount of caramel, for my taste for an easy drinking whisky a bit too much bitterness
    Finish: more caramel and barely bitterness
    Conclusion: Not really complex and a thick portion of caramel, on the palate a bit too bitter. I know better alternatives. Does not really do anything wrong, but it does not inspire.

  6. LittlePeat scored this whisky 89 points Expert Junior

    Color: Clear grape juice
    • Nose
      89 89
      Very sweet grape juice in the foreground. And behind it - apple juice. Still further back: Menthol fresh, malt coffee, clove, lavender. Overall, heavy fruity, but also fresh. But also quite alcoholic.
    • Taste
      89 89
      Tastes somewhere between a whisky and a (good) brandy. I certainly would not have recognized a Glen Moray here. Heavy grape sweetness, delicate oak, quite mild from alcohol, slight malt and floral notes.
    • Finish
      88 88
      Medium to (rather) long. Dextrose, tender oak, grapes, flowers.

      Conclusion: I still do not know what to think of it. There are definitely no missing notes, no musty, which is quite good for a Glen Moray. But if that was a whisky treat, I'm not sure yet.

      PS. Two days later: Now he tastes more like whisky. I think it's really tasty. Due to the moderate price almost an everyday dram. The notes mentioned above are joined by something slightly acidic. For some reason, my association is a bath towel soaked in white wine. After a few more tastings, I find it quite complex, as come out alternately many flavors, woodruff, turkish delight and anything else, which I can not exactly classify.

  7. LordBellamy scored this whisky 84 points Expert Senior

    with water: it is very lemony and the heather herbs are stressed much more, while the sherry flavors take a back seat, I like it better without water

    Conclusion: A rock-solid malt, which preserves the distillery character despite the sherry influence, but he is also nothing special
    • Nose
      malty basic character, slightly earthy / mineral, light fruit (apple) and a few oranges, heather honey, subtle sherry aromas such as nut and toffee, the oak is noticeable, even slightly discreet wood smoke comes through, the hollow alcohol is quite clear with menthol and pepper present
    • Taste
      surprisingly oily onset with a distinct sweetness, light sherry flavors, fruit, malt, vanilla, the oak is surprisingly well integrated
    • Finish
      medium length, interesting sweetness, also hardly oak, some ginger and licorice, no bitterness behind
