    [June, 2019] A new release by this small German bottler is a must try (as a sample)...

    ...and while almost all of Glen Moray's recent wine cask and peat experiments are not to my liking at all - this one is! Glen Moray produces a rather light malt that cannot stand the bold flavours of heavy peat or wine casks hence it is not recognisable in such maturations. But in a high-quality bourbon cask Glen Moray is able to play to its strengths - and this bottling is an excellent example of that. If you never tried Glen Moray so far, this is a good start.
    • Nose
      89 89
      The colour is pale gold and the nose offers a fresh fruity and honeyed profile with delicious banana, mango, green apples and many more. This is the fine traditional Glen Moray nose that I really like and it improves significantly upon breathing. The spices (vanilla, peppers) grow stronger and add a tasty topping to the fruit salad. No off-note or imbalance that I can find.
    • Taste
      88 88
      The taste delivers exactly what the nose promised: A delicious and well-balanced set of fruity-honeyed malt driven and vanilla-spicy wooden flavours that combine to an impression of a banana split after the pepper shaker on the table was used to pep up the ice cream. I like that! It is not very complex but hey - this dram just got adult...
    • Finish
      87 87
      The dram arrives warming and nicely coating on the palate without distracting moments. The finish is of medium length and adds more spices and a note of burnt caramel. The tannins grow a little stronger towards the end but they never get unpleasant. Water releases more waxy and floral aromas in the nose and smoothes the taste further (like molten ice cream). I like this dram both neat and reduced at various levels.

    Many ripe bananas. Then also vanilla ice cream and other bourbon notes.

    Really nice malt.
