Whisky Reviews for Glen Moray 2008 ANHA
4 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 85.67 points
- Simple fruity (pear and mirabelle), malty and spicy (pepper, bitter almonds) Malt with vanilla, light yeast acid and surprisingly bitter (coffee) oak. Great combination that never gets boring despite its simplicity. Almost unadulterated Glen Moray with a slight barrel influence - great thing as a Moray fan.
- This really does not recommend itself - the palate is the strongest aspect. Coming back to it after trying the other whiskies it has lost some of its brash character, so it improves a few points. For a better bottling look to ANHA's sister bottling of Cask 27.
vinegar sharpness, kitchen cleaner
initially extremely overpowering at full strength, with repeated sips it starts to get a creamy texture
medium-long; malt notes, slight ginger note does suggest hogshead, saccharine aftertaste - some chemical aftertaste
- This is an honest and simple Whisky. Quite fruite and malty.
I found some light sournotes (like wine) what I like. Of course vanilla and caramell. Liked it!
- Nose: Very light aromas of light sour fruits initially struggle somewhat with the approximately 55% alcohol. Here are first aromas of apples, quinces, unripe pear and light grape, behind bitter almond, jelly banana, orange zest, rapeseed, accompanied again and again by sour notes, with a little water, the fruits are sweeter towards grape
Taste: Undiluted already surprisingly accessible, spice, some pepper, barely fruit, vanilla, baked fruit, almost incompatible with the nose, with a little bit of water I felt it felt sharper, more pepper
Finish: medium with coffee notes, surprisingly mild and less "warming" than expected, pleasant but a bit one-dimensional
