    Nice whisky, but I had hoped not to find any pepper with an 18-year-old Glen Moray. Present in the nose, taste and finish. In terms of taste, I would estimate him younger.

  5. 2ndSip scored this whisky 83 points Expert Senior

    Quite fruity on the nose, then more peppery-spicy on the palate.
    From an 18-year-old whisky but then little complexity.
    It's not bad, but you can get younger ones with more complexity for around 70 euros. Find even the 15 almost more complex and softer...
    [86 - 82 = good whisky -> get (second) bottle? Perhaps...]
    • Nose
      sweet, juicy apples, some apricots. Anything with a malty undertone. Slightly flowery notes - but more so in the background.
      Blossom honey, toffee and caramel as well as light vanilla aromas. The sweetness is generally there, but not overly sweet-acting.
      Out the back he gets a grassy hay note (still slightly wet, musty).
    • Taste
      peppery start, light fruits. After the spice, notes of marzipan and light chocolate emerge. The chocolate has a transition from white to brown to a tart dark chocolate.
      Second sip: soft, creamy-viscous, slightly peppery spiciness (for an 18 it has quite a strong alcoholic spiciness).
    • Finish
      medium length of fruit, tannins, oak spice.
      Belated hazelnut moment.
