  1. karloff scored this whisky 76 points Specialist

    This was a sample courtesy of Peatbogger and Slainte.
    I am not a fan of Glen Moray and this doesn't change anything.
    If I had a full bottle, experimenting with water and oxidation might change things but it seems like hard work.

      Been busy drinking a Tullibardine first fill bourbon all weekend so let's finish on one.
      Vanilla, honey Dew, citrus, carnation flower, green apples and white grapes.
      With water and a generous amount there is plenty of the above but a lot more clearer.
      More sweeter and more citrus.

      Wow! This packs a serious punch, lots of burn, not pleasant at all.
      Plus it is quite bitter and dry.
      With water the punch isn't going away and I don't want to risk drowning it.
      So it still isn't what I would call pleasurable.
      It's not as bitter and not as dry.
      Flavour wise it's been killed.

      The calm after the storm is much better, it comes out from hiding and there is fruit, spice and herbs.
      I had to add more water and the finish is just bitter citrus and unfortunately it's too long.

    My first Glen Moray, but after this - definitely not my last.

      Heavy speyside notes; apples, pear and caramel. I also get heavy notes of whipped cream and lemon/lemon peel. You get a really distinct bourbon smell too. After a small taste and some time I get notes of peach and grapefruit. After even more time the pears totally dominate and push the apple notes away. All the way towards the end I get icing sugar, vanilla cream and honey. After 2 teaspoons of water the fruitiness gets a slightly lighter and I get something more reminiscent of banana strawberry and even more lemon.

      Explosion! In the beginning I struggle to find anything besides caramel, apples and malt sugar. A very heavy mouthfeel, nice and oily. Water brings out more fruits like apples and pears, and it can take a lot of water! Toffee, more apples and a slight bitterness. Vanilla ice cream and banana. Towards the end and approaching the finish I get oak, more toffee and a very distinct pineapple note. This really changes a lot with time and water.

      The finish is long, and very warm, both before and after adding water. Caramel and toffee dominate the finish in the beginning, but after adding water I get more apples, banana and pineapple.

    A sample courtesy of Slàinte Mhath.
    Glen Moray is not the first I reach for, their OB's within reasonable price are not that exciting.
    So I was curious what a single cask at 60% ABV could deliver.
    • Nose
      86 86
      First off, there's absolutely no tell that this is 60% it might as well have been 48.
      Herbal and vegetal. Light citrus and a hint of vanilla.
      Initially a bit closed.
      Water brings more sweet fruit to the surface and make it quite a bit more interesting. Even some sea salt.
    • Taste
      88 88
      There's definitely more punch to the palate, but it doesn't burn.
      Tasty citrus, grapefruit.
      Some coffee-toffee notes.
      Water is recommended, and it can take a lot.
      The bolder bits arrive later but are amplified and more defined.
    • Finish
      86 86
      Sweet and warm.
      As strange as it sound water makes it a lot more herbal dry at the very end.

    Quick hit review.

    MaltPrat's highly anticipated second release, so let's dive right into it! Herbal citrus, sage and vanilla are leading the nose, followed by pastries, marzipan and hazelnuts. Strong flavors on the palate, ranging from pineapple, ginger and roasted coffee to salted caramel, grapefruit and eucalyptus. Water is your friend. Fresh herbs and lemon zest linger in the sugar-coated finish. A prime example that Glen Moray can do better than the OBs!

  5. Aetius scored this whisky 90 points Expert Senior

    Some details: Estimate for number of bottles was off, so true number is 211, not 213 as it says on the label. Second, label says bottled Aug 2021, but true bottling date is 13 Oct 2021, due to Brexit-related delays.
