  1. Marko_I did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    Very tasty, light whisky, which is often "overlooked", at a bargain price (25-30 €). Would be a pity if that disappears.
    • Nose
      fresh-fruity - citrus, apple, white wine ... plus light dryness, some cinnamon and nutmeg, nut
    • Taste
      first fruity-sweet (somewhere between gold bears and canned fruit cocktail), then creamy-nutty, caramel, malt, peanut butter, and again nutmeg
    • Finish
      medium long, mild, velvety dry, a little green apple and nutmeg

  2. Greenkeeper scored this whisky 83 points Expert Senior

    One of the bottlings, where one can not shake the feeling that they would be rated much better if they had been tested blind - or would they sold for twice the price - or would be 46% on the label.
    Underrated - that's for sure. This is also indicated by the many good textual valuations with surprisingly few points in comparison.
    I was surprised that only 40% did not bother. For me a clear sign of a good body and what you call a "rich". Because the "drown" not synonymous with stronger dilution. Very much whisky for very little money.
    And if such a cheap bottling can be so good in relation to their price, you should come to many, many current bottlings difficult to ponder. Simple enjoyment, but still great drinking pleasure for very little money.

  3. Koalafant scored this whisky 75 points Expert Senior

    A pleasant surprise (75/100)
    • Nose
      Dry fruit with hints of gooseberry, green apple kiwi and lime ... some grass
    • Taste
      Full-bodied with notes of heavy white wine and liqueur as well as a subtle touch of resin
    • Finish
      long, dry and slightly bitter

  4. schero scored this whisky 82 points Expert Senior

    Quick to sniff, drink quickly and immediately nachkippen, then the super. But it's nothing to spend a lot of time with. But you do not have to expect that at the price ...
    • Nose
      Sweet strawberries, blackberries, passion fruit, behind it comes through the alcohol, with time more and more similar to a Obstler
    • Taste
      Obstler, very fruity but also directly young and the alcohol is weak, but easy to taste
    • Finish
      Very short, but also very fruity

    This Glen Moray still enjoys an age statement, i.e. 10 years. It got a finish on Chardonnay wine casks. That particular grape can be found all over the world, but primarily in Burgundy, France. I was unable to find out how long said finish was, but I presume several months.

    Oh, this nose is surpringly fruity with peach, apricots, fresh apples, ripe grapes, gooseberries, butternut and juicy pears. What a pleasant surprise. Hint of freshly sawn planks. Completely devoid of spices, though. Hint of vanilla and some… white wine.

    The arrival is rather watery. It could do with a little more body. The grapes come first, then a slight metallic touch before the spices kick in. Think vanilla and a mild pepper. But unfortunately it is a lot less fruity than the nose promised. The apples return, but towards the end it turns somewhat dry. From the second sip on I even get a floral edge. Lavender? Violets? Darn, that is a pity.

    The finish is, in all honesty, rather short.

    It all started so promising on the nose, but it could not keep that promise on the palate. Just under 35 EUR, but then I would rather get the Port Cask Finish. Thanks, Pat!

    Pleasant sweetness, light fruitiness and some spicy wood. Unfortunately, the finish is very short. For the price of around 30 €, this whisky is absolutely recommended!

  7. André scored this whisky 84 points Connoisseur

    A surprisingly fine and fresh dram. Is also very nice found by people who indicate not to love whisky, but are lovers of (chardonnay) wine. The character of that wine is apparently very good in the whisky. And for a relatively low amount a very serious drink.

  9. MasterOfPuppets scored this whisky 85 points Expert Junior

    A good drop. At a blind tasting, I thought he was 46% for a 12 year old whisky. That it is a Weisweinfinish I have realized that it is a standard bottling, I would have never suspected.
    In his price range he is definitely one of the best for me.
    • Nose
      Mandarin, apple, peach, slightly nutty, basil, grape, blood orange, some nutmeg and cinnamon
    • Taste
      Mandarin, oak, carnation, tobacco, apple, grape, slightly sour, cinnamon, grapefruit
    • Finish
      Medium long, spicy then it will be fruity

    Without water, on the nose there is lots of cereal sweetness, some menthol/mint and a little light toffee. Like porridge topped with melted sugar.

    The first taste is quite bitter, before all the cereal sweetness comes flushing through, finishing again on a slightly bitter vinous note.

    There's an interesting dialectic between sweet cereal notes and slightly astringent wine-cask notes. I'm not getting much in the way of fruit.

    The finish is longish, with a sweetened breakfast tea outro.

    With water the nose is fresher and lighter. more mint and cut grass. Water brings out a touch of marmalade in the taste.
