Frank brought this because it has a ‘39’ in it! A collective penny-dropping “aah” sound fills the room. I had this Moray before and liked it a lot if memory serves. Prompted, we are reminded by the Swissky Mafia that there’s lots of SMWS Glen Moray around because the former SMWS owners [Glenmorangie], own Glen Moray.
N: Today I find this a rich floral bourbon-driven malt with dry resinous oily jams and elderflowers in the main, but there’s plenty on offer - all joyous.
T: Whilst already sold on the floral oaky dunnage and elderflower notes, the journey continues in a floral, herbal, savoury liquorice direction. Tonight I find it [again] woody and perhaps also the Rosebank is still talking.
F: I noted a liquorice & cinnamon heat, no doubt my palate slowly acclimatising to whisky again despite this one’s low abv.
C: After checking, I did indeed love this last time [Blog:A-].
Today, it scores a B[+]. That’s the way it goes.
