Whisky Reviews for Machrie Moor Second Edition
11 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 81.46 points
Coastal maritime peat, not quite up to Islay level, but rich and salty.
Mild citric with notes of yellow fruit.
Peat is not as prominent as on the nose.
Briney, salty, slightly sour.
Followed by rich fruityness, pineapple, peach and a little grapefruit freshness.
Drying light peatyness, some salty seaweed.
- Nose:- Warm thick wave of peat, profound yet subtle. Warm almond bread, coastal note.
Palate:- Marmalade sweet and balance with touch of peat and spiciness on the palate. Creamy.
Finish:- Persistent trace of bitterness on throat, medium length. Lightly burn.
— at The Whisky Bar, Kuala Lumpur.
- Very similar to the first release. Just a bit more sherry influence and malt, but also more salt.
Orange, peat, malt, vanilla sugar and peach.
Vanilla, pepper, peat, orange, peach and salt.
Orange, peach, peat, marshmallow and salty.
- What, you dare to call it "peated", it's a joke? Well that said, it's not too bad, but barely better than an arran 10 or an original arran.
Very finely smoked, but then very finely ... A little lemon, some wood, some vanilla. Very fresh at first and then heavier. Strange.
Rather melted, full of cooked autumn fruits.
Very sweet green fruits
- Arran Machrie Moor Ed. 2, 46%. Malty and
fruity aroma, smoke, pear, vanilla, grapefruit, lime and tar. Vanilla
sweet taste, smoke, pepper, salt liqourice and malt. Medium long, malty
and tary end.
Salty aromas with notes of apple, pineapple, peat, malt and coconut
Delicious flavors of peat, apple, vanilla and subtle hints of citrus and flowers. Starts acid and slowly but surely into a sweet taste. Complex and well balanced,
A salty aftertaste with a strong presence of spices. A finish with the unmistakable flavor of peat central.
- The nose was terrible, but on the palate and finish, this turned out to be a pleasant whisky.
The nose is rather closed. It starts slightly salty on smoked halibut, olive oil and a bit of smoke. Some dried grasses. You will need to look hard to find any fruit. Patience delivers some coconut and apples. And a touch of vanilla. But unfortunately, it does nothing for me, this nose.
It redeems itself somewhat on the palate. A lot of citrus, followed by apples, pears, vanilla, violets, nicely countered by olive oil and stockfish (you know, the dried fish that you can nibble on for hours). Towards the end a slight bitterness as if from grapefruit emerges, as does a salty tang.
The finish, medium in length, emphasizes the mild peat and the brine.
