  1. riekio scored this whisky 91 points Expert Senior

    Fruity, musty and wood shavings on the nose. Loads of honey and fruits on the palate. Kiwi stands out to me on the finish, but along with a bitter note which I will call kiwi skin. and spice. Overall quite pleasant. Quince jelly is prominent to me with water, which it takes well

      Dried fruits, unripened green bananas, peppercorn, some plasticine. Has a weird burnt plastic smell, which makes it just slightly off-putting.
    • Taste
      91 91
      Quite a bit of wood spice. Very sweet, tinned peaches and pineapples, and some grass, aloe, hay, and clay.
    • Finish
      90 90
      Quite oaky and dry, with a sweet aftertaste. Cherry cola and sweet cranberry juice.

      Serge scored this a 94 points. I don't see it as that great.

    Thanks whiskyCon for this lovely dram.
    • Nose

      Lovely old school sherry malt. Elegant toffee, milk chocolate, plenty of dried fruits like plums and dates, with a whiff of wood smoke and tobacco leaf. After a while, some metallic note and nail polish. The nose is so harmonious in complexity, you can nose it all day without getting bored.

      The nose transfer to the palate so coherently, absolutely a beauty! Lovely arrival with that old school sherry sweetness, balanced with the right amount of oakiness and nuttiness. The dried fruits really hits the right spot, and the oranges is really nice.
    • Finish
      90 90
      Slightly nutty and dry, with orange peel, some oakiness and oranges.

  13. el Gato scored this whisky 93 points Connoisseur

    Oh my what a dream dram. Dark, yet fresh. Perfect combination in a sherry dram. Yet another lovely sherry Expression from Moray. Underestimated distillery. Great the way the distillate comes through With fresh fruits, Strawberries and the earthly notes comes through. Love it.

      Marzipane. Red berries. Cinnamon. Pear. Vanilla and banana. Next sip The Strawberries are more distinct. Orange marmelade. Peaches and nutty. Then more Camphor and menthol. Earthly notes, apricots and liquerice. After 15 mins, more dark nottes again With raisins, blackcurrants and some oaky notes.
    • Taste
      93 93
      Not very thick texture. More of the red berries at first. Oranges marmelade and soft spices. Some of that lovely 'old bottle syndrome' shines through the sherry wall. Pears, kiwis and apricots. Sweet liqueruce
    • Finish
      93 93

    Note by Serge Valentin from whiskyfun.com:

    Glen Moray 1974/2002 ‘Manager’s Choice’ (53.4%, OB, hand bottled, 676 bottles)  The distillery manager was Ed Dodson at that time. Colour: deep gold. Nose: oh my! Another world. Oils and saps plus dried fruits and many herbs and teas. Tangerine marmalade, lime tree blossom, mirabelles, quinces, honeysuckle, acacia honey, candle wax, humidor… This is magnificent! With water: totally superlative. Pollen, old menthol syrup, barley water, furniture polish, Spanish ham, old wooden cabinets, a beehive… I totally adore this nose. Mouth (neat): extraordinary. Superb notes of cigars, patchouli, litchi liqueur, various honeys, long-forgotten liqueurs from small countries (certainly some arracks), earthy spices, chartreuse… With water: ooh, more herbal teas, hawthorn, honeysuckle, orange blossom, wormwood, anise… Wow oh wow oh wow! Astounding complexity. Finish: medium, but oh-so refined and elegant. Cakes, teas, liqueurs… In short, life! Comments: you could write a whole novel about this kind of whisky. Not a surprise, but, well, yeah, a surprise. What a cask – a refill sherry butt, I suppose. Plain and pure magic. SGP:661 - 94 points.

    GLENMORAY 1974-2002 28yo OB MANAGER'S CHOICE 53.4% ​​one of 676 bottles · Scented caramel, Orange, Sherry with a little brandy but slightly brandy like, slightly mint, dark tea, ripe melon, dry apricot, sweet chestnut, as good a sense of wheat, moist moisture, rich and complex. There was a slightly chlorine-like feeling and faint sulfurly just after opening the plug, but it became a bother in about a week. · Taste Sherry feeling somewhat slender, orange liqueur, thick fruity such as peach or dry apricot and ripe melon, comfortable with mint, wheat feeling, barrel woodiness and tannin are getting thicker well. There is Pete in the back. Sherry has a moderate sweetness. Somewhat viscous, quite rich and complex. Medium to full body. · Reverberations Orange liqueur and sherry with a sense of relaxation, rather long lasting accompanied by a little peat. - The moisturized scent further enhances the sense of brandy, and the fruits such as peach and orange are strengthened. Shelly's slimy feeling softens. There is no heavy feeling, but the balance does not collapse. I feel like an official bottle of old conditioning water. · Overall a few impressions of Sherry's clinging, but rich and complicated male. There is a sense of stability that seems to be official. With the time since opening, the discomfort of off-flavor and Sherry has disappeared, the feeling of peat has increased and they have fused. Pretty good impression. http://www.whiskylink.com/?p=20610

    Glen Moray 30/04/1974 - 01/05/2002 28yo OB Distillery Manager 's Choice 70cl 53.4% ​​Vol. Bottle No. 606/676 matured in oak casks and further mellowed in an ex - Oloroso Sherry Butt I went to ATOCKPAD and memorized it, synchronized with Evernote, stopped making a tasting record and chose another method. The first memorable Glen Moray 1974! Well, if it is a million city level yet it is still OK, in the city of Tokyo Osaka level, carrying an IPAD without carrying bags makes it a troublesome feeling to take over the train as many times as I carry it, but I have a bag I dislike it, so from this cup, I will make a note to ATOKPAD at IPHONE, synchronize with Evernote and make a tasting record! As you can see, it is really comfortable and easy to carry.It is easier to type in too much characters than the anguish of Android's typing before switching to IPHONE 5. Stupid drinking beep saying such a thing at this time! Well, leave such a thing, this Glen Moray 1974! Color: splendid gloss that makes you imagine gorgeousness rather than simpleness.Is a calm elegance that is reminiscent of adult flavor rare cheesecake & blueberry sauce is good Nose: fair and mellow.Cose like a cognac, refreshing grape Gish. Attack : Glen Moray Glen Moray Glen Moray The unique countryside is quite modest, but it is not strange perfume and it is exquisitely intertwined with grape gish and wheat straw! Body: Gorgeous & mellow tight feeling overrides the simplicity of Glen Moray, a middleweight tightened rather than a metabolic heavyweight Taste: It seems to be a great match for raisin butter and bread.The flavor of berry type is reasonably good. Milky & silky of milk buttery kind of milky & silky will also entertain and entertain.It is not nutty than nuts makes you feel the gorgeous who left this work Glen Moray Finish: From this one glass of moray, real one The bitterness of nuts is stronger than that.This fruit skin and water sheepskin are beautifully dispersed in summer color elegantly Ecstatic finish! Although rustic wheat was not a bursting Glen Moray, Manager 's Choice was pretty much a favorite taste. https://whisky2010.usukeba.com/u/whisky2010/1fyharsugjtsyk
