  1. dRambo scored this whisky 91 points Connoisseur

    Blind I would never have typed Glen Moray - not even on Speyside - rather highlands and character. This is already the 2nd very old very great Moray SingleExBourbonCask which I like very much - because it has high quality and rough edges - not just easy drinking - then you miss the most - he wants time and a careful nose.
    • Nose
      Noble spicy sweet grass notes, wax and furniture polish meet honey over oak sawdust, crystalline lemon, coconut-vanilla cream, nutmeg, cinnamon, citrus oil, mint, orange juice, mango, yellow kiwi, melon, dried dates, black tea, old wood, wonderful oily, it gets sweeter, tobacco, more wax, wood oil, orange blossom, lilac, malaga rum, salty caramel with macadamia, baking cocoa - the nose is very lively, intense and complex - I have very long friends
    • Taste
      Nutmeg, grated tropical wood, pepper, licorice, cinnamon, gingerbread spices, even light oak, tobacco - palm wax shoe cream, old rotten mushroom-waxed oak wood from the cellar, to a pricklende citrus note - chewing it shows Geranium foliage, grass notes, delicate bitter substances like grapefruit peel, yellow Kiwi, pineapple, mint - tingly intense without being alcoholic
    • Finish
      gentle sweetness, wax, citrus and mint oil give freshness, a clear peppery chili sharpness is felt, hardly any dryness - but the wax stays long on tongue and cheeks

    A good malt from a bourbon barrel. I'm not completely flashed. But that's probably because it doesn't meet my taste 100%.
    But it is always delicious. It was nice to have tried it.
    • Nose
      Tree sap. Candied citrus fruits. Pear peel and tart pear juice. Apricot jam. Certain grassy and floral notes. A little honeycomb. Overall, such an aromatic oak, which is partly reminiscent of very light smoke. Even dry, slightly dusty wood. For a short time, pickle every now and then.
    • Taste
      A mix of sweetness and flavor. Orange blossom honey. Wood wort. Furniture polish. Ginger. A little chili oil. Also in my mouth a memory of very subtle smoke. In addition, a few dry coconut flakes and wax.
    • Finish
      Shoe polish. Almond oil. Pomegranate.

  7. Jeep51 scored this whisky 83 points Expert Senior

    Much too bitter in the mouth. The nose saves this whisky but I will not buy
    • Nose
      Very marked by exotic fruits, a little wax, honey. Really a very pretty nose, and quite immediate.
    • Taste
      By cons the mouth ... Underneath the quality of the nose. Raspberry, big bitterness, a little fruit and exotic all the same.
    • Finish
      Moderately long but too dry

  8. markjedi1 scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    If you have tasted this, you cannot conclude anything else than Glen Moray being one of those underrated distilleries. But then, the standard 12 is a meagre thing, compared to this. Wow! Those fellas at MoS sure know how to pick their casks. The spring release also contains two other Speysiders: a Tomintoul 1967 on a rum cask and a rather rare Banff 1975. But that is a whole different story
    • Nose
      The creamy nose burst with tropical fruit (think mango, pineapple, figs), upholstered with honey, vanilla, furniture polish and a big stamp of the oak. Not woodsmoke, but a hint of it. From the rack of herbs I remember cloves, cinnamon and a whiff of saffron. A leaf of mint gives the spirit a wonderfully fresh uplift.
    • Taste
      The attack makes the oak to speak first. Make that shout. Then all the herbs from the nose return and the whisky becomes very fruity again, almost tropical. Despite the high ABV, it does not need water.
    • Finish
      The finish is a party as well. Long, spicy and warm on soft oak.
