Whisky Reviews for Glen Moray 1959 RWD

5 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 94.55 points

  1. metropolis13 scored this whisky 90 points Expert Senior

    Superb nose but mouth unbalanced by the wood that is (much) too much.

  2. Dede scored this whisky 89 points Expert Senior

    Interesting, complex, but much too woody !!

  3. wheatfield scored this whisky 92 points Expert Junior

    Tasted beside Karuizawa 1984 (cask 8173). Dark raisin color, much deeper than the Zawa. Nose is rich dried fruits (raisins), vanilla cream, light tannins. Sweet maraschino cherries. Less funky on the nose than the Zawa, though there are some faint mushroom notes. Palate is brighter and explodes with dark fruit compote (cherries, blueberries), general dark sherry tones, and more chocolate than I think I've ever had in a whisky. Definitely rum cake and other rich baked goods -- glazed donuts. The slightly woody, mushroom notes contrast the sweet elements really nicely.  Finish swells impressively with all these flavors and is long and pleasantly hot. This is quite a bit more refined than the Zawa, it's sweeter and more "elegant" I would say. As it really opens there are some amazing chocolate cake notes that really start to shine. A-la Goose Island Bourbon County Rare at its peak like 3 years ago. Pretty fantastic stuff, for sure.

  4. corbuso scored this whisky 91 points Expert Senior

     a well made, rich and fruity whisky, but very heavy on the sherry, with some tannins and coffee. Mainly for sherry freaks.

  5. japanfan scored this whisky 97 points Member Senior

    This was bottled by Duthie s and cadenhead ´s after careful selection by Samaroli. WF notes: 93 points
