  2. Lu Cifer scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    warm and aromatic, slightly "dark", wood aromas, cereals, fruits, walnuts, chocolate, butter cookies, a hint of vanilla. Pleasant in perception.

    warm to the touch, full and aromatic, wood notes, spices, grain notes,
    "Dark", sweet-tart, trace of barrel and chocolate. Slightly tart and slightly astringent, sliding into the finish.

    warm, slightly spicy, slightly tart oak notes, spices, chocolate, finally becoming slightly dry with a slightly malty note.

    An interesting whisky, that's for sure. Not everyone'll love this, but I really like it.
    • Nose
      Nougat, some white chocolate and a bit of nailpolish remover as well. Slightly musty, but then it opens up into an array of cookie dough and melted butter, as well orange candy. Very attractive.
    • Taste
      Syrup-y. Mouthcoating. Slightly tannic and peppery on the arrival. Some marzipan, coconut shavings and touches of star anise. Not very fruity, although there is apple somewhere in the background.
    • Finish
      Bitter oranges and marzipan. Long.

    Note by Serge Valentin from whiskyfun.com:Glen Moray 27 yo 1986/2013 (56.8%, Adelphi, cask #1931, 243 bottles)  Colour: gold. Nose: a bit the OB without the Port. It’s very malty and bready at first nosing, and then it’s almost a pastry shop. Brioche, butterscotch, apple pie, all that… Plus a wee mustiness, hints of old wine cellar… With water: same territories as the Single Cask Nation. Malt, oak, tinned fruits. Mouth (neat): excellent. Full, almost thick, syrupy start, with marmalade and butter cream, plus a lot of marzipan. Some walnuts too, like in a walnut cake. Goes on earthier, grittier, wilder… A rather raw barleyness, in fact. With water: fruit-forward, but those are ‘moderate’ fruits. Apples, pears… Some barley syrup as well, perhaps agave syrup… It’s very good, just not, well, characterful. Is there a pattern? Finish: medium, syrupy, fruity… Comments: in fact, this is some kind of liquid cake. SGP:641 - 84 points.
