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.
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.
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.
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.
- Nougat, white chocolate and a bit gluey as well. Some coconut and orange. Zesty.
