Whisky Reviews for Machrie Moor Fourth Edition

11 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 82.71 points

  1. Tom na Gruagaich scored this whisky 75 points Connoisseur

    Nose: sweet, slightly lemony, some apple, slightly peated, slightly sweaty, but not unpleasant. I think the nose is quite acceptable. Could something go in the direction of young lighter smokers. Mouth: there he is, the peat, embedded in a peppery overall experience, vanilla, sweetness and a slightly tart, alcoholic touch at the end. Finish: slightly smoky, sweetish (slightly artificial), slightly maritime.

  3. krupoder scored this whisky 82 points Member Senior

    Nose: Smoky, plastic, standing in a glass, smoke disappears and citrus bitterness appears, salinity (peat).
    Empty glass: Sleepers, trains, creosote.
    Taste: A dead tree (does not repel), floral, but how do I know which flowers taste and which flowers or grass exactly ?!
    Aftertaste: Long, closer to long. Light, smoky, woody, firewood, apricots and white wine.
    Balance: good, but the smoke quickly goes away and the winner is the taste.

  4. St. Pauli scored this whisky 81 points Connoisseur

    Young, Green and mildly peaty. Everything is soft, but a bit immature.

  5. ricallende did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

     Overall it’s a bit light, but it’s nice.
    • Nose
      Peat, fruit, red licorice and orange.
    • Taste
      Light peat, fruit, citrus, vanilla, dark funk and an odd sweetness, more orange.
    • Finish
      Finish: Smoked meat, orange,vanilla and fruit.

  7. KayMeertens scored this whisky 83 points Specialist

    I liked the first two batches a bit better, the sherry influence in those balanced that saltiness which is so present in here a bit better. It's in line with the third release but even saltier.
    • Nose
      Orange, citrus, peat, salt, malt and peach.
    • Taste
      Orange, salt, peat, malt, pepper and vanilla.
    • Finish
      Salt, peat, malt, orange, chocolate and vanilla.

  8. GlenSikkes did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    The Peated Arran. Lightly peated at 20ppm, this mythical malt has proved a popular addition to the Arran range. On the west coast of the Isle of Arran lies a windswept and mystical peat bog called Machrie Moor. Bronze Age stone circles and standing stones are strewn across its barren, undulating terrain. One of the stone circles is known as Fingal’s Cauldron Seat, where sits a stone with a carved hole. The legendary warrior giant Fingal is said to have tethered his favourite dog Bran to this stone. This peated expression of the Arran Single Malt perfectly captures the rugged beauty and lore of the landscape. Unleash the legend that is Machrie Moor.

    Tasting Notes by Arran
    • Nose
      Fresh and vibrant with an evident influence on an Ex-Bourbon Cask. Tropical notes of pineapple, peaches, and a distinctive coconut aroma dominate while a pleasant touch of peat reek in the background adds an interesting dimension to this vivacious combination.
    • Taste
      The palate gives a lot of citrus freshness that mixes beautifully with rich spice and a hint of peat smoke. A few drops of water reveal even more of the peaty smokiness that is wonderfully balanced by a delicious honey sweetness and vanilla.
    • Finish
      The finish is crisp and clean with lingering smoke and sweet vanilla.

  9. alectron scored this whisky 79 points Specialist

    • Taste

  10. ASWhisky scored this whisky 80 points Connoisseur

    the best was the nose
