    Mon Chérie

    Glen Moray is in hands of the French group La Martiniquaise (previously it belonged to Glenmorangie PLC). Their flagship is the Glen Moray Classic, but there are also quite some finishes, like this one. It got a finish of 8 monhts on port casks, but no age statement. It is very pale with a pink hue, a bit like rosé wine.

    The nose is very soft on baby breath, pancake batter, overripe banana and a hint of milk chocolate. Very sweet with a mild sour edge.

    Soft and oily on the palate with immediate very clear influences of the port cask. It becomes a bit liqueur-like, as in a Mon Chérie chocolate candy. A lovely spiciness with pepper, nutmeg and a bit of cocoa. But unfortunately not much else.

    The medium long finish offers a bitter touch from the oak.

    It is certainly not a grand malt, but bang for your buck with a price tag of around 30 EUR.

    Fresh, uninteresting, but easy to drink and inexpensive.
    • Nose
      In the foreground, obsessive malt tones are felt. Deeper - sour fruits and berries, some nuts and oak bark.
    • Taste
      Malt, spicy, slightly vanilla, with an oak note.
    • Finish
      Short, filled with tannins and bread shades. In the end, sweet, smoothly fading.

  7. Allandale scored this whisky 80 points Connoisseur

    Bitter and sweet.
    • Nose
      Toasted vanilla and subtle hints of oak. Aromas of rich dried fruits and leather follow, laced with dark chocolate and blackberries.
    • Taste
      Spice combined with a refreshing lemony citrus tang. Notes of caramel sweetness and cinnamon .
    • Finish
      Smooth with soft oak and honey sweetness. The spice continues to tingle and dark chocolate flavours develop to give a luxurious texture.

    Gotta give this 90 points just for the sheer value for money!
    Paid 29,90€ for this bottle and never have i encountered quality like this in this price range. Usually bottles this cheap are in the gasoline/petrol department, but this surely is not!
    Really enjoyable dram! Buy it if you see it!
