Whisky Reviews for Glen Moray 2006
7 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 88.33 points
- A very worthy sherry monster, the barrel harmoniously combined with the base, good work with the fortress, very drink; from minuses - with all the variety of sherry derivatives, lack of depth.
Restrained, dry, oak, lacquer, solvent, wet tin, rust, raisins, dried fruits, homemade apple pasta, nuts, black tea (dry).
Oily, thick, raisins, oak, sweet peppery wave, creamy notes, dried fruits, caramel-confectionery tones - burnt sugar, puff pastry, jam, cream, burnt crackers, leavened wort.
Apple-dried fruit, sweet with tart oak, light berry sour, a little dry medicinal herbs, earth notes, pu er, dried mushrooms.
- Nose: very distinct dark sherry with strong alcoholic notes, the 61.7% bite vigorously, after the first alcohol is gone, great sherry notes come to light: dark fruits, raisins, dried bananas, nuts, strong oak, behind come Christmas spices like Cinnamon and cardamom out - for the age very complex
Taste: sherry full, the alcohol stays back, but then bites, raisins, plums, almonds, cherry and strong oak flavors
Finish: quite short according to the age, but still distinct sherry / wine notes, and a lot of oak with water: a few drops are not enough to "combat" the strong alcohol, with significantly more water it changes extremely, there are an incredible number of citrus fruits added: tangerines, lemons and oranges, but he also shows a young age, since he then lacks something the depth. Therefore - please without water, even if the alcohol is very strong at the beginning - give him time !!!
Conclusion: Great barrel, great malt, although maybe a bit too young, but that makes him wild and untamed. And because of the strong oak, he should not have stayed in the barrel any longer - 88 points
- Fruity and intense sherry dominate the nose. The extremely spicy and powerful taste is remarkable. The finish disappoints easily, it may be due to the added amount of water. An intense and delicious sherry whisky!
Wonderful and deep dark copper. The drops run back when swiveling relatively quickly back into the glass. Seems to be a young whisky. When panning again, streaks form and the whisky runs back more slowly. Maybe he is not so young after all. Fine and intense sherry rises from the glass. Raisins and tangerines mix with the fruity sherry. The alcohol becomes more intense.
Wow! Intense and fruity sherry dominate the first sip. Strong oak flavors immediately follow and easily start to bite. The spicy wood becomes more and more intense and biting. What a start! After adding a little water, the spiciness of the wood is pleasantly reduced. Some fruit and a wooden aroma exude a cozy warmth.
The spicy wood exudes a pleasant aroma in the mouth. A slightly bitter aftertaste remains in memory. At the very end of the finish a slightly nutty aroma is created.
- Nose: the little one is very shy in the glass, with time come deep sherry notes, dark troche fruits (banana chips), wet wood, tobacco and nut cake. He is not an Aroma Bomb to start you but the sherry is powerful and no trace of youth.
Taste: Bäm now he is blooming. Honey sweetness, dried fruit (towards red berry fruits), discreetly spicy oak but dominated by sherry sweetness. The finish is medium long and warm with a lot of dry sherry and a bitter oak that becomes increasingly clear towards the end.
Water does the racker good and leaves more oak and a good dose of citrus by what I like quite well.
Conclusion: straightforward and drinkable Sherry bomb but time, water and the right glass to unfold. I would call that a typical DARK SHERRY cask whisky at a young age.
- Very nice dram indeed. Can still be bought at the distillery for £50 - quite a bargain
- Nose: HEAVY on the sherry! There is a sweetness and spices
1st taste: Oh my! this thing is awsome - if you like sherry bombs! to be fair the sherry is a little bit more subtle than other sherry bombs, but it is very good.
Body: Actually, I find it to be quite mild and sweet. it develops in your mouth. I taste: honey, moss, leather and dried fruits
Price: At 5 quid at the distillery, I would say the price is very reasonable
Presentation: I comes in a very nice box, and the experience of filling it yourself i always special
