  1. Slàinte Mhath scored this whisky 80 points Administrator

    As one of the more unknown distilleries, Glen Moray is a bit off the radar. However, sometimes there is more than first meets the eye. The shy Speyside nose of this 12-year-old expression offers fresh fruits, orange peel and honey. With water, the fruitiness intensifies with sour plums, apricots and marzipan. On the palate, sweet and malty flavors combine with bitter lemon, cinnamon and a touch of wood spices. Short but pleasant in the finish, the aftertaste fades with hints of chocolate and licorice. A refreshingly honest and reasonably priced Single Malt!

    Good quality for money. Nose sweet and a bit fruity. On the body bit flat. The finish is a bit too short.

  5. Cask1988 did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    It’s What you can, would and should expect from it. Light, simple young, malty. Almost no depth or body. It’s just a startup whisky for a tasting or maybe ‘food’ for those that are completely new in the World of single malts. In that case I would recommend something like Glenlivet, Balvenie of Tomatin.
    • Nose
      Light, very light. Some Apples and pineapple, vanilla a hint of macaroons and licorice. It’s a simple nose. Not complex, not a lot happening.
    • Taste
      Something bittersweet. Very light, thin body. Again no complexity here. Watery mouthfeel, some lemons maybe, apples and pears. Quite some vanilla.
    • Finish
      Short, one-sided and sharp. It’s not really doing anything.

      Caramel, butter, vanilla, hops hop. Soft tingling mouthfeel. Something filming.

  10. AdelphosHume scored this whisky 84 points Expert Senior

    The nose was initially rock sugar and green apples and spirit driven when I first opened the bottle, but it's mellowed as the fill level has gone down. There is very faint peat on the nose and palate that becomes more noticeable with 20 or so minutes in the glass. It's an enjoyable dram, especially if you liked the NAS but want something less green and astringent/floral. 
    • Nose
      Vanilla custard, young ginger and brown sugar, malt, light clove and sweet almond, mixed green and white fruits (guava, grapes, and peaches), light oak and oak char, tannins (green tea) with jasmine floral
    • Taste
      Malt, sweet white fruits, vanilla and caramel, cafe latte, peat and toffee
    • Finish
      Floral
      chocolate, soft oak, and a hint of bitter-sweet vanilla and green malt
