  1. Noface83 scored this whisky 88 points Specialist

    At the beginning of 2017, two Glen Morays from the Chardonnay keg came into the shop for the hand-filled one after the other. The first one was very full of character with lots of woody aromas. Let's see how the successor cuts off.
    Nose: more fruity than its predecessor with many bright fruits (apricot, pear and mirabelle), malty sweetness, vanilla, caramel, the 59% are clearly noticeable (help some time in the glass), with time, the oak becomes clearer - slightly acidic Wine notes and spicy wood. Water brings the vanilla and caramel more prominently into the foreground. I like the nose better.
    Taste: intense and warm, a lot of malt and peppery oak, sweet fruit salad with custard, These aromas are also part of the long finish, which is then clearly dominated by the oak (milk chocolate and wood shavings). Not quite as heavily woody but less complex on the finish than its predecessor. But rounder and creamier with more length. Is probably the form of the day which of the two I like more here.
    Like its predecessor, taking time in the glass but rewarding a tremendous amount. The nose is a dream. The start even with water too hard but once you get used to it you discover more and more. The finish is damn long and tasty. That's why I like it here a bit better than its predecessor and is a really great whisky!

  6. LordBellamy scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    Nose: At the beginning a lot of vanilla, caramel, toffee and fresh fruits like peach and a little pear. Behind it is the typical distillery character with spicy notes of malt and yellow fruits like mirabelle. The 59% are clearly noticeable with black pepper in the nose, in addition come thick oak chips Taste: vanilla, light, fruity sweetness, then the alcohol is very strong, which has neat pepper, plus a portion of oak Finish: medium in length, again a lot of fruity sweetness, cereal / porridge, oak and some noble rot Water: he's screaming for water, so let's try it. It tolerates a lot of water, it opens and becomes softer, much sweeter with much more caramel, and the yellow fruits are emphasized much more. In addition, orange abrasion and citrus fruits, the strong oak remains. Conclusion: Again an absolute cracker, the last Chardonnay barrel was already great, but this surpasses the once again. Above all, the oak is not quite so dominant and makes the Malt so rounder and better balanced. In any case, water in the glass, that's a real swimmer. Chardonnay and Glen Moray just go well together! The distillery proves that for a long time with some standard bottlings - 88 points
