Noticed that this was on at very cheap deals at Christmas I could even buy at from Booker Cash and Carry and make good margin selling it for £18 ! Has anyone actually tried this ? is it any good or absolute filth ? saw it had a wine and spirit competion medal but that's not usually worth a lot
I enjoy Glen Moray and have been fortunate enough to have had the opportunity to try some very unique bottlings including one handfilled at the distillery. I think part of it is that many are looking for peated whiskies or big sherry bombs as opposed to the lighter side presented by Glen Moray. I've missed the Chardonnay 12 yos but I did have the "mellowed in chenin blanc" versions (12/16).
well i'll just buy some more and give it whirl myself customer told me it was very good but he was about 107 years old and had a nose the colour of Oz Shiraz so i didn't take him at his word ! seeing as it's quite chilly out maybe a 1995 connoisseurs choice ardbeg before bed !
Just last night I was sipping the almost-end of a single cask red wine finished bottle I got from the distillery. Delicious it was. all manner of malty sweet shop memories conjured up, from wine gums to tangerine sticks to icing sugar...
An OB of something like this at a rather more civilised strength of 46%(this one was great at 59.7%) would go well I reckon. Nothing quite like it.
They certainly have some unique bottlings, like the Mountain Oak which masquerades as a Bourbon, but lighter and sweeter.
