Glen Moray

Glen Moray 12 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 40.00%
7 A sweet, soft and mellow fruitiness. Too much is too much sometimes.

Glen Moray 12 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 40.00%
7 So beautifully composed that it left me craving some imperfection.

Glen Moray 12 Years Old, Chenin Blanc Finish
Single Malt - Scotland - 40.00%
7 Smooth body, beeswax-like. The wine adds an element, but many loyalists will miss the previous version.

Glen Moray 16 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 40.00%
8 Not quite as complex as the previous 16 Years Old, but delicious.

Glen Moray 16 Years Old, Chenin Blanc Finish
Single Malt - Scotland - 40.00%
8 Firmer and more assertive.

Glen Moray 16 Years Old, Chenin Blanc Finish
Single Malt - Scotland - 40.00%
8 Less delicate and scenty, but more satisfying. More wine, but more of everything else.

Whisky Magazine - Editors Choice - Winner

Glen Moray 1962, Ed Dodson's Last Manager's Choice
Single Malt - Scotland - 51.00%
8 As appealing and intriguing as a cupboard full of granny's jams for a young pilferer (I was one!). You just can't resist!

Whisky Magazine - Recommended - Winner

Glen Moray 1971 Vintage
Single Malt - Scotland - 43.00%
8 Glen Moray has never been seen as a glamorous malt, but it gains mystery with maturity.

Glen Moray 1974, Distillery Manager's Choice
Single Malt - Scotland - 53.40%
8 The aromas remind me of a young woman I tried to bed in the early 1970s. She bit my tongue when I did something to offend her feminist ethic.

Glen Moray 1981 Single Sherry Butt
Single Malt - Scotland - 57.70%
7 The richness of the whisky more than balances the slight woodiness. This is delicious. Glen Moray with maturity-and dimension-than we can usually experience.

Glen Moray 1986 Commemorative Bottling
Single Malt - Scotland - 64.40%
7 Robust. Complex. After dinner.

Glen Moray 1989 Signature Malt 16 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 57.60%
7 It's hard to get excited about.

Glen Moray 20 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 54.50%
7 Bonus points for knowing its own mind.

Glen Moray Chardonnay Finish
Single Malt - Scotland - 40.00%
7 Pale and soft, but textured.

Glen Moray Classic
Single Malt - Scotland - 40.00%
8 I had not realised Glen Moray could be so sensuous.

Glen Moray Classic
Single Malt - Scotland - 40.00%
7 Seems rather neutral at first, but develops engaging subtleties.

Glen Moray Dimensions Batch 1
Single Malt - Scotland - 46.00%
7 Pleasing but not sensational.

Glen Moray Manager's Choice Mountain Oak Malt
Single Malt - Scotland - 60.00%
8 A robust rendition. One for mountaineers?

Glen Moray Mountain Oak The Final Release
Single Malt - Scotland - 58.60%
7 More of a whisky spread than a drink. For those with a sweet tooth.

Glen Moray Port Finish 1995 13 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 56.70%
7 Assertive and tangy. The alcohol is not mastered and the character lacks depth.

Whisky Magazine - Recommended - Winner

Rare Auld Glen Moray 35 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 52.70%
8 An exemplary old gently matured whisky.
