Michael Jackson

Nose
Pears, walnuts, fresh oak.
Palate
Pears in cream; late, lively, peachy fruitiness. Garden mint
Finish
Raisiny, also resiny. Fresh oak, soothing warmth.
Comment
Smooth body, beeswax-like. The wine adds an element, but many loyalists will miss the previous version.

Jim Murray

Nose
Altogether richer, more strident and confident. The wine effect is astonishing: sweet, overripe grapes balanced by a fabulous malty echo. Intriguingly smoky, too.
Palate
Soft and velvety on the palate. Charming spicy notes add to a complexity unusual for a Glen Moray.
Finish
Soft cocoa notes and some drying oak. The winey effect seems to linger while the spice battles to the end.
Comment
Glen Moray 12 Years Old used to be a bastion of ultra-malty simplicity. No more. Chenin Blanc barrels have added a delightful dimension.
