Glen Moray Distillery
Slightly obvious and a bit of a show pony, but not bad.
1983, 26 Years Old
Year of Bottling
Nose: Very silky and sweet. Coconut and vanilla ice cream. Gentle, soft and a little herbal. Cumin frying in butter. Fluffy. Milk chocolate, caramel. With water there’s green walnut.
Palate: Grippy and very spicy with masses of cinnamon, orange zest and a light long pepper note. Oak-driven (again), but the spirit is plump enough to cope.
Comment: Slightly obvious and a bit of a show pony, but not bad.
Nose: Pipe tobacco, a distant delicate smoke, clotted cream, cinder toffee and chocolate. Mince pies.
Palate: Very sweet up front. Honey and that cinder toffee. Just a gentle smoke at the back.
Finish: Lush and sweet.
Comment: A good late night whisky for the summer months.
