Glen Moray 2010 Peated PX Finish
My good friend Barry from The Whisky Philes recently took part in a tweet tasting of Glen Moray drams with The Whisky Wire and shared some of the generous samples from these single cask expressions with me.
This Peated malt, which is around 6 year old, was finished in Pedro Ximinez Sherry cask number 99917 giving the peat a caramelised jam finish.
I’m really not sure whether I like this one, the peat is too strong to allow the jam from the PX to come through, its there but its not enough to make me want to sip it.
An interesting dram, but one I don’t think works, at least not for me.
However go visit Glen Moray yourself and try their Fill Your Own bottle, which is a single cask and one of the best value, and best drinking, whiskies out there.
Thanks to Barry at The Whisky Philes for sharing his samples.
Well toasted wholemeal bread, with well caramelised dark damson jam, manuka honey, puffs of smoke, more cigar smoke than bonfire or BBQ and hints of dirty engine oil, slightly farmyards, silage notes, chocolate covered Brazil nuts.
Burnt caramel covered in chocolate, seriously dark wholemeal toast with layers of thick homemade caramelised jam, puff candy and cinder toffee, more of that cigar note and farmyard like once again.
Long lasting farmyard and cigar notes with puff candy and caramelised Jam
