Glen Moray 2002 Cabernet Sauvignon Finish Review

Glen Moray 2002 Cabernet Sauvignon 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 dram comes from cask number 600234 and has been matured in a Cabernet Sauvignon cask giving it fruit notes and hints of those rich robust tannins.

There are some really good notes in here especially on the nose with dark fruit cinnammon topped crumble and chunks of toffee, but for me theres an off note in the palate that reminds me of swimming pool chlorine and then it becomes quite metallic tannic on the finish

I think this smells better than it tastes and there are some really interesting notes in here but it’s not one I’d instantly go back to.

Thanks to Barry at The Whisky Philes for sharing his samples.

Tasting Notes & Details


Pledge furniture polish and laminate flooring, dark fruits (plum, raisins, black cherries) and cinnamon crumble with toffee chunks in the slightly roughing crumble mix, travel sweets still in the slightly metallic tin.


Spices up front wood spices nutmeg and paprika, dark fruits again (those plums and cherries), a slightly odd chemical note (possibly swimming pool chlorine like) but I don’t find it bad, slightly metallic again.


Slight metallic notes, a lasting tang on the front of the tongue, and then sweet juicy dark fruits
