Glen Moray / The Single Malts of Scotland

Glen Moray 2007 8 Year Old Cask #5134 (The Single Malts of Scotland) Review

Glen Moray 2007 8 Year Old Cask #5134 (The Single Malts of Scotland)A sample that got caught in my backlog of drams, between life getting in the way and too many whiskies to work my way through this ended up sitting for much longer than it should.

A youthful Glen Moray is always something I can get my head and mind into, this appears from the look to be ex bourbon barrels something I really enjoy as it brings out those toffee caramel notes normally.

Juicy fruity spicy and utterly drinkable lots of mouthwatering sweet fruit notes with toffee notes and I utterly love this, totally how Glen Moray should be seen

Sold out a while back but there is a 10 year old from the same bottler available at The Whisky Exchange

Thanks to Speciality Brands for the official sample.

Tasting Notes & Details

Nose

This actually feels much more grown up than I was expecting there's a eucalyptus menthol note normally associated with much more grown up drams, liquorice and toffee and caramel, gentle tropical fruit and woody elements of apple and pear along with a touch of caramelised white chocolate and a touch of Cremola foam.

Palate

Some heat straight of the bat, the abv helps with that, but it's also a hint of ginger spice heat and a splash of tropical fruit juice, with nutmeg, that cremola foam is back and juicy orchard fruits in a melted toffee sauce, sweet and spicy and very juicy

Finish

Warming heat spicy orchard fruits
