Glen Moray was a brewery which was transformed into a whisky distillery in 1897 by the Glen Moray Glenlivet Distillery Company. The distillery closed in 1910 and after a brief reopening in 1912, Glen Moray didn't go back into production until 1923, when it was acquired by the owners of Glenmorangie. Since then the only time the distillery has been closed was during World War II, due to the shortage of barley. In 1958 a Saladin Box was installed which was in use up to 1977 and the stills where increased from 2 to 4. Its sister distillery Glen Morangie may be better known but Glen Moray is gaining its own reputation. Glen Moray is a component of the Queen Anne blend.
 

Glen Moray Tasting Notes


Glen Moray 12 Year Old Single Malt.
Colour: Mid-golden.
Nose: Sweet, fruity and floral. Highland toffee and candy floss with honeycomb and sweet malt notes.
Taste: Smooth, warming and rounded with a good firm body. Lots of sweet, soft malty flavours evolve in the centre of the palate, surrounded by toffee and mouth watering fruits.
Finish: Toffee, blackcurrants and a hint of liquorice remains into the finish which is medium in length.
 
Glen Moray 12 Year Old Single Malt.
Submitted By Brent Chezenko, Canada.
Colour: Light.
Nose: Sweet Floral.
Taste: Sweet, dried fruit, fruit cake.
Finish: Well balanced, easy and a very smooth and pleasant tasting malt.
Comment: By far the best single malt Scotch. Easy drinking yet explodes with flavour. A real winner. I have been trying to get this Scotch imported into Canada. I hope this happens.
