Glen Moray 12 Year Old Review


18th September 2017
Review of the Glen Moray Elgin Heritage Collection 12 year old.

Glen Moray 12 Year OldAs the Glen Moray distillery has just celebrated its 120th anniversary of whisky making on the 13th September I thought I what better time is there than now to take a look at a few whiskies from their core range.

The Glen Moray 12 year old is the youngest of three whiskies in the Speyside distillery's Elgin Heritage Collection, it was matured exclusively in American oak, bottled at 40% ABV and is usually priced around 35.

William Morrison's Tasting Notes:

Nose: Gentle malt with a sweet vanilla icing sugar edge, the slightest touch of lemon
and just the mildest touch of grassy notes.

Taste: Delicious mouth coating malt and toffee vanilla custard is joined by some oak and the lemon from the nose is joined by a touch of lime.

Finish: Long, the sweet vanilla and malt fades leaving some gentle mildly drying oak.

Comment:
A lovely balance between the malt, sweet vanilla, a touch of fruit and just the slightest grassy notes. If you like malty rich Speyside whiskies you will like this, a quality very easy drinking Speyside dram. I would love to see this bottled at higher strength as I think it could be very good indeed at 46% to 50% ABV, still a very good value dram at its 40% bottling strength.

SMW Score 86/100


You will find the Glen Moray 12 year old along with the rest of the current Glen Moray whisky range available from specialist online whisky retailers such as Master of Malt
