Glen Moray 18 Year Old Review

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

Glen Moray 18 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 18 year old is the oldest of three whiskies in the Speyside distillery's Elgin Heritage Collection, it was matured in First Fill American oak, bottled at 47% ABV, non chill filtered and is usually priced around 68.

William Morrison's Tasting Notes:

Nose: Sweet barley and creamy toffee with just the hint of fruitcake in the background.

Taste: A delicious
barley sugar candy sweetness, vanilla, zesty oranges, lemon and pear, a lovely light touch of oak spice hanging around the background.

Finish: A lovely long tongue tingling finish with creamy butter toffee, a touch of liquorice. which fades leaving the lingering
oak spice infused with very gentle sweet candied fruit which bitters out.

Comment: An undeniable First Fill oak influence, the 18 years in First Fill American oak and with a non chill filtered bottling strength of 47% ABV has made this a pleasure. This is my first time with this and it wont be my last, a delicious very enjoyable mature Speyside dram.

SMW Score 90/100

You will find the Glen Moray 18 year old along with the rest of the current Glen Moray whisky range available from specialist online whisky retailers such as The Whisky Exchange, The Whisky Shop and Master of Malt
