Tasting Notes by markjedi1

I visited the Glen Moray distillery on the outskirts of Elgin in September 2010. But it was a Sunday, so the visitor centre was closed. This entry level 12 Year Old is dirt cheap. Between 25 and 30 EUR for a bottle of single malt.

The nose is very soft and sweet on vanilla, toffee and honey. A touch of oak and some pear drops. Unfortunately not much else and far from extraordinary.

It is soft and slightly oily on the palate. The pears return, as does the rest of the sweetness from the nose, with a mild spiciness. Not bad, but hardly enough to get me excited.

The short finish also offers some nuts and liquorice.

A little, characterless malt. Glen Moray has a lot more to offer, so put your money back in your pocket and select something else. Thanks, Reza, for the sample.

We are picking bottles up for $30/USD - and I would be a bit less hard - I preferred the other description - though perhaps an 82 - definitely drinkable (esp. at $30/USD...:-)!!).
