I just tried a 14 Year Old Glen Moray from this independent bottler. Now let us try a 20 Year Old from 1995, just out. It is a bit darker and strangely enough has a higher ABV.
The nose is wonderfully aromatic on sweet malt, marzipan and Turkish Delight. Some freshly cut grass, citrus and yellow plums make it complete. This is a nice nose, even diluted.
The malt arrives a bit piquant. The fruit from the nose returns, seasoned with white pepper and liquorice. The marzipan becomes loud. That is fine. The citrus whispers, while the Turkish Delight rears its head as well. It does not really need water, but can cope with it. It then becomes sweeter and somewhat greener, if you know what I mean.
The finish is nicely long, spicy, warm and sweet from the fruit. It stays upright even with water.
This is a fairly straight shooting Glen Moray, but fine on the nose, palate and in the finish, even with a good splash of water. As it should be.
