Glen Moray is in hands of the French group La Martiniquaise (previously it belonged to Glenmorangie PLC). Their flagship is the Glen Moray Classic, but there are also quite some finishes, like this one. It got a finish of 8 monhts on port casks, but no age statement. It is very pale with a pink hue, a bit like rosé wine.

The nose is very soft on baby breath, pancake batter, overripe banana and a hint of milk chocolate. Very sweet with a mild sour edge.

Soft and oily on the palate with immediate very clear influences of the port cask. It becomes a bit liqueur-like, as in a Mon Chérie chocolate candy. A lovely spiciness with pepper, nutmeg and a bit of cocoa. But unfortunately not much else.

The medium long finish offers a bitter touch from the oak.

It is certainly not a grand malt, but bang for your buck with a price tag of around 30 EUR.
