The most amazing nose, with a full body and doesn't let you down on the palate. A truly wonderful offering from this distillery and unlike anything I've tasted from Glen Moray before.

It would help if you told us what is written on the bottle, or the flavours you've detected yourself.

This is an exciting cask - a newly made 'designer' cask. Untouched by any other spitit (a rarity and a real treat).

The SMWS Tasting Panel wrote:

We found this nose interesting and unusual, doubtless due to the new wood. Echoes of oak (a carpenter’s workshop, tea boxes, vanilla) complemented the rich toffee, chocolate and raisins; but then something more airy arrived – American cream soda, coca-cola, bubble-gum and peppermint. The unreduced palate started fruity and floral, but developed a masculine side (smoke, ash, leather and tobacco). The reduced nose, with perfumed smoke, sandalwood and carpets, suggested Moroccan tea-rooms to someone who knew about such things. The palate became elegantly sweet and teasing, but with clove and cigar-box boldness. The distillery was in the Glenmorangie group until recently.

Drinking tip: To enjoy while the shades of evening gather; maybe on a carpet
