Glen Moray Peated Port 6 Year Old


Please take into account that these are my personal tasting notes and personal experience, as such you may interpret this whiskey differently from me.

Near the end of 2017 I took part in series 2 of #BlindTasting set up my Brian of Malt Musings. It’s taken me a while to get around to typing up my tasting notes from then but I’m getting there at last. If you’ve not heard of the #BlindTasting’s then you can get the low-down HERE and you can also find out more detail about Series 2 HERE on Malt Musing’s website.

The first whisky of Series 2 came from Brian of Malt Musings and was the rather delicious Glen Moray Distillery Exclusive Peated Port 6 year old. My full tasting notes are below:




Salt to start then sweet – chocolate, icing sugar and vanilla. Plenty of fruit, oak, smoke and aniseed right at the end.


Sweet – vanilla and chocolate again. Fruit – berries, oak and smoke.


Smoke, nuts and chocolate praline.


An absolutely delicious whisky! Even more interesting as it was a blind sample as I’d have sworn this was from Islay to begin with. Plenty of smoke and fruit but also very sweet with a great mix of chocolate and nuts/praline.

As this is a distillery exclusive I don’t have any official tasting notes to compare with, all I can say is that I thoroughly enjoyed it and if I could get my hands on it I’d happily buy a bottle.
