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.
