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

In August 2018 we started series 4 of #BlindTasting set up my Brian of Malt Musings. If you’ve not heard of the #BlindTasting’s then you can get the low-down HERE on Malt Musing’s website.

The third blind whisky sample in Series 4 came from Alistair aka Spirit and Wood and turned out to be a Glen Moray: Bottle your Own, in this case a delicious Sherry Finish. My full tasting notes are below:


Burnished Gold.


Sweet with loads of toffee, giving way to sherry and red wine notes.


Sweet spicy and fruity all in one go. Strawberry and cherry notes but also some underlying malt.


Spicy with oak giving way to some more of the fruit notes form the palate.


So far I’ve not found a Glen Moray bottling that I haven’t enjoyed and this was no exception. Their bottle your own offerings from the distillery are also an absolute if you ever manage to get up there. This was also my winner for Part 1 of Series 4.
