Interesting fact… Glen Moray Classic whisky spells its name whisky as it originates in Scotland. Had it been produced in America its name would be Glen Moray Classic whiskey, instead of whisky.
Nose: Light, fresh. Grist. Nutty, floral. Dried grass. Slightly fruity.
Palate: Oak, gentle. Well balanced, walnut, grist. Citrus, lemon sponge.
Finish: Tangy citrus, spicy fruitcake.
Dear MasterOfMalt, is it a replacement of the 8yo edition or a new whisky with other age?
OK as a cleaning agent or in medical emergencies but not one for the fireside.
Following an email sent to the distillery, they state that this malt is aged 8 years solely in bourbon casks. It's a little harsh for me too, with little lingering aftertaste, disappointing.
Disappointing flavour, in fact quite a nasty taste. Not sure what to use it for now. No mention of age.
This whisky doesn't deserve the low ratings, it is probably the best value single malt on the market. Yes it's a little rough and ready but that's part of it's charm. A spicy speyside bargain.
I love it and it's amazing in apple pies
I agree this is a lovely quiet malt, an absolute bargain. More of a church mouse than a thunder-cat, but a very pleasant toffee-apple nose. Not one for the peaty maltsters,but a lovely Speyside that will appeal to those Just starting to explore singles. I favor this over its much more gregarious neighbors. Simple and uncomplicated, a real discovery.
This is my favourite entry level malt. Delicate flavours, no over-bearing peat, a typical Speyside malt. Lovely and a bargain. Also available at Aldi.
this is one of the best whiskeys ive tasted yum! and ive tasted a lot malts along the way; a very good whiskey for the price, and its cheap!
yes yes yes. buy it!
It's a tad boring, but it has no real weaknesses either. A solid, pleasant enough malt with typical Speyside fruity flavours.
This is a nice, simple malt that's unlikely to offend anyone's palate. It's by no means special but at the same time very pleasant to drink - light, sweet and fruity.
I went to the store to quench my thirst for a hunch to have a good single malt ; but my trip to the expensive section was cut short by the price of this very first single malt. Thinking I wouldn't loose much I decided to pick up a bottle and hurried my way home.
The first sip hit me hard! Disappointed ; I thought too harsh.....
Second sip tasted better , the nose was warm and sweetish and with the complexity of spicinesss over the palate finishing off to a nice aftertaste. Cannot compare to the ones iam more used to but certainly good value for money and not much to loose. Cook it if you can't drink it!!!
Such a gentle malt, discrete and calming. For me, the 'zen' of malts in the sense that 'less is more'. Perfection at a bargain price.
I used to hold malt whisky nights at home where up to 10 friends would each bring a different malt from a set price range which would be sampled then the bottles taken home. The idea was to keep away from the "standards" and we tried many different malts in the £30 - £50 range though occasionally we would go higher. One evening we decided to try sub £20 malts which meant the majority were supermarket offerings. However, someone bought Glen Moray which won hands down and it became my favourite "cheap" malt. If you keep your expectations realistic it is an absolute bargain.
As a sub £20 malt this rates 10 out of 10
For the money a very smooth and sweet drink very Recomended unless your stuck up your own ass
For the price an excellent Malt with much depth.
Very pleasant and quite complex, compare this to a blended scotch at a similar price! Going for £20 in supermarkets, get some. Or, spend another tenner on Laphroaig, why not?
I think you'd struggle to find a better malt at the price. Nice toffee-butterscotch sweetness to it, not particularly complex finish but long enough and a few spicy notes in there. A nice drop, especially at under £20. Your loss if you want to be snobbish about it.
Only just taken up single malt tasting. I picked up a 70cl bottle of this for £17.50. I have tried Glenfiddich 12, 15 (favourite) and 18. Also tried Glenmorangie which I quite liked as well. Glen Moray is a decent cheap single malt which I probably wouldn't drink a lot of neat as its quite a harsh finish. Nice and fresh on the nose, warm on the palette but a disappointing finish for me personally. I think I'll be a fan of smoky and peaty malts.
