Glen Moray 12 Year Old Bottling Note

12 year old single malt Scotch whisky from Glen Moray - a long-running distillery in the Speyside region. A good portion of their whisky makes its way into some popular blends, though their single malt is much loved for richly malty, honey'd elements.

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose: Clover honey and cereal grain with a fresh gristy character.

Palate: The palate is creamy with a little winter spice and a green herbaceousness.

Finish: The finish is swift and refreshing with lingering notes of vanilla and acacia honey.

Overall: This is a sweet and enjoyable single malt from this classic Speyside distillery.

Glen Moray 12 Year Old Reviews


Beautifully smooth

4th May 2020

Great mixer!

My husband enjoys mixing this with Schweppes lemonade but I think it pairs better with 7-UP. Single malts can only be enjoyed with a mixer, drinking it undiluted would be taste bud suicide 5/10

Milky, Sweet, and Smooth

Has a very cerealy taste, very herbal/floral noise, thick and creamy mouthfeel. Small bits of vanilla, and what I can only describe as a sort of cereal/milky taste, and a creamy mouthfeel, almost a little too rich in terms of mouth feel and cerealness. After a second or two on the palate, it almost feels as if there is going to be an oncoming of peat, which never arrives. Its mild character is overwhelmed by its savory qualities, but is easy to drink and overall enjoyable. Would certainly find it enjoyable as a gift, though I don't think I'll be buying another bottle very soon for myself.

Love it

Maybe one of the best affordable whiskeys on earth

Light peaty tasting Malt

Reading the reviews shows that whiskey particularly malt whiskey is down to personal taste. For me Glen Moray has just the right amount of peat for a lovely late night tot.
Do not worry that it has ratings from ⭐️ to ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ Just try it for yourself.

Good value for an entry variety and brand

Very nice beginner malt, smooth and sweet finish. Reasonable price point as well.

24th May 2018


It’s a classic

Nice Whiskey, good value

It's a pleasant 80 proof dram and a good value for a 12 yr Single Malt. How anyone could describe this whiskey as harsh is a mystery to me unless it's by someone who is a whiskey and Coke drinker. Nice little starter whiskey with a flavor profile of many Speyside drams.

26th August 2017

Wonderful unpretentious single malt, consistently good!

Wonderful light but interesting nose. Spicy sweetness on the palate. The finish is relatively short but vanilla/malt lingers a bit. Enjoy this malt as a daily, love this malt for its value. Can't wait to try the new 15 and 18!!

15th February 2017

Great drop for the price, best for lovers of lighter Speysides

Nose: light hint of caramel, fresh grain smell, lacks some body

Palate: spicey, with a smooth finish

This is definitely one of my regular go to's. I enjoy a full body which the Glen Moray lacks a little however for a nice afternoon dram or five, this earns well deserved a place on the shelf.

4th February 2017

Ok for the price

I am fairly new to single malts. To be honest I bought this because it was cheap! I would not rate it any better than ok - you get what you pay for. A bit harsh. Probably best with a little water.

19th January 2017


Great whisky to start with if you're new with scotch and singlemalt! (this alongside with old pultney 12)

30th November 2016

Tastes like a blended

This is a good smooth scotch but does leave you wanting more body. It reminds me of the blended scotches because it has that smooth feel that is very balanced and has a good honey finish but it just leaves too early. The 10 year is more expensive for a reason. Overall good for an everyday but not a treat.

13th November 2016

Bottom Shelf

I was very disappointed with this scotch. The nose is pleasent. Very thin mouth feel. Any flavor that was present dissapeared almost immediately when sipped and turned into a burning mouthful of vodka. I've had dozens of mouth watering drams over the years. Not one of them have I disliked. This will be the first crappy, bottom shelf bottle for me. Didn't think bad scotch existed.

A Great 12 yr Single Malt

Glen Moray (pronounced Murry - been to the distillary and was surprised to learn this) 12 year old is a fine Speyside malt for the beginner or experienced malt master. For a 12 yr old w/o E150 carmel coloring (but still chill filtered) and at this price point it's simply a GREAT buy, if you're taster likes Speyside fruitiness this malt is loaded with banana, honey, and light citrus flavors. It is easy drinking (no smoke) with a splash of water. It has a medium finish with some pleasant bitters on the center of the tongue and fruit flavors and a touch of cinnamon. Among 12 yr old single malts, this one is unique and a delightful addition to the spectrum of malts. As an aside, Glen Morey is experimenting with lots of different finishes for their malts. They are creative and well priced malts.

Jim gil

No you are correct in saying harsh & probably one that should think twice before leaving in a barrel for 12 years

25th August 2016


tried this last night as I have not had the 12yr before, got a cupboard full of 10, 16 and a couple of 25 yr port finish and all three are superb firm favorites of mine.However, the 12 yr old was the biggest let down of any whisky I have had. It has no aroma, no taste and no finish it may as well be new make spirit.How can this be so poor when the 10, 16 and 25 are so excellent? Just to make things worse I just read that the 10yr old chardonnay matured is to be discontinued, being replaced by a NAS classic chardonnay finish. Big mistake I think as the ten year old is for me one of the best whiskies I have ever had.

25th July 2016

Feel the value

There are some great value 12 year old Speysides out there - I'd cite Knockando, Tomintoul and the Singleton of Dufftown among them - and this is certainly right in there.

Soft flavours of grain and wood, alongside sweet honey; quite smooth. It's uncomplicated enough for a novice and interesting enough for a geek. I found it interesting.

My favorite dram so far

In my experience, this is an excellent Speyside malt. The nose offers a lightly malted sweetness, with notes of honey and spice. The pallet is met with a wonderfully creamy fruitiness, with some sweet and cider notes. The finish is short, but enjoyable as the sweet fruit really develops. Overall, a very enjoyable, every day type of dram. At this price point, you truly cannot go wrong with the Glen Moray 12 year old! Happy sipping, friends!

31st May 2016

Excellent First Malt

Let me begin by saying that this was my first ever single malt scotch whisky and it didn't disappoint. Recomended to me as The starting place for malt beginners by the attendant at my local shop, this whisky has a beautiful crisp floral somewhat fruity nose reminiscent of green apples fresh clovers and just a tiny pop of citrus. It is smooth with just a tiny nip of alcohol and the taste is true to the nose with lovely but somewhat delicate notes of cream developing. The mouthfeel is somewhat oily in comparison to other blends and American spirits I have experienced. As far as pairings going, you don't want anything that would overpower the delicate nature of this Speyside malt, but something that will compliment and bring out the flavored nicely. I recommend a nice medium rare steak or a medium bodied cigar if you like. Slainte!

5th May 2016


Harsh with very little in the way of redeeming qualities. Just a blast of alcohol taste....

17th March 2016


This is the best whisky ever

11th March 2016

A great anytime Scotch

Smooth drinking with a nice finish, great for lunch, after work, or to finish off the night. It's also a great scotch to introduce your non-Scotch friends to. Nothing but compliments on it, and I always get calls later when my friends are at the store and want the name. The price makes it the perfect as a mainstay in your cabinet.

24th February 2016

Great Single Malt

This 12 year is unbelievably smooth. Pick 1 if you see it.

19th February 2016


Very well-rounded full-bodied whiskey flavor with a finish I guess you'd describe as smoky (still new to the terminology). A little too easy to drink. Don't be surprised if you manage to finish the bottle in but a few hours. After a few glasses, I was drinking this dram as if it were water. Absolutely irresistible!

4th February 2016

Light and smooth

A nice creamy mild flavor that is enjoyable. For the price, very reasonable.

7th January 2016

Surprised... by the other reviews.

My bottle is harsh and bitter and taste like crude alcohol. Once in a while I come back to my Glen Moray 12 and remember why I don't like it. However, I am quite surprised with the other reviews. As everyone else give such positive ratings of this Scotch, I start to think; Maybe there's something wrong with my bottle...

3rd November 2015


The 12 year was an amazing taste and flavor. It's my new favorite because of taste and value...WOW!

7th October 2015

Superbly mild

I hate the term, but this is 'smooth' with the capital S. Great quality spirit. Go buy, it's great value!

12th September 2015

Très surpris.

Ce scotch est surprenant et est plus qu'agréable à déguster. Pour moi, il est léger, mais pas trop. Un scotch bien balancé à mon goût.

30th July 2015


Very easy going and accessible dram. Great on any occaision!

20th January 2015

Raised eyebrow

Thought I would try something new and less expensive. Was hoping for a surprise. Well, I found one. Good nose and I added a small chip of ice to help it open up. Creamy oak and slight honey start. Spice on the tongue lingers briefly. Not as smooth as some of the more expensive single malts. But surprising on the quality of this speyside scotch. Will purchase this again for an evening reading, or a drink with friends.

On my way along Loch Nesss we stopped at a tavern where it was the whisky off the month. I couldn't resist, even though it was just midday. What a surpise it made me happy all over. I've presented it at a whisky tasting in my home village in the Netherlands and wasn't surprised when it came out Nr.1

18th December 2014

I keep coming back!

Forget that it's the best price for a 12 year old single malt. It's perhaps the most well-balanced. I'm not a big fan of the heavy wood scotches. I can get wood for free in the scrap pile at home depot- I want to savor the craftsmanship that went into making it. I think 10 year Macallan has more malt flavor than their own 12. Glen Moray has a light oaky start, just enough to taste, with nice flavors of caramel roasted malts, along with vanilla and slight honey after tones. Some fruit and spice will linger on the tongue, but the finish is the right balance of roasted malt that's been stored in a warehouse cask.

13th December 2014


a great single malt for the price. it'll be in my house for many years to come.

12th December 2014

First timer

My first single malt experience. This whisky goes down smooth and warms the soul.

28th March 2014


Very smooth and enticing, everything the label says - perhaps a bit too easy to settle into and have more than one should!

7th January 2014

Pretty good considering for the price.

I was a skeptic at first, because of the price. I bought a bottle since they were out of Speyburn 10 year aged and was over all pleased. It's very smooth, has hints of toffee, honey, some oak, and very clean on the palate. You can tell they used very clean/fresh water for making this.

Rather floral on the nose too. Bottom line. If you're like me, who myself is a huge Islay/peat fan and loves Laphroaig, Ardbeg, etc.. then this may not be your cup of tea. But even so, it is still a respectable whisky. And does deliver as a decent whisky, despite it's lack of character. For a lower priced whisky, I'd recommend you purchase a bottle.

6th January 2014

Crowd pleaser

This dram is ridiculously smooth. Simple taste yes, but this is great because it can never be overbearing and makes it very easy to drink. Perfect to offer your guests or as a everyday dram.

27th November 2013

better than the price suggests

This is a really simple whisky, not peaty or any other acquired tastes here, I value its unpretentious nature. Better than the classic. Lacks heavy flavours if that's your thing.
