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.

User Reviews of the Glen Moray 12 Year Old

Jim gil

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

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.

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!

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!

Terrible....

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

This is the best whisky ever

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.

Great Single Malt

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

19th February 2016

SO SO GOOD!!!

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

Surprised!

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

Great

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.

surpise

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

Smooth

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.

Mike

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.

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.
