Glen Moray 15yo Elgin

15 year old single malt from the Glen Moray distillery, released as part of the Elgin Heritage range - which is all about showing off the accessible deliciousness of its Speyside whisky. This was drawn from a selection of American oak and Sherry casks.

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose Sweet as it opens with white chocolate and caramel. A hint of charred oak smokiness develops.

Palate Crumbly fudge with a few sea salt flakes, shortly joined by banana fritters and chocolate raisins.

Finish Cinnamon and ground ginger.

Reviews for Glen Moray 15 Year Old - Elgin Heritage
Best 15yr old Speysider
I absolutely love this whisky, I have to say that I have drunk this ever since it first came out and each time I find more flavours. This is a distillery that I have the utmost respect and fondness for, never had a bad dram from Glen Moray and I have had lots of different versions. In my opinion this is the best 15yr old Speysider.

Incredible for the price!
Bought in Ontario, Canada.
Could not believe the price for a 15 year old.
Caramel or burnt sugar on the nose and extra spice in the back of the throat.

Wholehearted recommendation
What a piece of joy! Big, rich, punchy and so much going on!

If you buy one Glen Moray, this year, make it this one. The 12yo expression, in this range, is decent value for money, but I'd probably take the anCnoc 12yo, which is cheaper, in a similar style, and every bit as good. The 18yo was slightly disappointing, after this, and didn't really advance the expression - you can see my debate with another user, on that subject, in the tasing notes of the 18yo, as if that's interesting.

This is the one to take, in this range. Def would buy. Have bought, in fact... on multiple occasions, which is proof.

Simply Average
Nose is pleasant. The arrival is nice, but that it. Not much development and a clingy, astringent finish that's not altogether pleasant. Would expect more complexity and development at this age and price point.

Beautiful Floral and Fruit notes combine in winner of a whisky
GLEN MORAY 10 Chardonnay Casks was my favorite whisky, but the GLEN MORAY 15 y.o. leaving nothing to be desired. Here is my original review and I am still enjoying this floral shop of a whisky in the winter. It is a reminder of spring.

GLEN MORAY 15 y.o. Speyside Single Malt Scottish Whisky

7/14/18

There was a pleasant Floral note from the bottle when I first opened it.

Left the bottle open to breathe for 30 minutes

40% ABV A marriage of whisky aged in Oloroso Sherry Casks and Ex-Bourbon American Oak Casks.

COLOR: A pale yellow with a nice ring and legs running variously.

NOSE: A grape note with a background of floral. The grape note has a rich sense

PALETTE: Floral Notes on arrival with a hint of fruit underneath. The mouthfeel is light yet coating. It seems to have a syrupy texture as it sits in my tongue, yet the floral notes are light and pleasant

FINISH: Lightly Spicy, yet retaining a light sweetness. There is a light syrupy sense on my tongue but not overly sweet. There is a floral note lingering in my mouth as time passes.

With 1 drop of Poland Spring water

NOSE: A grape note with floral underpinnings similar to my Neat experience in every way.

PALETTE: The Mouthfeel is lighter yet there is a sweeter note. Pepper rises as I hold it in my mouth. Swirling it creates a combination of light pleasant candy sweetness and light spice.

FINISH: Very Spicy and drying some alcohol burn on the tip of my tongue; overall drying sense.

With 2 drops of Poland Spring Water

NOSE: Floral note is predominant; still with a rich sense

PALETTE: Light syrupy sweetness pleasant; a light pepper rises as I swirl it with a drying sense as well. The sweet note remains in the background.

FINISH: Spicy and Very Drying, again that tingle on my tongue tip.

If Coloring is used in this expression it is used sparingly, because the color is of a yellow similar to strained Apple Cider. The mouthfeel here is very coating for a 40% ABV whisky neat. As usual, I enjoy this whisky neat the most. All the notes are at their strongest.

There is a very nice experience of fruit and floral notes. Even though grape notes are evident on arrival the floral notes rise as it sits in my mouth. The syrupy note is more about coating and is pleasantly sweet, not overbearing. It becomes sweeter with water yet never crosses the line into overbearing. A Very Pleasant Glass; give it a try.
