Glen Moray 25YO 1988 Bottling Note

A 1988 vintage, 25 year old Glen Moray single malt, which has been treated to a Port cask finish before bottling. Comes with a handsome presentation box and a scroll, which is lovely, because we could all use more scrolls in our life.

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose: Sugar coated nuts, fresh barley and a hint of old oak furniture.

Palate: Vanilla pod, candied orange, oak and a good whack of nutmeg.

Finish: Wine-like sweetness grows and grows on the finish.

Glen Moray 25 Year Old 1988 Port Cask Finish Reviews

Nice for the price - not for the age.

Normally all for the tasting notes by The Chaps but on this occasion I seriously disagree. I tasted this one side by side with the Glenlivet XXV - a much more expensive whiskey, granted, but the same age.
This fell so far short it’s laughable. Unfortunately, it falls short of other Glenlivet brands in the price point; Signet, even the Exceedingly Rare has a pop at it. SMWS did amazing things with Glen Moray casks; shame they can’t replicate it at home.
Nose is as you’d expect from an aged Speyside; only I get overwhelming hints of the sea. Not peat, just the ocean. Salt, spray, mist. Then toffee. Strong. And apples; though not toffee apples, separate scents. Then long brown sugar cubes finally punch through.
Taste is fleeting. A hit of butter. A huge hint of flame, a start of a tango between bitter and smoke and it’s gone.
A lingering finish, for sure. But disappointing. Like watching the Hulk leave. A long, drawn out road to nowhere particularly exciting. Red wine? Sure. A touch of muscovado too; but a let down nonethelesss.
A nice whiskey for the price, a let down for the age. Usurped by SMWS 35.147 - and that’s 3 years younger.
