Glen Moray 1967

Posted by: Ruben Luyten In: Glen Moray

glen_morayGlen Moray is owned by the people from Glenmorangie. The addition ‘Glenlivet’ on the bottle was pretty common until the 1970-80’s, it’s just a reminder that the distillery is located near the Livet river (other distilleries used the same addition, e.g. Glenrothes, Dailuaine, Glenfarclas…). Not to be confused with the distillery ‘The Glenlivet’ which isn’t related to this bottle.

 

Glen Moray 1967 25y (43%, OB 1993, 395 btl.)

Fruity nose. Apricot, vanilla and honey. The sherry cask is easily recognizable. Something of freshly baked bread as well. After a while, it opens up with hints of red fruit and kirsch. Mouth: notes of wood (subtle though), vanilla again, and cooked fruits. The nose was more interesting, but still no faults whatsoever. The finish is more spicy (clove) and tends to chocolate and black tea.

This is a textbook example of good Speyside whisky. It has a perfectly classic profile: soft, round, sweet-fruity and a great balance. Well made.

Score: 88/100.
