This is a rare official Glen Moray 1966, a single cask bottled in the early 1990s.
Glen Moray 26 yo 1966
(43%, OB 1992, 255 btl.)
Nose: very juicy, fragrant sherry. Lots of peaches and melons, some vaguely tropical touches as well. Rose petals with paraffin and whiffs of Nivea cream. Bergamot and Neroli. Plenty of waxed floors and leather too. Fruity and aromatic, rather feminine actually.
Mouth: classic sherried whisky, with a big fruity side again – berries, plums, dried apricots, lots of oranges. Light banana. Hints of vanilla and eucalyptus honey. A peppery note and waxed oak underneath. Nicely drying with a soft smoky hint as well. Quite excellent.
Finish: long, smooth, balancing between juicy fruits and spicy oak.
Delicious stuff, right up my alley. These 1960s Glen Morays should be on everyone’s must-try list really. Seen in auctions for around € 600. Thanks, Gunther.
