Glen Moray 1977 (Malts of Scotland)

Yes, the label says Glen Morey although it should obviously be Glen Moray 1977. There are relatively few bottlings from this distillery, let alone of this respectable age. This expressions was bottled by Malts of Scotland, but already back in 2012.



Glen Moray 1977 - Malts of ScotlandGlen Morey 34 yo 1977 (52,1%, Malts of Scotland 2012, bourbon hogshead, MoS 12021, 172 btl.)

Nose: honeyed, with a lot of berry fruits. Hints of pineapple, tangerine and other lightly exotic notes. Furniture polish, as well as some plain oak, a little plankish even. Menthol. Marshmallows. Some slightly perfumy notes too.

Mouth: fairly loud, green oak. Grapefruits and lemons which blend with the oak and leave a high level of acidity and juiciness. Plenty of aromatic, but also lightly bitter herbs. Citrus green tea and mint. Quite tannic towards the end.

Finish: long, dry and herbal.

A very classy nose, with a lot of aromatic qualities of the oak. On the palate the dryness of that same oak begins to take over. Looses quite some points once you start to sip it.

Score: 86/100
