We’ve seen a few Glen Moray 2007 casks from independent bottlers lately, and it’s a safe bet to say this could be a sister cask. We’ll never know though. Glen Moray 10 Years bottled by That Boutique-y Whisky Company.
Glen Moray 10 yo (48,6%, That Boutique-y Whisky Company 2018, 376 btl.)
Nose: sweet barley, wine gums, some beehive notes (honey, wax), white chocolate. Sweet and candied. Hints of sugared grapefruit juice. Goes on with bananas, pears, vanilla cake and a slightly synthetic note, maybe plasticine or cheap marshmallows.
Mouth: rather more bananas, sugarcane, custard and a slightly grassy / zesty note (grapefruit skin). White pepper, leather and some punchy green oak, with echoes of American (rye) whiskey. Young and slightly aggressive but the flavours are nice.
Finish: rather long, on zesty fruits, with barley and herbs.
While the nose is really enjoyable and aromatic, the palate is a little more simple and comes with a raw edge. Available from Master of Malt.
