Glen Moray 1989 (Asta Morris)

The latest release in the Asta Morris range is a Glen Moray 1989. I tried a cask sample of this whisky a couple of months ago, and I was immediately convinced.



Glen Moray 1989 - Asta MorrisGlen Moray 29 yo 1989 (53,2%, Asta Morris 2019, ex-bourbon cask, 204 btl.)

Nose: fresh and full of orchard fruits, with secondary notes of apricots and guava. Juicy with a slightly floral edge (orange blossom). Lots of polished oak, manuka honey and a little sunflower oil.

Mouth: mirabelles, lime and pear, as well as a little coconut liqueur. Mixed with some cinnamon and vanilla this makes it quite bourbonny, as in American whiskey-like (without the sweetness). Aromatic wood, hints of ginger and pepper. Still some honey.

Finish: long, with fruit tea, barley sugar, lime and wildflowers.

Super good, fruity Glen Moray with nice traces of actual bourbon. Totally my style. Around € 240, being distributed to stores as we speak.

Score: 90/100
