Glen Moray 2007 Port Finish

What they say:

The current Bottle-Your-Own at the Distillery. 10 years old, 6 years in bourbon, 4 in a port cask

What I say:

Sampled during the #GlenMoray Tweet Tasting hosted by Steve @TheWhiskyWire  and Glen Moray’s Master Distiller Graham Coull @GlenMorayGCoull on 24th January 2018. This expression was distilled at Glen Moray distillery in 2007 and then matured initially in an ex-bourbon cask for 6 years before finishing for 4 years in a Tawny Port cask #20050.

Appearance:

Copper and rose gold (9/20) quick med legs, finer drops follow

Nose:

Starts with quite a rapid burst of Rose Turkish delight & red berry coulis, then quite a naked malt note really persists – raspberry ruffle chocolate bars and strawberry mashmallows and strawberry marshmallows, this just keeps evolving a real candyfloss/fairground sugary element to it

Taste:

Sharp, strawberry syrup, kirsch, sour cherry, a little chilli heat develops/possibly spirity, caramel, waters well and relaxes with water, much sweeter – back to candyfloss, raspberries & cream and malt now yum

Finish:

Medium-short with Sour cherry, berries and cream, rose turkish delight hints

Overall:

Definitely one for the nose, I gained so much pleasure nosing the ever-evolving aroma of this dram. For me the palate wasn’t quite a match though water and the finish did re-deliver some of those excellent aromas on the palate. Still a well put together dram and not overly sweet for a port finish.

Score: 84/100

Don’t take my word for it:
