Glen Moray 1992-2018, 25yo, Bourbon Hogshead, 52.5% – Cadenhead

I generally quite like Glen Moray. Especially from independent bottlers, because the official bottlings tend to be rather too soft and gentle, almost a bit flat. Of course, they bottle all kinds of randomness at the distillery through the Distillery … Continue reading

Glen Morey 1977-2012, Bourbon Hogshead MoS 12021, 52.1% – Malts of Scotland

Glen Moray 24, 1992-2017, 50.9% – Cadenhead

Glen Moray is one of those distilleries that make an amazing spirit, but in their own releases there’s often so much done to it, that it loses its greatness. A quick search on the internet reveals there’s a Cabernet, Sherry, … Continue reading

Glen Moray Distillery, and their tasting kit

Last October I was staying in Speyside with my family. And even though my kids are 6, 4 and 1 years old, I found I had the moral and educational obligation to show them a whisky distillery. The closest one … Continue reading

One of these samples that I found in my stash when selecting which drams to bring on the summer holiday. I only looked it up now and saw that it was drawn from a ‘toasted hogshead’, which is an interesting … Continue reading

So, after the first zero pointer (the one coming up tonight my be the second…) I thought I pay some time digesting what I should pick to get back in. At least get back in a bit. It’s not like … Continue reading

Glen Moray 13, ‘The Dunnage Bakehouse’, ex-gin cask, 58.3% – SMWS

A while ago, on ‘The Spirits Business’ there was an announcement for a bottling by the SMWS that was drawn from a gin cask. As far as I (and they) know that’s a first, and that peaked my interest. I decided … Continue reading
