The first impression is sweet and inviting, like a hint of candy floss. A scent of sun-ripened orange followed by a gentle embrace of vanilla and caramel spreads. A drop of coffee rounds off the flavour profile, subtle yet remarkable.


The Glen Moray reveals a powerful presence of ethanol, which quickly gives way to a rich sweet flavour. Flavours such as juicy banana chips and a pleasant malt tone take over. An oaky spiciness unfolds in the mouth, accompanied by a silky, buttery mouthfeel.


The finish is of medium length, a delicate note of liquorice chocolate remains.


The bourbon-esque flavour of the Glen Moray Fired Oak 10 year old gives it an exciting personality that appeals to us even more than its older brother, the Glen Moray 15. Well-formed and with sufficient variety, the Scotch is really good for its price.

Rating: 76/100 - Very Good (Marcel: 75 | Sascha: 77)

Value for Money: 5/5 - Very Good
