This time I enjoyed a lovely and inspiring range of Glen Moray. A promising box with very attractive bottles on the inside.

The inside was as you could say; incredible, I was really looking forward to these spirits. I’m a woman who loves a challenge. And these 5 bottles were whispering to me like in a fairytale; try us and you’ll be one happy woman! Don’t try us, and you are missing a lot of fun. Guess what I did ….

Let’s move on to the tasting notes.

1. New Make ( 69% )

  • Color: A transparent mystery
  • Nose: A bam, creamy, banana, tropical, the more you smell the more you discover
  • Taste: Strong oily, creamy with a bite of the tropics in a storm
  • Finish: Lovely long and a powerful whoah!

2. Classic ( 40% )

4. Peated New Make ( 69% )

How much I love each and one of the above one has made a big impression. This is the Peated New Make. The more you smell it, the more you discover. Yes, I tried this with water and it makes it more enjoyable with every sniff.

I would certainly recommend this beauty to every one who is in for a whisky challege. Next to the others though!  When you catch one, enjoy!
