Little Duos, today Glen Moray

A little OB and a little IB, without any hullabaloo, dance, song or fanfare. That's the kind of wee session we like to do…

Glen Moray 'Rum Cask Finish' (40%, OB, +/-2022)

Glen Moray 'Rum Cask Finish' (40%, OB, +/-2022) Three stars
A finishing done in casks of rhum Depaz, a well-know agricole from Martinique that happens to belong to the same owners as Glen Moray's, namely the large French spirit group La Martiniquaise. Colour: white wine. Nose: you do feel both. Glen Moray is a fine, but not very powerful malt whereas Depaz is pretty expressive, which would explain why you do indeed feel both spirits, as if they had been blended together in a, well, a blender. Having said that, the malt is soon to have the upper hand, with some bread, porridge and beer. So not exactly a tuxedo julep (some cocktail that I have never actually tried, to be honest). Mouth: I find this pretty good, but I do prefer both Glen Moray and Depaz al natural. There's some leafiness, a little burnt caramel, some roasted peanuts, some black nougat, a little muscovado and a touch of chicory coffee. The 40% vol. don't help, I have to say. Finish: a little short but pleasantly roasted and nutty. More black nougat, more roasted nuts, some chocolate. Comments: it been pitching and it's been swaying at times, but in the end I think it's a very fine dram. Malt whisky from Martinique – or rhum from Speyside.
SGP:541 - 81 points.

To be able to catch some drams has been a dream of ours for decades, has it not. Let's check this new baby from our friends in Switzerland… Colour: straw. Nose: much, much deeper into anything malty and chalky, with some paraffin and lamp oil, cider apples, green pears, porridge… It is very typically Glen Moray as nature intended (if you will). With water: bonbons coming out, bubblegum, marshmallows… Also more chalk yet, after a short while. Mouth (neat): massive notes of fruit peel, grass, more paraffin and porridge, more chalk as well, drops of grapefruit juice… With water: very good. IPA, fruit drops, green tea… Finish: medium, on similar tones of fruity beers and artisanal cider. Comments: pure malt whisky. Lovely green fruits, breads etc. Classic.
