Glen Moray ‘Rhum Agricole’ (46.3%, OB, Cask End Mission, UK unique, +/-2021, 3,060 bottles) Three stars and a half

I appear to recollect this was 6 yo Gen Moray (or was it 10?) additional matured for two extra-years in rhum wooden. Nicely, I’d suppose they might have added an age assertion if it had been 10+2. We have tried one other Glen Moray that had been completed in Depaz rhum casks earlier this month, however this very NAS had relatively been completed in St James, one other identify that does belong to La Martiniquaise, similar to Glen Moray and Depaz. That is most likely very younger… Color: straw. Nostril: relatively a variety of dry rhum at first sniffs, with whiffs of fresh-squeezed sugarcanes, vegetable peel (asparagus for instance), grass that was minimize two days in the past, somewhat burnt caramel, then relatively varnishes and glues, all the time a superb check in my ebook. The malt begins to talk out after a minute, with croissants, beer and shortbread. Touches of bananas flambéed, that is the rhum retaliating. Mouth: as soon as once more it begins relatively grassy and peely, however pineapples and bananas are quickly to take over. Goes on with some robust honey, muscovado, zests, black tea, inexperienced tea, some ginger, amaretti… End: fairly lengthy however extra grassy and bitter than anticipated. Inexperienced peppercorn, grass, inexperienced pears… And a few banana pores and skin and zests within the aftertaste. Feedback: an excellent meta-spirit, typically even a rumsky.

Glen Moray 2014/2022 ‘Oloroso Totally Matured’ (60%, OB, UK unique, warehouse 1, 1,950 bottles) Four stars

Color: gold. Nostril: an outdated armagnac, some espresso liqueur, an outdated looking rifle, some very outdated brandy de Jerez, and an enormous energy. It is somewhat laborious to fathom that that is nonetheless an toddler, at solely seven or eight years of age. With water: espresso and chocolate, plus a drop of Ténarèze. Mouth (neat): espresso and marc or espresso and kirschwasser. That is precisely what we name ‘café-schnapps’ in Alsace. With water: thick and heavy, coating, ridden with Demerara molasses and heavy VDN (say the thickest Rasteaux that may maintain you heat and busy for months). End: very lengthy, clearly winey and molassy. Walnut wine. Feedback: very heavy, touching the extremities of Whiskydom right here. Not too certain that is nonetheless malt whisky, however alternatively, many legendary outdated bottlings had been like this. Whats up, Macallan?
