Glen Moray Elgin Classic, 40%

Price: $56 Issue: Winter 2014 Reviewer: Dave Broom

The onionskin hue gives the initial indication that this was finished in a port pipe. The nose is light and fruity: raspberry and cranberry juice, even a sprig of mint. Fresh, but with a background funkiness. In time, there's ripe melon, then lightly musty wood comes through. The palate is light, giving the effect of diluted fruit juice. It's all just a bit lacking in weight.£25
