Glen Moray Peated Spirit Batch #1 Cask 141, 60.6%

Price: $28.00 Issue: Spring 2013 Reviewer: Dave Broom

Another Glen Moray, this time in a substantially different guise than normal. Yes, this is fresh, sweet, and malty — to be precise, draff-like — but there's smoke as well, and a fairly decent belt of it. Young it may be — amazingly it's less than 2 years old — but the palate, especially with water, is cleansing and with vanilla, good phenols, and orris-like dryness. Very intriguing. £18 (200 ml)
