GLEN MORAY 1991 35.80 'STEAMED APPLE SPONGE PUDDING' - THE SCOTCH MALT WHISKY SOCIETY

Now, Glen Moray is a distillery you - as with plenty others in Speyside - can't really miss, especially if you visit the city of Elgin which most people do when there. Located within the city's boundaries you can walk there - which is probably a good idea anyway, as you'll probably be having a few drams. Rumours say they usually do a cracking 'bottle-your-own' at the distillery - that alone justifies a visit, don't you think? :-)

It's time for the final Glen Moray review..

Glen Moray 1991 35.80 (25.10.1991/xx.12.2012) 21yo 'Steamed Apple Sponge Pudding' 59,7%, 2nd fill ex-bourbon hogshead, 190 bottles, The Scotch Malt Whisky Society

Colour is full straw

Nose:
Vanilla oak, apple and sweet mango and melon, hint of wet newspaper and burst of alcohol. Also getting fruit tea, aniseed and a little solventy note.

Taste:
Very malty, peppery arrival, candied fruits, ginger and apple cake with breadcrumbs and whipped cream (Danish speciality) add to that some candied almonds.

I recommend the addition of a little water to this one to take away the top alc notes/burn.

87/100!
