GLEN MORAY 2001 35.86 'SUMPTUOUS BREAKFAST DRAM' - THE SCOTCH MALT WHISKY SOCIETY

Our wee group that travelled to the Spirit of Speyside Festival had talked about us visiting Glen Moray for the Manager's Tour on Saturday, but we couldn't quite squeeze it it, so we decided to give it a pass this time - though the tour is supposed to be very good :-/ Anyway, we had to fit in an event closer to our previous one at Glenfarclas... But its a tour on my 'to-do'-list for a future festival...

Meanwhile, I'll review another Glen Moray I came across from the SMWS

Glen Moray 2001 (17.05.2001) 11yo 'Sumptuous Breakfast dram' 59,3%, 1st fill sherry butt, 629 bottles, The Scotch Malt Whisky Society

Colour is amber

Nose:
Spirity, hot, baked note, cinnamon buns, nutty and resinous, with a few drops of water some coffee and chocolate notes appear along with some mint

Taste:
Bitter nuttiness on arrival, then spices and a streak of sulphur/rubbery note. Still hot and spirity on the palate, sadly... Curry and oranges and burnt baking too.

Nice notes, really but it does not add quite make up for the hot spirit and sulphur/rubber notes
Still, could have been worse...

80/100!
