Glen Moray 1994 Berry’s Best


Glen Moray is a distillery often overlooked, and this is in fact the first one I’ve ever taken notes for. This one is a bottling by independent bottler Berry Bros & Rudd for the 60th anniversary of the French Whisky Shop/Distributor, La Maison du Whisky(LMDW). It was part of an evening out whisky club, Malt Mongers Israel, did with a number of LMDW exclusive bottlings.

Aged 21 years. 56.3%ABV. Matured in a toasted oak cask. No colourant added, non-chill filtered and bottled at cask strength from a cask 5561.

Nose: Bananas in cinnamon. Sultanas. Marzipan. Slightly medicinal, reminds me a little of Mercurichrome.

Palate: Orange peels. Cinnamon. Orange cough syrup. Honey. Custard.

Finish: Long. Boiled sweets. Cotton candy. Cinnamon buns. Vanilla.

Would I buy this: Yes

Would I order this in a bar: Yes

Would I drink this if someone gave me a glass: Yes

VFM: 2/5

This one wasn’t very complex on the nose, but was very pleasant. Then it hits the palate and the flavour just explodes. A really lovely, sweet, bourbon influenced dram.
