The colour is pale gold, and the fresh nose is marked by exotic fruits.
The palate is light but smooth, with some herbal notes.

Personal Comment
Little whisky without much character. This malt, belonging to the Glenmorangie group (who is also owner of Ardbeg) does not leave a great memory. The nose is "shy", and the first impression in the mouth in not easy to define. The impression is certainly not bad, but nothing announces a great whisky.
65/100
A second tasting denied partially the conclusions of the first one. Without making it a very great whisky, the sweet and balanced character of this whisky (which remains a little bit simple) got quite a better quoting the second time. Probably a matter of mood...
79/100
The very floral nose is very sweet, probably too sweet and without a great complexity, with however some remote hints of smoke and a slight peppery touch. In the palate, no surprise. The nose is confirmed, the evident lack at complexity too. Very sweet, maybe sickly sweet... The finish is rather long and a little more interesting than the taste itself....
70/100.
The nose thinks it is sniffing a bunch of flowers, but quite discrete flowers, not exuberant ones. In the mouth, same impression: sweetness without complexity. A finish continuing on sweetness, however discretely seasoned with a touch of spices. Certainly a rather good whisky, but personally I'm unable to really appreciate it.

Color: Gold
A very nice nose that combines notes of fresh cut grass, sweet notes of honey, a hint of mint and some little residual yeast in the background. Pleasant and complex, the nose portends a great pleasure to taste. It evolves quite sharply over time. New sensations appear progressively, sometimes improving the overall perception of scents such as mint, sometimes less pleasant, like the smell of yeast that are noticeable.
The mouth is slightly more linear than was the nose. Here it is mainly the sweetness that takes precedence. The eccentricities of the nose is not perpetuated here, which is unfortunate. After a magnificent start this tasting comes down to something much more traditional, less exuberant, while we would have loved this wonderful nose is translated into a mouth of the same ilk.
The final steps unfortunately the mouth rather than the nose. Relatively discrete, it is medium length and leaves no other lasting memory than a good fruity whisky. Nothing more. Too bad.

Personal Comment
The nose is marked by both wood and vanilla. A great sweetness as well, where there is nothing to suggest the high percentage of alcohol of this spirit. In the palate, a persistent and sweet taste of wood, without great complexity on a background of pear alcohol... No aggressiveness at all neither. The finish is relatively short, and marked by the wood, and later on a kind of sugared after taste appears. This bottling is interesting because it is the only Scotch single malt I know to be matured in a first fill American oak cask (new cask)

During the second tasting, the nose was particulary marked by spices, pepper and some woody hints on a sweeter background, vanilla or malt. In the palate, the alcohol dominates quickly, and the taste is rather poor compared to the nose, although there is a kind of complexity here too. Spices and wood disappear soon, making room for something like a fruit alcohol with a less pleasant acid character. The finish recalls some woody notes, but remains dominated by the alcohol.

Glen Moray 1984
Personal Comment
Quite an expressive nose with clear floral hints developing slowly on red fruit notes and a touch of wood appears on the background behind a veil of smoke.
The mouth is a mix of honey and nuts. A sickly sweet taste with a very light touch of bitterness, the whole missing clearly any personality. A light higher percentage of alcohol could have been beneficial.
The finish is quite long and a bit sickly, keeping teh memory of discrete wood notes with honey.
Probably that sweet whisky lovers will appreciate, but it is not my case.

Personal Comment
The nose is pleasantly marked by the sherry. Nice fruity hints mix with Marshmallow give a nice complexity to the promising nose.
The mouth is extremely pleasant, and very smooth despite the percentage of alcohol. Sherry is obviously present, perfectly integrated in the fruity hints.
The finish is exceptionally long and warm. Great smoothness too. Sherry and a touch of chocolate. Great whisky.
