Glen Moray 1959 (Bottled 1999) Rare Vintage /50,9%/
Glen Moray Distillery was founded in 1897 on site of a former brewery located on the western outskirts of Elgin. The distillery went bankrupt in 1910 and ten years later was acquired by Macdonald & Muir, the owners of Glenmorangie. In 1958 the distillery underwent a major reconstruction including replacing traditional floor maltings with Saladin Box. Here we have Glen Moray from the different era, distilled in 1959, when the distillery was equipped with a single pair of stills and produced just a fraction of its today’s output (after the recent upgrades Glen Moray is equipped with nine stills and produces 6.5 million liters of spirit per annum). The whisky spent about four decades in oak and was bottled at 50.9% abv in February 1999. Only 400 bottles were produced.
Nose: a little restrained, honey, Turkish delight, orange peel, dark berries, chamomile tea, pickled grape leaves, tobacco, forest floor, hints of camphor and oak.
Palate: sweet pastries, salted caramel, raisins, gooseberries, rosehip marmalade, grilled asparagus, herbal tea, mulling spice, and oak tannins.
Finish: medium long and pretty oaky, with notes of dried dark fruits, caramel, roasted nuts, and mixed herbs.
