Glen Moray Classic is the distillery's entry level single malt, aged for an average of seven years in ex-bourbon casks, of which a high percentage are first fill - easy drinking, honeyed and excellent value.
Nose: Rather closed, with just the malted sweetness coming through.
Palate: Light, grassy and sweet with notes of green apple and lemon.
Finish: Medium-length and slightly drying with the lemon notes remaining through to the end.
Comment: It’s not a whisky to set the world alight, but that’s not what it’s meant to do. An easy-to-drink, entry-level single malt that’s a bargain at this price.

I was very pleasantly surprised by this whiskey, for the reputation of a bog standard single malt it was complex, pleasant with some lovely flavours, vanilla, honey, cinnamon, spices and dried fruits. And for the money your paying it is more than worth it, in my opinion a bit underrated deserves more attention. Lovely dram.

A very pleasant good value summer drinking malt. Ordinary blended whisky can be more expensive than this. Single malt over a blend every time. Do not put in ice unless you want to kill the flavour, just a tea spoon of cold still pure water. This whisky was far better than I expected for the price.

Whiskey to be drank one way on the rocks! I found this whiskey to be very smooth and exciting on the palate!! Thoroughly recommended !!

Tried 2 bottles of this now and both were awesome. The first one was outside having a BBQ and found it to be very citrus and a beautifully clean flavour. Second was at home in the warm and found it to be a very smooth and easy to drink single malt. I suspect ones surroundings have an impact on the palate and this whisky was gorgeous in both. Highly recommended !

This is one of the smoothest malts I have tasted in this price range, it was a very pleasent drink, nice flavour not too peaty. I would certainly look to purchase another bottle

A refreshingly simple Speyside malt. Very smooth and especially good when blended with a little cold water. I,ve tried many other malts previously but with this malt I am guaranteed a very pleasant drinking experience with no nasty surprises. I would highly recommend it.
