Glen Moray 15 Year Old Speyside Single Malt 40%

More Glen Moray, this time a look at the 15 year old bottled at 40%

Another excellent value whisky here, a little bit more hard to find but worth it and is priced between forty and forty five pounds.
Big thanks again to Steve at http://www.thewhiskywire.com and http://www.GlenMoray.com for setting me up with the sample.
Nose. Subtle at first, needs a good ten minutes sitting in the glass to really open up, I took one or two drops of water, Oak and a touch of smoke but sweet too, fruity and jammy but mixed jam like apricot and strawberry jam mixed, floral too, Lavender seems to carry in several of the Glen Moray expressions and I found it here.
Palate. Chocolate and coffee, biscuits, chocolate hob nobs to be precise, black butter and a touch of pipe tobacco.
Finish. Medium, warm and a nice creamy mouthful leaving a touch of smoke and chocolate.
This is decent, well priced and complex enough to be like the peated version in that it might open some doors for people getting into whisky and fancy drinking an older expression.
The Captain.
