Tasting notes by Serge Valentin: 89 points

Always loved the little frog on Asta Morris’ bubbly labels. No, no only as a Frenchman…

Colour: white wine.

Nose: was this made by the Coca-Cola Company? I’m finding quite some Sprite and Fanta (or similar stuff), then barley syrup, then moist sponge cake and gingerbread, with wee whiffs of old books and magazines in the background. It’s really geared towards beer after two minutes or two; no wonder, the bottler here is from Belgium.

Mouth: very good. Cherries, Kriek, malty beer, cakes, caramel, good gravy, pumpernickel, tiny herbs and teas, touches of molasses, marzipan and gingerbread, some lighter fruitcake, banana cake… Fantastic development.

Finish: long, perfectly caramelly (in a good way), on stout and some sweet sauces. Blueberry jam, gingerbread, spicy oak… (some smart flash finishing?)

Comments: absolutely terrific, this little session starts well. Believe me, twenty years ago, no one (except for the manager) would have imagined ‘new’ Glen Moray could become this good. Well done Mr. Asta and Mrs. Morris!
