Customer Rating

Introduced to Glen Garioch's standard range in late 2010, this 12yo is a mix of ex-bourbon and sherry casks, and like the other distillery bottlings since the revamp, has been bottled at a feisty 48%. A real charmer.

    This glengarioch 12 is supberb, probably one of the best value for money. Bottled at 48% this just explodes with flavour. It tastes like highland park 12 but stronger and without any peatness. I am extremely picky with my scotch. After reading up many reviews I''m glad I grabbed this. Will not disappoint, just coats your mouth with a thick honey oaky syrupy type of feeling. Will always have this in my collection now. Excellent daily dram mmmm!

    I am still fairly new to whisky so don't have a huge basis for comparison, but I have to say this is one of the most impressive I have tried so far. The taste is very strong and distinctive and the quality seems very high for a reasonable price. The tumbler that came with this was very good quality too.

    A cracker of a highland malt marrying Sherry and Bourbon casks at 48% ABV. It coats the mouth with terrific full flavours of honey, fruit and warm spices. Well worth the few pounds premium over the more mundane Founders Reserve.

    also got a free sample recently and had a similar positive reaction. Nose of melon with ground ginger with lingering maltiness. More melon and spice in the flavour and a long gingery finish. Quite profound spice, quite superb. Next order I place - a bottle of this will be top of my list.

    For your money you don't just get a fantastic whisky but 1 at the strength that in my opinion all whisky should be 46-48% . This is simply a steal and is now 1 of my faves.

    What a fantastic Whisky! light spicy nose and flavour of heather & pear, and what a smooth lovely finish. Already down half the bottle in no time!

    An initial spiciness gives way to a complex honeyed finish. My new favourite whisky.

    Had this in a complimentary decanter at the Meldrum house hotel and just had to find out what it was called after sampling it! Very smooth and long lasting depth. Fantastic.

    In 2010, Morrison Bowmore did a make-over/relaunch of this malt. As a result, it is now non-chill filtered and at a higher ABV. Moreover, I think better quality casks are being used. The result is a porridge drizzled with brown sugar delight!

    tasted really good, like a festival on the palate. It smells the oak fragrance, definitely will purchase it again.
