This 1997 bottling not only marks Glen Garioch’s 200th anniversary, it also represents the year the distillery switched from peated to unpeated spirit, paving the way for its much-acclaimed fruitiness with a hint of spice. Bottled at cask strength for maximum flavour, this is aged in 2nd-fill bourbon barrels for a rich layer of toffee and cream on top of all that fruit.
