Glen Garioch Founders Reserve Reviews
7 Customer Reviews
the beest malt for me.Smooth,not too heavy and perfect with a dribble of cold water.Makes the big controlled distillers look what they are.Pandering to everyones taste & consequently satisfying no one.Eat your heart out Glenmorangie/Fiddich & Livet.This is real malt as it should be.
Glen Garioch at their best, for me the best in their range
Tastes a little young. The finish could be more smooth. That said, pretty good malt for the price. It reminds me of rye (dry and spicy), in a good way. Nose: alcohol vapors (!), then it reveals menthol followed by honey Palate: tinge of honey, followed by dry eucalyptus, nutmeg and peppermint Finish: vanilla, oak, and even some orange blossom peaks through, quickly followed by a dry pepper that gives a little too much bite. Overall rating: 7.5/10
I have to agree with S. Bennetto. Love the whisky, but really wished they kept the Stagg!! So much tradition thrown away. Very sad to see.......
I went to this distillery on my honeymoon 2 weeks ago and you can't go wrong with this brand. The 12 year old is amazingly good, but the Founder's Reserve is excellent as well. I highly recommend either.
A shame they removed the stag from the labels when they revamped he bottles. A real loss if you ask me!
Read: Glen Gaeriee. No age statement - it is 7-8yo. Waiting for a 12yo edition in years to come:)
