!st 2 bottles were excellent. Great body and deep. This last bottle ... if it were a beer I would call it FLAT. No nose and quite tasteless Except for the 48%). If my next bottle is like this I will never purchase it again.
The main note I get is "grassy". Reminds me of Kilchoman, in this respect (thought not as oily). Many people love this taste, as it seems common to traditionally made whisky, but its not for me. I commend Glen Garoch for presenting this in natural color with non-chill filtering, & respect what the new ownership has done with this distillery
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.
