Glen Garioch 15 Year Old Reviews
Tasting Notes by Billy A
Nose: Sweet and malty, with gentle woody spice. Sour lemon peel sits behind the sweetness, with toffee and hazelnuts.
Palate: Oily and sweet, with more nuts and toffee, as well as buttered brown toast. A little bit of tongue drying tannin, but still juicy, with baked apple and vanilla cream.
Finish: Butter toffee, hazelnuts and their skins, crisp apple and a touch of candied orange peel.
Comment: Very much on message: a whisky that shows off what Glen Garioch are all about. It's rich and malty with some solid spice and a pleasantly oily mouthfeel.
Showcasing Glen Garioch’s deliciously different house style following its reawakening in 1997, this first chapter in a four-part story reveals the spirit’s character at 15 years old – rich and full-bodied with fruit and spice.
Rich Highland toffee, creamy butterscotch, chocolate ginger biscuits and tangy citrus peel lead to honey-glazed baked apricots and cinnamon-spiced orange interlaced with smooth malted caramel and barley sugar, with a ginger-marmalade-on-warm-buttered-granary-toast finish.
