Customer Rating
A bottling of 26-year-old, 1990-vintage Glen Garioch by Signatory, specially selected by our team and released at The Whisky Show: Old & Rare in February 2017. Following the theme of the show, it's an old fashioned Glen Garioch, produced when they still had a bit of smokiness in their malt. That's become integrated and adds a rich and spicy backbone to this fruity dram.

Tasting Notes

  • Tasting notes by Billy Abbott (The Whisky Exchange)

    Nose: Freshly polished oak tables and piles of orchard fruit – fragrantly ripe apples and pears. Barley sugar and fruity boiled sweets bring up the rear, with accompanying spiced vanilla sponge cake and a hint of cream.

    Palate: Big spice to start: pine, nutmeg, incense sticks and some barrel-char smokiness. Bitter orange peel follows, leading into a green and leafy core, with spiced stewed apples. Aniseed balls and liquorice sit at the back, with oatcakes and spiced fruit loaf.

    Finish: Barley-sugar sweetness, singed raisins and baked apples fade to leave apples and spice.

    Comment:Well-aged Glen Garioch, with stacks of spice and fruit, and hints of charred smoke.

    4.5 stars. Very well balanced; not too much cask influence, which is nice to see as it lets the spirit speak for itself. Reminded me of the 31 year Caol Ila Signatory cask strength with its subtle smokiness. Mine didn't come with the metal tube though. Oh well.
