Glen Garioch 1990 Reviews
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.
