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.
