Nose - The colour of sharp honey, on the nose heathery floral notes are balanced with the richness of poached pears and the sweetness of malted barley. Palete - Creme brulee and sweet ripe banana at first, then comes a light oakiness with pear fruitiness, leading to a long smooth, creamy and fragrant finish.
Ultimate Beverage Challenge 93 points - (Tried & True Award)- Attractive wheat field gold color. Bouquet features roasted grain nuttiness, toasted malt, cigarette ash, new leather, grapefruit. Taste thrust is towards the dry graininess that’s nicely supported by oaky vanilla, honey, and toffee through the long aftertaste. (Mar 2015)

Glen Garioch has quickly become a favorite distiller of Scotland and this 12 year old bottling is a great defense to this statement. A nose of orange peel, tea, and brine, the tasting of the dram had these notes more pronounced. The finish brings to mind salted caramel.

One of the oldest operating distilleries in Scotland – and its most easterly – Glen Garioch (pronounced Geery in the ancient Doric dialect still spoken in these parts) has been making its mighty malt in the quaint and historic market town of Oldmeldrum, near Aberdeen in North East Scotland, ever since 1797. Shielded from the world’s prying eyes, deep in the fertile ‘Granary of Aberdeenshire’, and only ever produced in small, precious batches, Glen Garioch is a rare find indeed, but warmly appreciated by those who like a hearty Highland malt, non chill-filtered as nature intended, with a wholesome maltiness, honeyed sweetness and delicious creamy texture to savour.
