Glen Garioch 12 year old
Distillery: Glen Garioch
Bottling: Distillery Own
Cask: Marriage of ex-bourbon and ex-sherry cask.
This is Glen Garioch's first "age statement" malt which was distilled after reopening in 1997.
Dark Chocolate, Heather, slight motor oil. Wine gum sweets and vanilla emerging.
Buttered toast. Heather.
Sweet, fruity and nutty finish but relatively short.
I look forward to the distillery releasing some older expressions from after the 1997 reopening.
