An everyday, mid-weight malt.
10 Years Old
Standard (Distillery or blended)
Nose: Clean, cereal-dominated nose: nutty wholemeal toast with some butter. In time a soft toffee note/apple sponge. Water crisps it up. Fresh and quite light.
Palate: Soft and mealy with pleasant light tangerine notes. Clean. Medium dry.
Finish: Light, clean. Floury.
Comment: An everyday, mid-weight malt.
Nose: Flowery. Roses. Darjeeling tea. Peat.
Palate: Firm maltiness. Cake-like. Slightly honeyed.
Finish: Surge of spiciness. White pepper.
Comment: I have always enjoyed Glen Garioch as one of the few peaty whiskies still made in the Highlands. I hope this peaty character does not totally vanish.
