What's in a name? Glen Garioch 21 Year Old whisky is called whisky because it's produced in Scotland. Were it from America it would be spelled Glen Garioch 21 Year Old whiskey, rather than whisky.
Nose: Fragrant, perfumed with cigar leaf, leather, rope. Sherried fruitiness. Hint of peat.
Palate: Thick, buttery. Feinty, waxy honey. Chewy oak. Sweetness.
Finish: Pungent, smoky, vanilla, bitter on the tail.
Did someone throw in a Bowmore cask? Or is just coincidence that the 2 distilleries fall under one holding company and this expression tastes so much like bourbon-casked Bowmore?

What a wonderful whisky this is - flavoursome yet never overpowering! There are several layers of flavours of sherry, mild peat, oak and honey. A superb example of the Distillers magic.
