Interesting fact… Glen Garioch 21 Year Old whisky spells its name whisky as it originates in Scotland. Had it been produced in America its name would be Glen Garioch 21 Year Old whiskey, instead of 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.
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.
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?
