Insider knowledge: Glen Garioch 8 Year Old whisky is named whisky by virtue of the fact it's from Scotland. If distilled in America the spelling would be Glen Garioch 8 Year Old whiskey, as opposed to whisky.
Nose: Quite green and grassy. Fresh peat. Soft hay, cereals, tangy zest.
Palate: Rich, winter spice, malt. Wood smoke, walnut.
Finish: Quite long, coffee, honey on buttered toast, touch of bitter dark chocolate on the tail.
Got a gift of this a few years back.
Always been an admirer of the Dimple Pinch, The Glen Morangie 18yr, Lismore, but you get the picture. The eight year Glen Garioch is my NEW favorite for the last 7 years! Just too good to serve to folk who drop in and annoy! THEY get the Dewars!
