Single Malt Scotch - to 12 Yrs - 2013
San Francisco World Spirits Competition
What's in a name? Glen Garioch 1797 Founders Reserve whisky is called whisky because it's produced in Scotland. Were it from America it would be spelled Glen Garioch 1797 Founders Reserve whiskey, rather than whisky.
I had a sample of this at Molly Macphersons in Savannah. A great sipping drink with a light sweetness and a hint of dry.

My son got a bottle of this as a gift and I was horrified to see him trying to add lemonade....asked him why, he said, "Too strong for me, dad!" You will be glad to hear that I have now taken charge of this bottle of superior malt; the first time I have tried any of the Garioch clan and I am suitably impressed. Easy to drink, soft notes hint of sweeties....niiiice

Obtained a bottle duty free for a week in Portugal after having sampled both the 12 yo and this. Wonderful whisky and very well priced.
Recently re-tried both at a tasting event, and thought the 12 yo is even better. Depends on your mood - buy both.
BTW - Glen Garioch was lightly peated before 1994 (?) closure. Since reopening there is no peat.

Had a drop of this at my Dad's this weekend and thought it was top. Much better than Glenfiddich and Glenmorangie (in my opinion) which are similar priced ones I've got at home. Excellent value.
