What's in a name? Glen Garioch 12 Year Old whisky is called whisky because it's produced in Scotland. Were it from America it would be spelled Glen Garioch 12 Year Old whiskey, rather than whisky.
Tried this at a blind tasting one night and was immediately impressed by the smooth rich taste, the slow velvet slide as it went down, the "afterglow" is smile inducing and "Yes please, I will have another" is ikpossible to stop saying. Value for money is an understatement. Have had 6 bottles in the last 18 months and, NO, I dont share it with friends, its mine for me to sit and be personally sated with.
I got so many retirement gifts that I'm not sure who gave me what. I must find out who the discerning person was who bought me Glen Garioch. I am careful with malts as I am not a great fan of "peat". Glen Garioch is so smooth and has what I would call the real flavour and taste of what I expect of Scotch whisky. I agree with another reviewer who says he doesn't SHARE Glen Garioch. It is too good to share unless it is with someone who might appreciate it. Secret Pleasure.
