Renaissance Chapter 1
The first release in the Renaissance series from Highland distillery Glen Garioch. Chapter One (it's being released in four chapters) is an unpeated 15 year old single malt Scotch whisky matured in bourbon and Sherry casks. The whiskies from this series will all be distilled after 1997, a brief period where the distillery was closed. 12,000 bottles were produced.
Look out for further releases in the coming years from the Glen Garioch Renaissance series, which will be 16, 17, and 18 year old single malts.
one of the best
I've had the Glen Garioch 10 year old as well as the Founders Reserve. Both are excellent. However this is the most complex, flavoursome and satisfying whisky I have ever tasted and I've literally tasted hundreds of malts. It has a rich honeyed toast and apricots flavour and a beautiful long finish that makes you want more. I cant think of a better malt at this or even twice the price.
