Glen Garioch 1999 #30 Bottling Note

Batch 30 of the very special Glen Garioch 1999, matured entirely in Oloroso Sherry casks. Look forward to some delicious single malt whisky!

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose: Caramel hits you first, but letting it breathe unearths some juicy citrus and red berry notes.

Palate: Treacle with more plum and sultana notes then orange twangs liven it up.

Finish: Some welcome spice chimes in during the long finish.

Overall: Fans of whisky aged in sherry casks should be climbing all over each other to get a bottle of this.

Grand Stuff

After making another purchase, I decided to buy a few Drams for myself. I bought this, and boy does it have a kick. A local distillery to me and surprisingly my first try of their produce, well, It wont be my last. I think a bottle To Me, From Me will be finding it's way under the Christmas tree. As the title says, Grand Stuff

Really glad I got a sample.... Ill leave it there

Nose; Slight burnt matches, not much alcohol burn on the nose, sweet icing sugar , salty, burnt rubber, elastic bands, really trying to get past the lit matches! I'm getting Wet Tweed Coat ( This is really odd! ) with add water. Cherries and Dark fruits

Mouth; Not Bad. Caramel, no alcohol roughness, Crystallised oranges you find in fruit and nut mix, warming, dark bitter chocolate ( 70% Style!) oranges, slight white pepper. Coffee ( with water )

Finnish; Dry, slightly oaky, slight hint of Oloroso but not so much. Lingering Spice of Chilli Peppers.

Comments; A really Black Sheep of a 'Sherry Bomb'. The Sulphur is undeniably there what makes the nose quite hard to get around ( it really is quite strong!) mouth and Finnish are really not bad at all. Really glad I got a sample.... I'll leave it there.

Not a pro...

Cette bouteille m'a été offert par un collègue de travail qui en connait plus que moi sur les vins et les Scotchs. Je suis un amateur de Balvenie, à cause que... ??? Je l'aime... Je Suis vraiment heureux d'avoir eu l'occasion de déguster le Glen Garioch, que normalement je ne pourrai jamais me payer ( pas plus que le Balvenie que je me paye quand même parfois... ) Il est plus tourbe, moins sucré que le Balvenie, mais c'est très ok, très plaisant ! Je suis bien heureux qu'il ai des Écossais qui font du Scotch sur cette planète ! (-= Merci ! Daniel Gingras ! Je suis très honoré que tu penses que je mérites un tel cadeaux. (-=

A treat!

Since I absolutely loved this bottle I need to give it a little boost in rating after the unjust and unfair review I have just seen. Whisky like any other taste based product is a question of... taste, but! A certain objectivity is necessary. Half a star... seriously half a star! I wouldn't give Jack Daniel's half a star. The tasting notes are correct to me except for the sulfur, I didn't notice that, maybe letting it air out a little, don't know, but since every other person I shared this whisky with liked it as well I just can't see any justification for a half a star! That's exagerated, bottom shelf super market whisky exaggeration. The whisky is an easy drink except for the high dose of alcohol with an intense sherry and rich body. Cutting it definitely helps it open up like most strong whiskies. Good for the price, a delicious treat. Enjoy!

Sulphured and Disgusting

Got this as a sample in a tasting set from the chaps at Master of Malt. I trust their intuition, but this one missed the mark by a long shot! I'm a taster at heart, and always try to find any pleasing nuance within the experience, but this sulphured dram sadly had none.

From a neat pour, the nose is dark and strong. Caramel is there, but an underlying earthiness and soured note like black cherries plays roughly against the alcohol and orange zest. The palate is definitely hot at 56.3%, syrupy, sulphured, and heavily plumed with a hint of orange wedge coated in ground coffee. The finish is smooth, but long and bittersweet.

Undeniably Glen Garioch, but not for me. If you "missed out" on this and are a Glen 'Geery' fanatic, look at the Founder's Reserve instead.
