    Fruity HIghlander

    Bananas and dried fruit on the nose. Needs water to open up. Rich mouth feel, a bit oily. Some oaky spice on delivery. Clean finish.

    Needs water, and I like mine neat.

    This little dram took a lot of patience to dissect. It definitely needs water to bring out all of the qualities stored inside the 48% strength. I noticed no one has presented tasting notes, so for what it's worth, here is what I found.

    Neat - Nose: difficult to find anything at first, but after a few minutes there's vanilla butter cream, almond, amaretto, cake icing, raisins and very ripe pear. Palate: extremely smooth and creamy, but un-discernible and very one-noted. Finish: quick, hot, sharp, with some spiced oak, but quite numbing from the 48% strength.

    With water - Nose: butterscotch, cocoa powder, damp leather, golden raisins, gingerbread, with honey and delicate florals lingering faintly in the background. Palate: lightly sulphured, chocolaty and oaked. Finish: peppered woodiness becomes longer and slightly honeyed, with a nip of dryness and quick whiff of smoke at the very, very end.

    If you love this, great! But the sulphured, dry peppery notes were a bit much for me in this one.

    Well-priced high quality Scotch. I'm not sure that this beats out comparable 10-12 year old offerings from the likes of Glenmorangie and others, but it's a little like the Volvo to their VW, if you get me.

    What a find!

    Succulent impulse purchase discovery. I'm not a fan of the heavy, smokey, peaty malts so this was a delicious find. Unfortunately it didn't last long enough to measure the effect of opening and leaving it to stand.

    Sorry, not convinced.

    Bought as a present for me but have to say there are several I'd put before this. If it helps I love Laphroig.

    A Surprising Highland whisky

    Very smooth, honeylike, definitely not typical for a Highland Whisky. Yet, it has tons of character and it warms like a good scotch whisky should. Gets better after the bottle's been opened for a couple of days. Yes, this is a treat.

    Sorry forgot to mark it - a resounding 10 stars - brilliant

    High Quality and lovely rich flavours

    This is an absolute cracker of a malt. The high 48% ABV locks in some fabulous rich flavours and tannins. Matured in quality Bourbon and Sherry casks it ticks all the boxes for me. Much better than the NAS Founders Reserve and well worth the small premium. My favorite single malt for the money.

    My best retirement gift

    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.

    Purely angelic-like on the tongue

    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.
