Glen Garioch 12 Year Old Reviews

hard to beat in this price range

Stunning dram . I get a lovely slightly sweet , malty barley sugar flavour . Full bodied , smooth as silk and burstng with flavour. A great after dinner malt .Really bemefits from being bottled at 48% with no colouring or chill filtering .

top tier whisky

This is a truly phenomenal whisky that is underappreciated. A truly great bang for your buck and more complex and unique than most whiskies on the market.

Nose: apples, spices, almost a warm apple pie or gingerbread, vanilla with a little oak in the background

Palate: Extremely smooth and creamy, chocolate, a little woody,

Finish: long, smooth, fruit and honey with some spiced oak

This whisky in some ways is a hit or miss. Someone has to really appreciate it as Glen Garioch has a flavor profile like no other distillery. Would absolutely recommend to whisky lovers looking to expand their profile as well as seasoned veterans.

Great taste, great value

This has been a fantastic find! Great quality, well balanced flavors, fruity and sweet, almost like a Gewurtz on the nose, and fruity between sips. Fantastic value, as the price here puts in competition with higher end local whiskeys. If you like the fruitiness, make the effort to track down the Canadian Lohin McKinnon, which kicks up this aspect to 11.

Can, t forget this malt.

Superior malt. Lots of heat, sweetness, tast and muscles. Easy to recognize. Value for money!

Please keep this one a secret

I discovered this beauty about 3 years ago and it’s still as amazing as it was then. It takes about. 1/3 of the bottle down and letting it sit at that level for a month or two to let the real surprises come out, and a complexity that just keeps on giving. Sweet, oaky, and a little bit of créme brulee on the nose and finish. A step below cloyingly sweet I can sip this with a dash of water alone or as a precursor to some peated Islay’s on a flight night. Slainthé!

OK. Jammy fruits, high alcohol.

I'm new to whisky, but happy with this bottle.

The 48% makes it a bit harsh, but its smooth otherwise. Smells of jammy fruits and a touch of caramel. I usually drink scotch straight, but I found this one was improved by a few drops of water. Not the best value at it's price of ~$70 CAD though.

I'm impressed

Nose with dark berries, mint and a heavenly sherry fog, but it's also earthiness there. The taste is a full delivery of a taste wave of a kind of metallic caramel and toasted oak, and i love oakiness. Dried fruit, hint of plums, sherry, spice. Quite long and sweet finish with a salty feeling on the lips. 48% is a respectable level, but you can drink it neat or with a little spoon of water.

Overall a sweet and well balanced whisky, and it has to be one of the very best 12 year old whiskies.

Should be better known

I've had this whisky several times and it has never been a disappointment. It's a 12 year old, non-chillfiltered @ 48% - which is great - but it does have colouring added - which is not quite so good - but don't let that stop you trying this great whisky. Frankly, it should be better known and more popular but I suppose it does come from a Highland distillery that's a bit of the beaten whisky track. Even at 48%, it's smooth enough to drink without water but a drop does open it up a bit and lets the sweetness come through a bit more, combining well with the toasty oak and dried fruit flavours, with a finish that is long and satisfying.

Liquor-infused fruit, malt, oak cask!

Bought a 1-liter bottle of this and am glad I did!
On the nose was sherry and Japanese ume-shu (plum liquor), malt and very subtle notes of toffee, vanilla and rum.
On the palate was bourbon cask, liquor-infused fruit and toffee. I also detected, of all things, a taste like steamed spinach!
The finish was long, and you can taste the cask.
After a few drops of water, more maltiness, and the fruit becomes more pronounced. Let it sit for a few minutes and the aromas really come out.
Healthy 48% ABV, too.
