Ever wondered what a Glen Garioch single malt Scotch whisky would taste like, if it was matured completely in wine casks, but never had the chance? Well now you can, with the first ever fully-wine-cask-matured whisky from the distillery in Aberdeenshire. This limited edition whisky was distilled in 1998 and filled into French Bordeaux wine casks, where it matured for 15 years, until it was bottled in 2014.
Nose: Opens with juicy red fruits. Both milk and dark chocolate chunks. Sweet oak. Raisins and prunes.
Palate: A malty core with gingerbread and cinnamon. More jammy fruits and milk chocolate. Orange zest pops up every once in a while.
Finish: A sweet, long finish of malty, plummy goodness.
Overall: An elegant, intriguing expression from Glen Garioch.

This wine cask from Glen Garioch is really a solid whisky. I was a bit skeptical about the wine cask given all the negative reviews about such products. I really enjoyed it and would like to compare it with the Edradour Super Tuscan I have at home but is unopened. I really liked the GG's sweetness and its balance.

It's not bad and actually the best red wine cast matured whisky I tasted so far. But it's certainly not worth it's price (as stated on this site)
