Whisky Reviews for Glen Garioch 1990 MMcK

3 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 88.00 points

  1. Northern&Isles scored this whisky 99 points Expert Senior

    Very fine, delicious, old-fashioned in the best sense, sweet Glen Garioch.
    The oldest in my collection so far.
    Probably the best so far.
    Very balanced and balanced complex.
    Light smoke, not sharp and not acrid. It's soft, round and gentle.
    Very light oak influence with spice and pleasant bitterness, no unpleasant acid.
    Bright yellow fruits and very slightly salty for me. Much malt and barley.
    Long, intense finish full of elegance and complexity.
    Big recommendation.

  3. Achany scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    the vanilla sweetness was the first Impression and after some while this one opens up. baked apples, some cinnamon, lots of spices, some salt as well and ... some peat, just enough to recognize its there. finish is quite right. that is some nice balanced malt from Glen Garioch before it was "remodeled" to taste like Macallan.
