  1. StyrianSpirit scored this whisky 90 points Expert Senior

    This third chapter of the Glen Garioch Renaissance is the logical continuation of the previous ones. Now, however, we are heading for "old malt" with even more dark fruit, very beautiful honey and herbal notes and the fine Glen-Garioch-Bitterness. This chapter is closer to the second one than to the first, of course.
    • Nose
      The nose shows the strong Glen-Garioch-flavor in the first appearance: malt, ripe pear, honey, some marjoram, forest soil. Reminds me spontaneously of the 2nd Chapter. The alcohol level is barely noticeable.
    • Taste
      In the mouth comes the third chapter full and strong as a bear. The pear is immediately in the foreground, followed by oak, herbs and the typical "Glen-Garioch-Bitterness". Characteristics: Fruity and spicy.
    • Finish
      The finale is again pear-fruit, primed with beautiful oak bitterness. Clearly a Highlander from Oldmeldrum.

  4. dramspotter scored this whisky 82 points Connoisseur

    Blind mystery tasting. The comments would tend to damn the whisky with faint praise, which is a little unfair. I find it a decent enough dram but nothing very extraordinary.
    • Nose
      some refill sherry with some light fruitiness; almond paste?
    • Taste
      softer than the nose would suggest
    • Finish
      pleasant and nice, with some sherry roundedness

  5. gallfux did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    Somehow he does not pick me up like that. Certainly a well-made whisky. But I have no need to get me a bottle of it.
    • Nose
      Not too cute. Malt and cereal notes. Apple compote with some cinnamon. Williams Christ pear brandy. Vanilla. "Sharp" wood notes. Pepper. Relatively spicy nose.
    • Taste
      Initially wild honey. Then cereal with apple and dried apricots. Then some herbs. Now the oak comes clearly back into play. And brings a lot of spice.
    • Finish
      It gets drier and slightly bitter. Nuts. Green tea.

    • Nose
      87 87
      Sherry, strong fruit and a nice oak note. Some citrus and fresh herbs
    • Taste
      89 89
      Sherry, spicy and creamy. Start with some citrus and vanilla, later the sherry gets more and the beautiful oak comes through. A touch of cinnamon and dark fruits. From time to time a touch of herbs and a touch of leather
    • Finish
      90 90
      Oak, cinnamon, sherry, dark chocolate, a touch of coffee, then a bit of nut which lasts a long time. I love it.

      86 86
      honey, citrus, ripe pears, white pepper, saccharine sweetness, rich blossom, milk chocolate, caramel, butterschotch, green apple, malty tones
      soft whisky that does not dominate alcohol
    • Taste
      88 88
      little spicy, dark chocolate, cinnamon, honey on buttered toast, toffee, citrus, orange marmalade
    • Finish
      85 85
      medium, remains very sweet and nicely balanced
      dark chocolate

  8. pianoman scored this whisky 83 points Connoisseur

    • Nose
      Fresh, slightly sour. Bright grapes, limes, brown sugar. Sand, slightly mineral, Campari soda. Dry summer meadow.
    • Taste
      Light honey, baked banana, some pepper. Lemon sorbet. Then some apricot and almonds. Dry with a slight metallic sharpness.
