Whisky Reviews for Glen Garioch 12-year-old

3 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 82.75 points

  1. SAND scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    NOSE: Fruity and malty; sweet, malt, grain and butter, butter toffee, sweet cream, treacle, buttered toast, toasted wood, baked bananas, dried mango and papaya, dried apple with sprinkles of cinnamon. Water turns the nose (even) more bourbonny. (90p)
    TASTE: The arrival is sweet, malty and slightly woody. The mid palate is less sweet and moderately spicy with cinnamon, dried ginger and some black and white pepper. Medium rich mouthfeel and viscosity. Water makes it a little sweeter on the palate. (87p)
    FINISH: The exit and aftertaste is dry and mildly spicy. (85p)
    OVERALL: This whisky was opened over a year ago. During oxidation it has lost some of its initial sweetness on the palate. Total score 87 points (I think I would have scored it 88 or 89 a year ago).

  2. whiskyandbeer scored this whisky 78 points Member Junior

    Nose: Nice Vanilla and Cinnamon, tiny smoke beautiful
    Taste: Sweet sadly not as complex as the smell would suggest. Too strong
    Finish: Again not complex very strong more like an irish whisky. Overall: Personally I miss peat and smoke. Nose beautiful but sadly not taste.

    Good value for the money. Perfekt dram for the Winter.
