Colour: Old gold
Nose: Waxy, mineral, clean peat smoke and malt, fruity
(orange and tangerine), floral (heather) and on honey. Diluted, it becomes
fruitier on citrus fruits.
Taste: Peaty, mineral, smoky, slightly salty, on
juicy malt, orange, orange skin, tangerine, toffee and forest honey. The finish
is long to very long, clean, peaty, mineral, juicy, waxy, on orange, bitter
lemon and some light toffee notes.
General Impression: The Glen Garioch
distilled before the end of the 1970s were more peated than the current version.
This is one is quite heavily peated, with waxy and fruity notes, reminding one
of some old Clynelishes. I really enjoyed this one!
