  1. whiskycuse did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    This malt has captivated me with its stunning aroma. In terms of taste, it cannot fit in optimally, since it is a little too oak-heavy for me and therefore somewhat out of balance. Still a fascinating drop!

    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!

    Glen Garioch 32 yo 1967/1999 (56.1%, The Bottlers, cask #664) We already tried this but never wrote any proper tasting notes. Colour: gold. Nose: more closed, more austere and even more waxy/mineral than all the other ones. Some peat but not too much. Quite some grapefruit as well, but also some slightly disturbing notes of ‘chemical’ orange juice (Fanta). Growing fizziness. Moss and fern. With water: it’s the herbal notes that stand out now, together with even more resin, fern, moss, pine needles etc. The ‘fizziness’ disappeared. Mouth (neat): punchy, compact, bittersweet and gingery. Hints of icing sugar on peppered bitter orange marmalade (well.) Grows more resinous and herbal after a while, as well as hugely spicy (pepper ahead). Quite some ginger as well, and more peat than on the nose. It hasn’t got its bros’ complexity, far from that, but it’s still very, very good whisky. With water: oh, now it’s the peat that grew bolder, together with the pepper and other spices. Improves! Finish: rather long, maybe just a tad bitterer. Comments: very good, even if not quite in the same league as the OB’s and the Samaroli. An excellent example of a heavily peated Glen Garioch in any case. Almost made it to 90 in my book. SGP:265 - 89 points.
