Whisky Reviews for Glen Garioch 1984 SV

3 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 90.70 points

  1. Dottore scored this whisky 92 points Expert Senior

    I enjoyed this almost 35-year-old Bourbon barrel ripening very well. A really extraordinary flavor profile concentrates in only 44% cask strength but still incredibly voluminous and aromatic. A scent of violets, orchids and greenhouse. With malt, honey and vanilla. Subtle smoke in the background. Wonderfully harmonious. In the mouth also very floral notes, a little walnut and oak but surprisingly little bitterness for the 34 years. And yet you notice the age at every point. The finish is long, beautifully creamy, sweet and floral. Great malt

    Two worlds of flavors collide: earthy and floral violet and lavender notes and sweet marmalade casserole. A whisky that could split the minds. Like a walk through the cemetery after a breakfast of marmalade tulls.

      Fresh in the glass still very restrained. After a few minutes of oxygen and some hand warmth, jam notes of Qitte and grapefruit develop, intense sweetness and yet slightly sour. If you let it breathe for a little longer, earthy violet and lavender notes crawl out of the glass, paired with a very delicate liquorice patille in the background. Totally balanced interplay of flavors. Fantastic.

      For 34 years in the barrel, the oak influence is virtually unnoticeable. A tiny bit of bitterness on the tongue before the sweetness of the jam regains the upper hand. Cooked fruit pepaart with a slight hint of licorice that plays around with earthy and floral notes.

      Medium-length finish that leaves the sweetness, but the violet and lavender notes are completely gone.
