  1. AngeloMerten scored this whisky 85 points Expert Senior

    In the first nose it reminds me of a rum from the Caribbean. The Glen Garioch 15 is a perfect malt and has a good PLV. (65 euros)
    • Nose
      87 87
      A lot of sherry with a nice sweetness.
      The alcohol tingles slightly in the nose.
      Raisins, caramel, honey and some cake batter in rum round off the malt beautifully. In the background I find a slight nuttiness that goes in the direction of hazelnut, with a hint of cinnamon. He screams for the first sip.
    • Taste
      85 85
      Nice oily mouthfeel.
      Alcohol is well integrated.
      It fills the mouth area sweetly and pleasantly.
      Toffee, orange, raisins and a dash of lime.
      A little one-dimensional, but still delicious.
    • Finish
      84 84
      Medium length finish.
      The 15 years are noticeable with roasted aromas, a slight bitterness (not dry) spreads.
      Appeal of dark chocolate.

    Trial Olympics 2019 # 3
    • Nose
      Berries, dark bitter chocolate, butter scotch, touch of sulphur and orange peel. Glendronach style.
    • Taste
      Berries, winey, marmelade and sigar boxes.
    • Finish
      Not that long as I hoped for with caramel, forest fruits and cranberries.

    This falls squarely in the category of 'Wouldn't recommend this, but still drinkable'. The sulphur is too present for me, distracting from what otherwise would likely be a good whisky.
    • Nose
      Intense with an undeniable fair amount of sulphur. Hints of forest fruits, cassis and bitter chocolate. Whiffs of pepper and nutmeg, as well as a hint of soy sauce.
    • Taste
      More sulphur, what a shame. Pretty dry and somewhat sour with spicy notes of nutmeg and black pepper. A touch of tobacco laves, as well as marmelade.
    • Finish
      Medium in length. More of the same.

    A 'jumpy' Edradour style sherry profile.
    • Nose

      Cranberry, rubber balloons, caramel, nutmeg, cinnamon, sauerkraut and cayenne pepper. A little banana in the back.
    • Taste
