Whisky Reviews for Glen Garioch 15-year-old

18 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 82.71 points

  1. lincolnimp scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    My previous score was for my last full bottle and I have a had a few 15 year tall bottle, I also really like the old parchment label 10 year.

    In its day a quality affordable Geerie, so much better than today, my previous score was 86 for this bottle, this is a few points higher from this sample.

    Apparently the lavender smell is down to  excessive linalool?

  2. lincolnimp scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    Probably the best 15 year Geerie I have had.
    • Nose
      Ah that 1980`s lavender smell that Geerie is know for, nothing to do with lavender by the way.

      The sherry is also on the strong side, this is very perfumy mixed with barley sugars, fruit jams and fruit gum sweets.
    • Taste
      Lovely mouthfeel, some spices and fruit with peat and then it gets a little dry.

      Nice integration of peat & sherry mixed with dark coloured fruit gums, some woody notes creep in but it all adds to the profile.

      There is also a slight mallow note.
    • Finish
      Good length, 

  3. St. Pauli scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    Quite powerful given the ABV. Mix of ex bourbon and ex sherry. Salty notes, earthy peat (Heather), salted licorice, caramel and dried fruits. Some spices from some European oak to. Everything works quite harmonious. A great sipping whisky.

  4. Calmar scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

      And it turned out well, I confess, I was expecting an empty middle peasant, but here everything starts from the fragrance very, very well, there is a variety and depth (for my age), and saturation with a small fortress, and even a clearly emerging personality - nice and interesting.
    • Nose
        Open, warm, dry boards, malt, apples Granny Smith, mineral tones - crushed stone, salt; a little floral-herbal notes, caramel, lemon.
    • Taste
        Dense, rich, woody-sweet, thick as thickened caramel, a little cardboard, malt, wood dust, lemon, some fruit notes.
    • Finish
        Warm, warm, light shades of mulled wine, tangerine peel, orange peel, oak, butter, grain, light bitterness of bark, lemon, a little creamy tones.

  5. BXpress scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    This is an excellent profile but a little overdilluted. It seems i got lucky with this one, no perfumy notes. Since Glen Garioch ran this label all the way through the mid 2000s this could very well be an early 90s vintage (the end of the perfumy era). Very present distillery character.
    • Nose
      Very nice and harmonic nose. Savoury, beefy, broth. Then a good dose of salt, earth and something green/leafy. Fully regional this one, the peat influence is very highlandish. Some Sherry cask influence too, which adds some caramel aroma and not much more.
    • Taste
      Very savoury again, then the salt takes over. Its slightly thin and and a tiny bit hot though. Faint hints of floral stuff/vegetal stuff followed by some caramel, pepper and overripe apples all that is kinda underlined by a great tobbaco note that seems to be ever present.
    • Finish
      Medium long. Salt, pepper, caramel. Interesting after taste on dry tobacco.

  6. Allandale scored this whisky 84 points Connoisseur

    A medium and rich body.
    • Nose
      Good whiff of earthy peat,oily smoke. Very aromatic.
    • Taste
      Very gradual development from malty,liquorice-like, rooty notes through heathery , flowery, perfumy smokiness. Full of character.
    • Finish
      Very long, spicy  and warming.

  7. uap304 scored this whisky 85 points Expert Junior

    This bottle went by quickly. Interestingly it conjured constant comparison to other malts. It definitely had that sort of superficial and forced presentation like Dalmore, and the sweet, fruity, sherry palate to match. There is a wisp of Lagavulin-esque cigar smoke that really makes the experience, and even a side of lapsang souchong tea perhaps. Maybe some hops? And even the finish was very similar to Rosebank in a dry and effervescent kind of way. Not a standout but very interesting indeed!

    I always find this particular expression perfumy?
