Whisky Reviews for Glen Garioch 2008 TCaH

3 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 86.71 points

  1. DNoyze scored this whisky 86 points Member Junior

    A real summer whisky with a distinctive distillery character. Already tropical fruity but not cardboard-sweet but rather tangy tart at the end. Whisky as a soft drink;)
    • Nose
      Sparkling lime, herbal soap (floral + herbal), white pepper, mint
    • Taste
      Lime peel, violet, espresso, mineral, bitter almond
    • Finish
      Like a bite in a grapefruit, it changes from sweet to sour to bitter. The tart floral note stays in your cheek pockets for a long time

  2. Lallinger scored this whisky 87 points Expert Junior

    A nice sour, tangy bottling that shines with its tart citrus aromas and, thanks to its cask strength, also leaves room for experimentation. A nice companion, especially in summer, but also for days when it simply has to be a nice bourbon barrel. The slight sweetness harmonizes well with the rather bitter character of the malt. Generally a good value for money whisky.

  3. Lallinger scored this whisky 87 points Expert Junior

    A really sour, tangy bottling, which impresses with its beautiful citrus aromas and has enough power to allow you to experiment with water. The slight sweetness harmonises perfectly with the barrel aromas and makes the filling a nice companion not only on summer days. Not too complex, but really pleasing, it is a nice dram with a good price-performance ratio.
