  1. Glenjasper scored this whisky 84 points Connoisseur

    Pooh! So what is that? Glen Garioch is written on the bottle. But what comes out of the bottle is something else.

    Ok, maybe not my day. So I took another dram the next day. but nothing has changed.

    I'm not sure what to think of this whisky. Of all EVWC whiskys, one of the worse for me.

      At first, a clear alcohol note appears, but it disappears quickly. After about a minute in the glass, smoky, peaty aromas with light hay become noticeable. That doesn't really fit into a Glen Garioch.

      Then musty, almost musty aromas emerge. A combination of petting zoo, dry animal feed and poorly ventilated circus tent paired with a slight spiciness come through.

      What is that now again? A sharpness immediately spreads on the palate, not from the alcohol, but from chilli pods with lots of Scoville and Cheyenne pepper.
      The sharpness is superimposed on everything.

      The spiciness remains dominant for a while, then a note of creme brulee and shortbread emerges from behind the chili, which gives hope for more. The fruit flavors typical of Glen Garioch try to fight against the sharpness. In vain.

  5. Mane140486 scored this whisky 87 points Expert Junior

    Given that the dram I tasted came from a freshly opened bottle: The nose is very clean, fresh, almost sharp, herbaceous, with a little oxidation hints of malt biscuit (Plasmon to be exact) and vanilla arrive. In the mouth it is corresponding with an addition of dried fruit (in particular hazelnut) and milk chocolate. Medium-long finish.
