    Serge
    Glengarioch 19 yo 1988/2008 (55.5%, Duncan Taylor, cask #1560) A sister cask, possibly from the same lot. Colour: pale gold. Nose: as often, this one is very similar but the sherry and the fruitiness are less obvious, as if it was a refill cask that had contained its first whisky for a much longer time than cask #1536. A bit more mineral and ashy, as well as more vegetal (raw rhubarb, sorrel). It also seems that there was more peat in this one – or rather than the peatiness is less masked by the wood. What’s sure is that it’s a beautiful nose again. Notes of fresh oranges develop over time . It’s great to be able to check the difference that a more – or less – active cask imparts to the very same distillate. Mouth: this is now the same whisky as the James MacArthur, with maybe just a little more resinous notes and a slightly bigger pepperiness. Does that mean that a more active cask is more noticeable on the nose than on the palate? Finish: same as above. Comment: did I already say ‘pure pleasure’? SGP:544 – 88 points.
