    What a nice Glen Garioch! I thoroughly enjoyed this one. Around 60 EUR
    if you know where to look.
    • Nose
      The nose is very feisty, almost piquant. I get a fair amount of nuts, a
      wonderful smokiness and a truckload of both vanilla and cake, whipped cream on
      top. A fruit cake with apples and peaches. Marzipan and icing sugar. Coconut.
      Something sourish like gooseberries. It also has a little dirty edge, but it
      works fine.
    • Taste
      It is oily, almost creamy, on the palate. Heavily peppered. All kinds of
      sweet fruit, but also agrums emerge. Quite a lot, actually. Something like
      tonic. Citric acid is the key word. Wonderfully spicy and warming. That is the

    Typically bourbon in the flavor of the Molot with an unexpected fountain of tropical fruits in taste, is quite saturated and deep for its age.
    • Nose
      Fresh, wet, malt, grain, raw oak barrel, lacquer notes, carpenter's workshop, wood shavings, window putty, stone dust.
    • Taste
      Sweet-oak, spicy wave, oranges, kumquats, grapes, exotic fruits, mango, pineapple, again oak bitterness framed with spices and ginger, cream, dried apricots, toffee.
    • Finish
      Spicy oak against the background of extinct exotic fruits, lemonade, orange peel, mint, light bitterness of the young bark.
