Colour: Gold
Nose: Very light, malty, fresh, with a thin thread of peat smoke, on freshly crushed barley and some pear drops. Diluted, it becomes more on freshly crushed barley.
Taste: Fresh, light, malty, slightly waxy and spicy, with some vanilla, ginger, some tangerine and light floral notes, on top of a nice light peat smoke. The finish is medium to long, slightly smoky and peaty, with some fruits of the orchards and almonds, as well as some light fragrant floral notes.
Impression: I do not know if the type of casks used for this batch is the same as the previous vintages, but the flavour profile is rather different, being lighter and, to my opinion, of better quality, more subtle and less waxy. Very enjoyable and fairly price. If you wish to taste a Glen Garioch, this might be a very nice introduction.

Nose

Sehr deutliche Vanille, etwas versteckt ein Hauch von Klebstoff. Dann verschwindet alles und es kommen neue Dinge hervor. Jetzt wird er malzig und der Alkohol haut in die Nase.

Taste

Voluminös, dann süß, in Richtung Honig und auch hier die Vanille. Dann ist er auch schon wieder weg. Mal gucken, was mit Wasser noch machbar ist. Er wird deutlich süßer, wie in der Nase in Richtung Honig. Dann etwas bitter, und einiges an Vanille. Aber auch mit Wasser sehr gradlinig und wenig komplex.

Finish

Relativ lang mit einer Mischung aus süßem und bitteren.

Comments

Toller Malt. Mit war etwas besser.

Tasting Notes by Glen Garioch;

Warm and spicy on the palate, with tastes of pancakes filled with layers of baked banana and toffee sauce, mocha chocolate and warm golden syrup.

Marking a milestone in Glen Garioch’s recent history, our Vintage 1995 was the last to smoke its barley with peat, before being left to mature in the finest first fill bourbon barrels.

Give this whisky time to open up, you'll be rewarded. Because at first it's way too sharp. There's a lovely malt aroma surrounded by tropical fruit, a lot of orange and a bit of chocolate. It also has a soapy quality, which strangely enough is actually pleasant.

Taste

Very syrupy, almost waxy. A warm mouthfeel and plenty of spices like mint and aniseed. The bourbon casks have been very active. A sweet taste to go with the orange that was already very prominent in the nose.

Finish
Bitter and dry, with mandarin. And if you wait long enough, a very faint cherry note starts to develop.

Comments

I tasted this blind and compared it to an Imperial, but many people were thinking of Littlemill. That might give you some indication as to what this should taste like. This is a limited release of 6.000 bottles, so there won't be many of them left. But if you do stumble upon one, don't hesitate. It should cost around 70 euros, which is really good value for money.
