    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.

    Great malt. With was a little better.
    • Nose
      Very clear vanilla, slightly hiding a touch of glue. Then everything disappears and new things come out. Now he gets malty and the alcohol hits the nose.
    • Taste
      Voluminous, then sweet, towards honey and here too the vanilla. Then he is gone again. Let's see what else is possible with water. He is much sweeter, as in the nose in the direction of honey. Then a bit bitter, and some vanilla. But also very straightforward with water and not very complex.
    • Finish
      Relatively long with a mixture of sweet and bitter.

    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.
