Color
Pale gold
Nose

Light, clean and fresh citrus, some really fresh grain and vanilla. Pear sorbet, green pear, honey and almonds. 

Taste

Sweet and sour arrival with fruit and pear sorbet. It develops into more malty characters with oily texture. It becomes sweeter with icing sugar and sweet licorice but impressively counter balanced with bitter lemon. 

Finish

Again spicy with white pepper, malt sugar, gentle vanilla and breakfast cereal.

Comments

Had a blind sample of it, really liked it a lot. Thanks to Frida Birkehede for the sample.

Trotz CS ein guter Glen Garioch aus dem Ex-Bourbon-Fass ohne dabei besonders sprittig zu wirken. Das Vorgängerbatch hat mir ein wenig besser gefallen. Der Abgang könnte noch ein wenig länger sein. Ansonsten machen die bei Glen Garioch viel richtig!

Nose: Oak, lots of. Vanilla, slightly burnt white cake, bananas.
Body: Tastes a bit like an angel cake, some sourness but quickly goes into intense, but pleasant bitterness. Bananas. Lots of oak spices as you would expect from a 16YO whisky aged in 1st fill bourbon casks.
Finish: Sharp tanins stay on your tongue, prickling.

Nice to see such an old whisky, cask strength, under 100$ (at least here). Glengarioch is a bit undervalued IMO, This one is not their best, but I think this bottle will gain value with collectors as NAS whiskies take over the market.

Colour: Gold
Nose: Light, clean, malty, floral, fresh to very fresh, with some fruits from the orchards.
Taste: Clean to very clean, fresh, floral, fragrant, on vanilla, some fresh almonds, honey and heather. The finish is medium, clean, floral, on vanilla, fresh almonds, heather honey, some frangipane, and sweet barley. Diluted, on strong notes of sweet barley.
Impression: A very clean and fresh Glen Garioch, on sweet barley and tasting rather young. A rather sharp contrast to the Glen Garioch 1995. For sale in travel retail and at the distillery.

バニラや白桃を思わせるオーク香、土っぽさと、少しムワッとする動物性の脂に梅のような酸味を伴う独特のアロマ。 時間と共に徐々にクリーミーな甘さもある。フィニッシュはピーティーで僅かにスパイシー。

近年系の味ではあるが、独特の個性が強みとなって、さらに10年、20年の熟成を経てもなお輝くことを予感させる。

Tasting Notes by Glen Garioch;

Juicy and mouth-watering, with a creamy mouth-coating texture. Spiced pear crumble, ripe banana and toffee are followed by honeydew melon, ground nutmeg and allspice.

After two years’ silence, the distillery gates were flung open and production recommenced in 1997. Now unsmoked, our Vintage 1997 has been matured in a combination of first and second fill bourbon barrels.
