  4. barryfox915 scored this whisky 70 points Expert Senior

    Colour: Gold
    Nose: Smooth, aromatic, mineral, smoky, juicy, slightly peat and
    austere, with some grassy and honey notes. Close to the Sansibar, but slightly
    more mineral and with less toffee.
    Taste: Aromatic, rather mineral and smoky,
    slightly peaty and austere, with some bitter notes (gentian) and some light
    juicy oaky notes. The finish is medium, rather waxy, aromatic, slightly austere
    and mineral, with a light bitterness, some floral notes and a touch of
    vanilla.
    Impression: A very good, well balance and rather mineral-austere
    type of Glen Garioch..

  5. The Whisky Cyclist scored this whisky 84 points Expert Senior

    nice fresh whisky, but a bit boring
    • Nose
      vanille, glue (Bisonkit) from the bourbon cask, menthol
    • Taste
      menthol, refreshing, but also a earthy note
    • Finish
      like peppermint, bitter note, long lasting

  6. Bishlouk scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

      Pear dry, some spring flowers.
    • Taste
      Well balanced on green fruits and citrus fruits.
    • Finish
      Average finish on green fruits.
