    Colour: Gold
    Nose: Round, waxy, smooth, aromatic, floral, on humus, some peat
    smoke, vanilla and some pollen.
    Taste: Very smooth, round, waxy, aromatic,
    with a nice peat smoke, some honey, as well as some faint meaty notes. Well
    balanced and creamy. The finish is medium to long, smooth, oaky, waxy, aromatic,
    creamy, with some peat smoke and a slight fragrance. Diluted, it becomes
    slightly mineral.
    Impression: A deliciously smooth, balance, creamy and
    complex Glen Garioch. An excellent treat fairly priced.

    Glen Garioch 21 yo 1992/2013 (52.8%, Acla da Fans, bourbon hogshead, 132 bottles) Colour: gold. Nose: styles are similar, but this one has more depth and complexity when unreduced, but that may come from the lower strength as well. I find aromas that used to be found in older Glen Gariochs (1965, 1971), with this kind of ashy smoke and this blend of ripe oranges with tobacco and cedar wood. Great nose for sure. With water: it’s one of the rare cases when you find OBE in new whisky. Old tools, metal polish, hay, shoe polish… Mouth (neat): superbly peaty and orangey, with great body and quite some tobacco again. Something rooty/earthy too, and touches of passion fruits. What’s not to like? With water: more of all that. Leafy ashes, I’d say. Finish: long, very ashy, sooty. A lingering high-level OBE, very funny and interesting. Comments: simply a great one that hints at much older vintages. Should be a shared cask according to the outturn, where’s the other half? SGP:453 - 88 points.
