  1. schero scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    A beautiful bourbon barrel, which was certainly still quite new. That could almost have been Virgin Oak.
    • Nose
      Very fresh, coconut, the alcohol is noticeable, citrus notes, light grapes, white wine, oak spice,
    • Taste
      Creamy with a light roast, again the grapes, vanilla and caramel, then the coconut, pure coconut milk is reformed to the end
    • Finish
      A very nice finish, a lot of spice with only a little bitterness, warming, the coconut notes are always on top

    Glen Garioch 20 yo 1993/2014 (55.1%, Single Cask Collection, bourbon hogshead, cask #808, 226 bottles) Colour: straw. Nose: it’s a raw, citric one, one that takes no prisoners as they say. Cherries and grass smoke, strong green tea, orange zests and juice. Whiffs of nail polish as well. Again, its raw spirit. With water: two whiskies in one. This baby loves water, it becomes fresher, smoother and fruitier. More complex as well, with touches of patchouli and eucalyptus. A wee coastal side, maybe (empty seashells). Mouth (neat): once again, it’s a very strong baby when neat, quite aggressive, spirity, rather acrid, with a varnishy fruitiness that would involve greenish oranges and many limes. Really punchy when undiluted. With water: and yet again, it becomes all smoothness and fruitiness. Melons, peaches, tangerines. Finish: long, very fruity when reduced. Some barley sugar and black tea. Comments: very excellent, but needs water. Or you like rough whiskies… SGP:651 - 86 points.

    A nice mix of herbal and fruit notes - well balanced and a bit on the lighter side.
