    Tasting Notes by Adelphi;

    1 of only 285 bottles from cask 2689
    The distillery does not stand in a glen, but it is seated among the rolling pastures of ‘The Garioch’ (pronounced ‘Geerie’), some of the best farm-land in Aberdeenshire. This example of its make comes from a refill hogshead, and the whisky’s colour is bright amber. There is some nose prickle, then an aroma which reminded us of ‘pre-mix lemon meringue pie’ – both sweet (icing sugar) and fresh (lemon curd and peel). It has a cleanness, combined with a very slight phenolic component, akin to lint bandages, and when water is added, this emerges as sphagnum moss, and even lint smeared with Savlon cream. Behind this there is both baked pear and tinned pear. The taste is sweetish, clean and fresh, with some lingering acidity and a trace of smoke in the finish.
