Nose: dark spicy honey on biscuit, malt sugar, raspberries and grapes, vanilla, an earthy and slightly smoky oak note, tobacco can. Intense and old-looking with lots of wood and subtle smoke.
Taste: full and supple with lots of spice and oak. black tea with a spoon of honey, pepper, toffee, garden herbs and a beautiful wood note (cinnamon and chocolate). The finish is dominated by bitter oak (old tea leaves and wet wood) and herbs, but at the end the honey and a dry sweetness accompany the long finish.
Great nose and even better taste / finish. It has depth and shows its age - but you must be able to get rid of oak. These old Glen Gariochs with the subtle smoky notes are really great.
