Whisky Reviews for Glen Garioch 1991 Sb

9 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 88.56 points

  1. Noface83 scored this whisky 91 points Specialist

    Wow what a cool drop.
    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.

    A real pleasure, this whisky. In the beginning he makes you fidget a bit, but when he then reveals his individual flavors, one can hardly get out of amazement. wlak 17-1
    • Nose
      Complex nose, closely interwoven flavors. It takes a while for this to be clear. But then first vanilla sugar separates, after some time honey, maybe also sugar beet syrup, marzipan bread. Very supple, very pleasant in the nose.
    • Taste
      Silky and creamy on the tongue, no sharpness, despite over 50%. The various flavors are faster on the tongue than in the nose, but are essentially a mirror image of the same. Again, some ingredients of a cake: vanilla sugar, honey, marzipan. In addition toffee sweets, milk coffee. Over time, spices such as cloves, thyme, basil, oregano and pepper are added. The oak takes its place after a while, but is not too dominant.
    • Finish
      Long, still creamy, fine honey sweetness and a lot of marzipan. If you take a look at the emptied glass, the spices will show themselves again.

    Great nose, great whisky.
    • Nose
      freshly sliced ​​vanilla pod, very creamy, sweet honey, like a honey waffle, vanilla kipper, gradually sweet sweet juicy fruit comes along, has more of syrup, peach, a bit like peach rings, all things that I like very much happy with water: a little spicier, slightly greasy
    • Taste
      creamy, also a lot of vanilla, honey, sweet, peach, the aromas from the nose continue, light acidity, altogether more restrained than in the nose, comes over almost like a drinking strength with water: looks more watery from the mouth, but the taste is more intense, a little bitter, oak comes out, a hint of smoke
    • Finish
      Here again the memory of peach rings, the mouth is slightly covered, a hint of fruit bowl comes to it with water: no big difference

    • Taste
      soft and silky in the onset, great mouthfeel, develops spicy fiery on the tongue and sweet in the cheeks, very distinctive, spicy on the palate with pepper, spicy orange in the cheeks, about Mon Cherie in the throat, good chocolate, cherry, glowing, he still creates cinnamon, camphor and menthol, a real winter dream You can also perceive floral and fruity notes and even something special acidity
    • Finish
      long, Mon Cherie sticks on the palate, a bit damp, chocolate powder, wood, dark fruit, spicy wood with moist sweetness remains something becomes very slightly bitter, Fire - smooth and cool

    [October, 2017]  Part six of my little new tasting project to find out if all Glen Garioch distilled in the early nineties really are above average or if I can find a below average sample.  I bought this bottle for 139 Euro in November, 2016.The colour is amber and the texture shows small sticky tears that transform slowly into a sticky ring at the top of the glass and after a while this builds some fat tears with very, very slow legs (an excellent oiliness that promises a great mouthfeel).  The nose is rich on barley sugars, tea leaves, citric fruits (oranges) and spicy wooden aromas.  All in a nice balance and without any flaw.  The initial mouthfeel is great just as the texture promised:  It immediately coates the whole of the mouth with just a slight peppery feeling and some minor dry moments (metallic) that are a nice contrast to the sweet barley sugars.  The taste is bold with some smokey notes on top of the vanilla and orange driven flavours profile, a great pairing!  Again lots of sugars and spices in an adequate wooden structure - all is nicely chewable and offers more and more flavours the longer you keep it in the mouth (e.g., coffee).  The finish is long and very sticky.  It offers additional cocoa aromas that are delicious.  Some water releases more oily aromas in the nose and turns the mouthfeel even smoother.  The taste and finish loose a little bit of power but gain harmony and additional flavours from the reduction.  Actually a like it that way better (it is an excellent swimmer so playing around with water is highly recommended).

    A great and quite impressive dram with a massive taste that I really like, one to experience how "chewing a malt" releases new impressions.  I strongly suggest to do this for at least 2-3 minutes...

    The nose is difficult and difficult to access. In the mouth but he rips everything out again. Very tasty and complex with nice flavors. Great, great whisky, but you should already like oak
    • Nose
      a fine alcoholic nose on the nose, slightly tingling, then creamy vanilla, some citrus and oiliness, as well as solvents and a little sourness, after a little exercise comes more fruit. Especially canned peach and a touch apricot, in the background and subliminal even a very slight hint of smoke
    • Taste
      Vanilla, cream, very creamy, some malt, but more in the background, then kräutigerige barrel spice and something tingling almost like orange lemonade, difficult to grasp, maybe a little smoke and / or slightly peppery and in between always honey again
    • Finish
      The lemonade feeling remains, as well as the barrel wort with the indefinable herbal mix stays pretty long

  8. Helgo scored this whisky 90 points Connoisseur

    Exciting. He really needs a lot of time. Too deep and versatile, it comes so that I only need a quarter of an hour to sort me. The nose is so complex and different. First, I miss a dominant heath and honey note. Then vigorously follows ginger, cloves, basil, oregano and cardamom spice carrier with a wide range of flavors. What else is there? A little peppermint, roasted aromas and dark chocolate. Some oak out the back. In the taste it brings all the aromas of the nose together and has citrus fruits, a harsh tobacco note in the taste show. Some baked apple and a marginal cinnamon note at the end. The taste is long, pleasantly warming. Very creamy with marzipan notes and some jelly-like on the end. Clearly Ü90 candidate! Thank you very much for the Adventsample Noface!
