  2. checkpointuk scored this whisky 94 points Connoisseur

    Colour:
    Old gold / amber
    Nose:
    Spicier and more invigorating than Cask 624! Fresh flavors of mint and soft lemon rise in the glass, as well as orange marmalade, honey, wax and buttery soft leather, all underlaid with toffee and smoke and in a fantastic combination!
    Taste:
    Full spice, smoke, fruit and just awesome! Everything is in here and in perfect coordination. Fresh notes pulsate in the tongue, accompanied by fruity orange, tobacco, wood, leather and honey. More and more mint and grapefruit and to get drier and smokier.
    Finish:
    Long - dry but still fruity and provided with elegant spice. The wood is outrageously delicious and perfectly integrated. Smoke, orange, honey, toffee and dark fruit juice stick to the tongue.
    Comment:
    Nose and taste in an absolutely gigantic combination. A malt from which you can not get enough!

    SergeGlen Garioch 29 yo 1968 (56.5%, OB for Bill & Maggie Miller, hogshead #13) Colour: amber. Nose: just superb at first nosing, more austere and dry than cask #627 but also more elegant, more complex. Lots of bitter chocolate and coffee plus mint and then we have truckloads of coconuts, almond paste and macaroons. Resembles some of the greatest new style rums (Savanna), with a perfect balance. There’s a little less peat than in cask #627 but more mint and more nice fresh wood. Great. Mouth: thicker, fruitier and more assertive. Lots of apricot jam, ripe mirabelle plums, less tannins and wood. Develops on nougat, Irish coffee, then hints of horseradish and pepper, a little peat… Maybe not overly complex but the balance is perfect. Finish: long, now rather woodier and tannic, maybe the less distinctive part but the whole is another excellent old Glen Garioch. 90 points, well deserved.
