    Serge
    Glen Garioch 1990/2007 (57.1%, Mackillop's Choice, cask #10291) Colour: gold. Nose: this is more fragrant than the Adelphi, with more fruits (added notes of peaches) and maybe a bigger farminess and less sooty/oily notes. More demonstrative… for a while, as it gets then much smokier and drier while the Adelphi got fruitier and coconutty. Funny to-ings and fro-ings! With water: exactly the same whisky as the Adelphi now. Water ended these two babies’ disagreement! Mouth (neat): big, grassier, greener and flintier than the Adelphi right from the start. Less sweet oak despite a darker colour? ‘Smoked green pears’, lemons, light caramel. With water: once again, the two 1990s converge once water has been added. Maybe a little more salt. Finish: long, frankly salty now. Marzipan. Comments: same as above, and same rating. SGP:442 – 86 points.
