    With Glen Garioch I had so far little or little points of contact and can not say anything about the Brennereicharakter or style. However, what strikes me extremely in this bottling is very strange herbal and spicy notes in connection with the musty and decayed earth tones. This filling is extremely changeable and unstable, the flavors change every second. What should I think about this? This Glen Garioch is very special for me with lots of light and shadow! Not bad, but nothing special. I will treat myself to the sampler test in the next few days, for today I award 87 points.

    • Nose
      Bright copper is dull in the Premium Snifter. From the streaks adhering to the glass wall, a multitude of small drops are released and remain for a perceived eternity adhere. Nutty flavors appear creamy, while dark apricots and tangerines join sun-drenched raisins, while caramel and old toffee create a sweetish touch. Freshly sawn wood shavings and an intense alcohol content provide for tart elements, the nose is surprisingly minimal salty and musty mossy. Loamy soil and wet soil, decayed wood and an emerging herbal note put the nose in a different light after a few minutes. From the first fruity impression is almost not left over, it now dominate dark earth tones, wet clay soil and decayed wood which is somehow interesting ...
    • Taste
      Mild, with a strange herbal and spicy note, the first sip flows through the mouth, hints of caramelized sugar and wonderfully dried fruit flavors caress the palate before another strange aroma composition is put together. Slightly bitter bitter tartness on the tongue, fermented fruit aromas end in decayed brushwood and foliage, earthy forest soil mixes with hazelnuts and tart herbs. A touch of thyme and rosemary follow, as well as a slight hint of smoke paired with raisins, old apricots and abrasion of grapefruit peels.
    • Finish
      Herb and sometimes bitter stick slightly smoky wood tones on the palate, the musty and decayed soil does not let up, as well as the "strange" herbal and spicy notes.

    Mental Image: Murad IV’s Clandestine Coffeehouse

    Okay, so good old Sultan Murad IV was hardly running a hookah lounge, much less a coffeehouse. He famously banned them— they seemed the sort of place that bored seditious men might assemble, so this was more the image of a “prohibition” coffeehouse under his reign. In this place, sweet rose water and pomegranate liquors were available with a wink and a nudge or used to flavor pistachio pastries enjoyed between chess games under a sweet floral blanket of smoke.

    This Glen Garioch was delicious. While the cask was given as “hogshead,” it was hard to imagine that all of the dried fruits came from anything other than a refill sherry cask. There was a beautiful balance between a reserved sweetness, mustiness, and sour/tart fruit.
    • Nose
      Fruit, chocolate, musty dunnage warehouse. Crates of fruit resting in a musty dunnage warehouse; mangos, cherries, apple bananas, and starfruit. Thicker, sweeter notes slowly emerged with Karo syrup, kirsch, and black forest cake. At turns, there were subtle hints of nutty cashews and roasted sesame.
    • Taste
      Medium-bodied and very oily with a sweet and sour profile of dried fruit, nuts, and tobacco. Musty dried fruits with sweet, salty, and sour-tart notes— preserved figs, green mango, and pomegranate seeds. The mild nuttiness of roasted sesame and pistachio pastries sweetened with rose water—musty sweet notes of a hookah bar near the end.
    • Finish
      Lingering pomegranate and fruity floral notes.

    I love it, I can deal with it very well and you have to deal with this malt!
    He does not need water
    this is definitely a breaker
    • Nose
      Earth, slightly chemically, nutty note, (dark) fruity note, slightly musty, custard as freshly cooked as it used to be, some smoke, dirty, chemical, ripe fruit, browned apple is longer, musty-moldy, later arrived Vanilla and sweet and unappealing banana
      with water: the musty and the sulfur become stronger and the vanilla note increases
    • Taste
      oily and powerful on the palate
      sulfurous so direction Steichholz, tobacco (class) becomes stronger, oak, minimal smoke, sherry, raisins, later dark caramel and Eichewürze
      with water: softer, slightly vanilla, apple is delicious, the caramel is better
    • Finish
      long
      Oak, very spicy, again the match, slightly musty
      with water: bitter, more oak

    With water:-

     The sulphur is more pronounced but as this is not a heavily sherried bottle I think its still ok?

     Its now all about bitter fruit skins and rather cloying.

    Finish is still medium length.Not a good one but drinkable
    • Nose
      There is a little stewed fruit and notes of ham and cheese toastie but I detect very little else.
    • Taste
      Yes Bxpress is right there is some sulphur in there mixed with orange and plum skin.

      Not as explosive as I thought it would be at 60%.

       There is ginger ale and something very woody and prickly on the palate.Difficult to judge this one
    • Finish
      Reasonable length with some spices

    sample.

    No points. Utterly disgusting and a waste of time.
    • Nose
      Cheese, strong olive oil, acetone, but most of all...yes sulphur in the form of gun powder. I don't even want to continue.
    • Taste
      So much gun powder in the arrival i don't even want to continue because i planned to drink other whiskies tonight.
    • Finish
      Not worth the bother.

    Ne. Well, I'm a big fan of Glen Garioch, but that was just little to nothing at all. Since it was my first Blackadder, of course, the prejudice immediately arises on it having to do with the remains in the bottles, even if it is not true. No one needs, except one really stands on something.
    • Nose
      Potting soil, compost, cemetery, mature oak, cherry pits, orange peel somewhere behind it.
    • Taste
      Moss, oak cabinet, rosemary, pepper, nutmeg, cardamom, oregano, again pure oak pampering with piles in between, quite spicy, unpleasant in the mouth altogether, not alcoholic, but just bitter and as if you had fallen while jogging in the forest floor with the face ahead
    • Finish
      Bitter-kräutrig, oak, pepper and nutmeg

    Interesting in these bottlings are the residues from the barrel which is clearly recognizable in the bottle (trademark of Blackadder).

    A strange and unexpected concoction. Its quite savory and rough yet sweet and mouth filling. This is not what I expected from an older Glen Garioch. There is nothing elegant about this whisky but it’s a rather masculine and rough whisky. I’m not entirely sure if I like for dislike this whisky, it just very different let’s keep it at that
    • Nose
      A savory, slightly sour and rough whisky with aromas of linoleum, old dutch cheese, damp forest floor, smoked ham, metallic tones (copper), berries (mostly blackberries), overripe (maybe even rotten) apple, unripe pear, dried flowers, vanilla, balsamico bianco, custard pudding, red wine vinegar, bouquet garni and dry oak.
    • Taste
      A powerful, rough, bitter and mouth filling whisky with aromas of tannins, iron, copper, pepper, ginger, chili pepper, cinnamon, balsamic, backed apple, dark honey, charcoal, charred oak, hint of varnish, licorice root, cedar wood, wood shavings, candied ginger, jam, berries, vanilla, hint of cocoa powder and bitter oak.
    • Finish
      A long, warm and dry finish with aromas of tannins, chili peppers, ginger, black pepper, licorice root, honey, backed pears, a hint of sulfur and bitter oak.
