  1. Noface83 scored this whisky 86 points Specialist

    Nose: wow what distinct and juicy aromas of red apples, slightly grassy, ​​toffee and honey sweetness, minty freshness through the slightly tingling alcohol, orange peel, as in the 1st Chapter a light sourdough note, dried fruit (more sherry stressed), the oak is pepper and again Nutmeg but less strong and more pronounced than its predecessor. This one is more fruity and darker than Chapter 1.
    Taste: again very strong and buttery, but now clearly different (also slightly more alcoholic tingling) than Chapter 1, a lot of honey sweetness and malty sweetness, very dry and with many tannins (leather), the finish is unfortunately only medium with now somehow Red wine fruitiness and dryness.
    The Chapter 1 seemed fresher and more playful, but here again we have a "Landhauswhisky" (but now in a winegrowing area). Dry, woody and sherrybetonter he likes me but even a tad better.

    The whole Renaissance series by Glen Garioch is - in my honest opinion - hugely underrated. All available for under 100 euros, its a must try or must by for all, who love a more than decent Glen Garioch.

    Hmmm, not great.
    I really liked the 21er, I loved the 15 and the "Wine Cask" was great. This one ... is an OK fourth place in my history with the distillery so far.
    • Nose
      Undiluted: At first, of course, a lot of alcohol (slightly prickly), which the nose has to get used to. After evaporating, you get a slightly sugary, sweet, high spiciness. Not fruity for me at all.

      Diluted to around 45%: Still quite massive, the sweetness is completely in the background. Now I get a light dried fruit in the background.
    • Taste
      Spicy (pepper) with very little sweet fruit.
    • Finish
      The spice fades towards the tip of the tongue.
