Aroma: open, bright, the first wave of minerals, salt, sea water, menthol, somehow even unusual. Then caramelized roasted malt, dark rusks, kvass, confectionery sweetness - something like a chocolate cake, honey comb, wax. Fruit theme in the form of sweet dried white grapes, peach, nectarine. In the background there is a burnt board, a little haze. After standing in a glass for 20-30 minutes, the oak becomes larger.
Taste: chocolate-pepper, honey comb, zest, orange liqueur, ginger, burnt crust of black bread, malt-sweet, cola, black sweet coffee, wood tannins, charred piece of wood, slightly mineral.
Finish: longer than average, slowly fading, ginger, slightly black pepper, burnt caramel, coffee, chocolate and citrus, dark rusks.
Bottom line: a great mouthpiece from Glen Geary! Absolutely in the style of their very good 12-year-olds, but brighter, more cheerful, there are still many interesting nuances, and all that was twisted to the maximum in 12! A good selection of barrels of sherry / bourbon, nothing sticks out, sherry seems to be quite a hint and well manifested are the malt-caramel features of Giri.
