Nose - Warm amber in appearance, sweet vanilla and subtle spice combine with fruitier green apple and grapefruits on the nose. Palete - Butter cream and vanilla pave the way to fruity green apple skin and citrus cleanliness, leading to an elegant and subtle finish.
Ultimate Beverage Challenge 93 points - Buttery aromas of caramels and roasted peaches. Smooth and spicy in the mouth, sweet ripe fruit turns into spice-laden caramel, coffee and tobacco leaf. Rich with smoke throughout, the final effect is leathery and full flavored. (Apr 2014)

One of the oldest operating distilleries in Scotland – and its most easterly – Glen Garioch (pronounced Geery in the ancient Doric dialect still spoken in these parts) has been making its mighty malt in the quaint and historic market town of Oldmeldrum, near Aberdeen in North East Scotland, ever since 1797. Shielded from the world’s prying eyes, deep in the fertile ‘Granary of Aberdeenshire’, and only ever produced in small, precious batches, Glen Garioch is a rare find indeed, but warmly appreciated by those who like a hearty Highland malt, non chill-filtered as nature intended, with a wholesome maltiness, honeyed sweetness and delicious creamy texture to savour.
