FACTS

NOSE

Little vanilla, plum spirit, warm oak, quite some eucalyptus and mint and just whiffs of geranium on top of the whole. Pleasant ones! With water: Tea, liquorice, grass and quite some fresh almonds. More mint as well.

PALATE

Cranberry sweets and orange drops, it is got something of the late 1980’s Bowmores in a certain way, whilst the Lonach from the same vintage did not display that very peculiar profile. With water: just more of the same.

FINISH

Long finish , on spices, mint and violet sweets.

OVERALL

A very nice and sweet Glen Garioch.
