Glen Garioch 12 year old, made from a blend of two different finishes, ex-bourbon casks and ex-sherry casks, reveals a very rich and fruity character.
- Appearance : rich gold.
- Nose : appealing, a basketful of red and dried fruit. Strawberry, plum and prune. Precise notes of coffee. Vegetal, herbaceous and cut grass. Green almonds. Yoghurt and apricot make a strong reappearance.
- Palate : smooth, Amaretto liqueur. Develops into dried fruit, fresh hazelnut and milky almond. A touch of rancio with walnut undertones.
- Overall : lingers on to dried fruit and malted barley. The dry extract reveals a precise note of cocoa powder. Hits all the right notes.
