Tasting Notes

Glen Garioch Single Cask 3728 Tasting Notes

Appearance: Russet.

Nose: Classic dried fruits, but with darker fruits on top: elderberry, blackberry, and redcurrant tartness. Curiously not overly sweet, but with a touch of balsamic vinegar or soy sauce tartness once the fruit fades to bring a nice balance.

Palate: Thinly textured, clean expression that follows the nose. Plenty of raisins, but leans towards a very slight umami-ness with red tomatoes at first. Time in the glass tames the tannic bitterness to let the rich fruit shine. Elderberry leads.

Finish: Nicely cloying for a light texture, with a little oak showing over the tartness.
