Tasting Notes

Glen Garioch 21 Year Old Tasting Notes (Mark from Malt)

Colour: pale gold.

On the nose: a tight integration of citrus notes, malted barley and could that be peat? (Just a waft, if so.) Buttermilk and lime marmalade. Traces of vanilla custard, pineapple, green apples. Herbal: sage or bay leaves, with dried tea. Ground almonds. Lemonade.

In the mouth: grapefruit juice providing a sour note, with again the malted barley quality and Assam tea. Traces of sandalwood and an ever-so-slight aniseed quality. Flashes of pineapple. Vanilla does arrive, but doesn’t dominate. Quite nutty in places, with almonds, walnuts, and finally a pleasing grassiness. Green tea and honey on the finish.
