The Glen Garioch 12 year old gains its distinctive Highland character from maturation in two wood groups, American Bourbon, and Spanish Sherry casks. Each stage of the marriage adds distinct characteristics to the final single malt. Bourbon to soften the spirit and Sherry to add depth of flavour. The Glen Garioch range is both natural and non chill-filtered.
Nose: The colour of sharp honey, on the nose heathery floral notes are balanced with the richness of poached pears and the sweetness of malted barley.
Palete: Crème brûlée and sweet ripe banana at first, then comes a light oakiness with pear fruitiness, leading to a long smooth, creamy and fragrant finish.
