Description/ Tasting NotesFull-bodied and intensely sherried with a syrupy texture. Toffee, chocolate and maple syrup on the palate, carrying the tingly warmth of spices, tangy marmalade and dates.
Winery Info/ Brand
Glen Garioch distillery is one of the oldest whisky distilleries in Scotland, dating back to 1797. The distillery, which originally incorporated a brewery and tannery, stands on the very edge of the town Oldmeldrum in Aberdeenshire. The Garioch — pronounced 'Geery' — is a tract of richly fertile land, some 150 square miles (390 km2) in extent. The location is known as ‘the granary of Aberdeenshire’, where barley and crystal springs have been abundant for over a thousand years, so it is not surprising that Glen Garioch Distillery was established as early as 1794 — one of the oldest operating distilleries in Scotland.
