Tasting note: With origins dating back to 1785, Glen Garioch lays claim to being one of Scotland's oldest distilleries. Producing a medium bodied spirit with a balance of honey, wax and fruit, the malt here is typically unpeated, although small batches of smoked barley have once again been run. Fully matured in a single Bourbon cask, this pale straw gold expression presents grassy, hay bail-like aromas followed by green pear and a delicate honey sweetness. Crisp and spritely, the palate is medium-sweet with waxy fruits. Grassiness returns at the finish with a little prickle, rounding off a fresh, Summery malt. 320 bottles. 55.3% Alc./Vol. Non chill filtered.
