Glen Garioch 1797 Founder's Reserve
Single malt - East Highlands
Nose: Leather, soy sauce, raisins, vanilla, white grapes, white chocolate, smoked ham, hints of orange peel.
Mouthfeel: Medium body, thickens, turn syrupy, mouth coating.
Tasting: Sweet salty. Smoked ham, orange peel, white chocolate, soy sauce, walnuts, vanilla, cocoa butter, hints of brass polish.
Finish: Medium. Walnuts, white chocolate, orange peel, honey.
Chocolaty, milky, somewhat buttery, with a nice tangy fruity bite. This is good whisky, and a new (ish) no-age statement bottling from Glen Garioch. I'm beginning to think the distillery character is mainly chocolaty and raisiny.
I like this a lot.
The Caol Ila Days, part two. The high flyers.
