Quick Overview

The small Highland distillery of Glen Garioch has released their first small batch bottling fully matured in virgin oak casks. Expect some real power from these pristine, new casks. As many whisky lovers will know, there are an increasing number of whiskies hitting the market with various finishes and maturations to try and satiate an ever-growing interest for whisky. A velvet explosion of rich buttery malt, chocolate and spice. Tangy orange and ginger marmalade melds with treacle syrup and rich chocolate cake, leading to a long and warming finish of barley sugar and spice. One of the oldest operating distilleries in Scotland and its most easterly Glen Garioch (pronounced Geery in the ancient Doric dialect still spoken in these parts) has been making its mighty malt in the quaint and historic market town of Oldmeldrum, near Aberdeen in North East Scotland, ever since 1797. Shielded from the world’s prying eyes, deep in the fertile ‘Granary of Aberdeenshire’, and only ever produced in small, precious batches, Glen Garioch is a rare find indeed, but warmly appreciated by those who like a hearty Highland malt, non chill-filtered as nature intended, with a wholesome maltiness, honeyed sweetness and delicious creamy texture to savour. Released in 2013, this is the first ever release of a Glen Garioch whisky aged entirely in virgin North American oak. Scotch whisky has a history of using used barrels, be it sherry, bourbon or something else, as it is widely felt that new wood would overpower the delicate flavours. This is rich with notes of treacle, chocolate and orange.

Details

Glen Garioch use virgin North American white oak casks for the entirety of the maturation for their Virgin Oak release. Using brand new barrels for whisky is becoming quite a trend, and the big, bold flavours that come from this release surely show why.

Color:        Vibrant golden yellow.
Nose: Oat cereal with a sprinkle of brown sugar. Pine breeze and a vanilla hum.
Taste:   A big, chocolate burst, with chewy toffees and sugar coated sweeties.  Spices and cloves too. Complex and tasty.
Finish: Vanilla reappears to calm down the oak spices for a nice, long finish.
ABV: 48%.
