Glen Garioch 12 Year Old Scotch Review

Glen Garioch 12 Year Old Single Malt Scotch is distilled in the Highlands region of Scotland. The unpeated whiskey is non chill-filtered and aged first in bourbon casks and then Spanish sherry casks before bottling.

On the nose, Glen Garioch (pronounced “Glen-Geery”) 12 is light and floral, with notes of heather and fruit – most noticeably apple and pear. It’s smooth on the palate like most Highlands, and it moves between fruit, oak and spice. The bourbon influences lend some sweet vanilla and caramel, while the sherry casks provide the warming fruit and subtle spice. It finishes oaky and dry.

Glen Garioch 12 has plenty of oak influences throughout, especially for its age, but they’re never harsh. Both the bourbon sweetness and sherry fruit wrap it into an easy-drinking package.
