SKU #1046372 91 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark Look for a crème brûlée fragrance and vanilla richness on the palate, all blanketed with smoke. It finishes long, dark and spicy, with clove, allspice and black pepper notes and a quick bite of alcohol warmth. (KN) Inner quote mark (12/2015)

90 points Whisky Advocate

Outer quote mark This was aged in a mix of bourbon and sherry casks. The nose yields Jaffa orange, plums, sherry, malt, and vanilla. Ginger, honey, more orange, dried fruit, and toasted oak on the full palate. The finish is relatively long, with spicy orange and oak. Complex and satisfying. (GS, Summer-2020) Inner quote mark

The Glen Garioch distillery is one of Scotland's oldest and most legendary. Their flagship 12 year old remains an absolute classic. This distillery has been through a few owners and several stylistic changes in the last 40 years, but as stalwart steward for the Eastern Highlands style it has no equal. One thing that always amazes me about modern Glen Garioch is the opulent cereal qualities it's malt exhibits. Malted oats, sweet grain, floral honey and an attractive leafiness. On the palate some citrus, more grains, soft round texture added by the higher proof and some flinty pepper notes. Some water and the orchard fruits come out. A wonderful distinctive Highlander that should be considered a benchmark for any Scotch lover.
