Glen Garioch 2011, Liquid Treasures

  • Right, Marylin Monroe and a cocker spaniel together in the sea. Makes plenty of sense, does it not. Colour: white wine. Nose: back to the style of the golden barley, and with growing notes of new wellies and tyres this time. Rubber bands, soot and limoncello. With water: similar notes, plus leaven and just porridge.


    Mouth (neat): bright and pungent lemon and green grapefruits, with some kind of paraffin and graphite oil over all that. Very tart. With water: the lemons seem to have won the war here, and we shan’t complain.


    Finish: long, greener once again, and once again with nods to old Glen Garioch, circa 1970-1975. Comments: a tricky drop for sure. The bitterish rubber can be a little challenging at times. Where’s Bielle? Or hey, Neisson?

    SGP:462 – 83 points.

  • Nose: quite green, with lots of green bananas and grassy notes. Slightly riper apple notes. Sencha tea and other leafy hints. Unripe pineapple. Sweet cereals and vanilla notes. Young, slightly spirity.


    Mouth: quite sweet and hot, but again fairly neutral and spirity. Barley sugar, hints of cereals, porridge and bread. Fruit eau-de-vie. Some pepper and nutmeg as well.


    Finish: medium long, all on barley and spice.


    Very natural and close to the raw materials. The barrel didn’t really bring much to the table so the end result is a little uninspired.
