Whisky Reviews for Glen Garioch 2008 cQs

5 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 84.26 points

  1. Rannsachair scored this whisky 85 points Expert Junior

    Nose: spices like cinnamon, some light vanilla and alcohol. Does not change that much in the glass after 30 minutes. Might be different when the bottle oxidizes a bit more.

    Taste: neat, an increasing amount of pepperiness, with some sweetness in the background. Quite astringent even after 30 minutes in the glass. With water: A bit more sweetness but still quite fiery and astringent.

    Aftertaste: Medium lenght with loads of pepperiness after which it fades to black.

    All in all, quite a "raw"dram. Benefits from some water and maybe also from some oxidization.

      Some "raw" taste straight from the bottle. A little bit of water can tolerate this dram well and makes it more accessible. There is more fruitiness to be discovered in both aroma and taste. For this price certainly not bad and fun to experiment with, curious how it will develop with some oxidation. I suspect this dram is getting better with time.
