Glen Garioch 1992 (Liquid Library)
Tasting notes by Ruben Luyten - Posted in Glen Garioch
Another Glen Garioch – 1992 this time. Bottled just now, as part of the new Liquid Library series.
Glen Garioch 21 yo 1992 (51,6%, Liquid Library 2014, refill hogshead, 227 btl.)
Nose: again a rounder version, with tangerines, lemon liqueur and honey. Light vanilla (orange cake) and almonds. Grassy notes in the margin, a few mineral touches and metal polish. Mouth: oranges again, then darker notes (toffee, caramel), moving towards burnt toast. Maybe peat? Candied ginger as well. Pear jelly beans. And back to more austere notes, rooty notes and zesty grapefruit. Interesting combination. Finish: medium long, partly sweet, partly zesty, with a decent amount of herbs and some cold ashes.
An entertaining Glen Garioch again, I’m quite convinced by this mix of different elements. Around € 115.
