Thanks for the pronunciation(s) guys!
I really like the glen garioch 15 of whisky galore.. very 'toasty' I would say. But then again, I like all whisky galore bottlings I've tried so far (auchentoshan 10, mortlach 12, glen garioch 15). After reading this thread, I think I'll go look for an OB tomorrow..
Getting off the subject here, perhaps a diffferent thread soon to come. . . I've been very impressed with the Whisky Galore offerings as well. The only one that I found to be (somewhat ordinary) - and not in a bad way, was Aultmore which this store had for $29.99 and I couldn't resist. Wondering lambda, have you tried the WG -Glen Elgin 1991 12 year old? I found that to be a smashing Speyside!!
And to stay on topic here, comparing old to new, I was wondering do we mean old as in age (21) compared to newer as in only (10 years old) or are we inquiring about the character of the same whiskies produced by the distillery years ago compared to what they now produce? Asking because it also sounded like maybe the comparison was being drawn based on the age of current bottles. If so maybe the title would be more fitting Younger
instead "old & new"
Unfortunately Glen Garioch is one of many singles I never got around to becoming familiar with thus I have no idea if todays bottlings are different from yesterdays. I'm glad I did taste it recently though. It definitely earned a slot in my memory.
