I don't know why this doesn't get better reviews. It's in my top twenty rotation. The 8yo and 10yo are nice, and cheap, too
Name--Glen Garioch 15yo 43% abv
Quote--Like a Thanksgiving dinner
Nose: Pecan pie, honey-glazed ham with pineapple, pumpkin pie, warm caramel
Palate: Glazed walnuts, malt, lemon zest, tree bark, light smoky glow
Body: Thin, firming
Finish: Short to medium, nut shell dryness, with a lingering sweetness
Notes: Why does this remind me of an Indiana winter? It has something special tucked away inside all those flavors that is so comforting. Balance, balance, balance. I’m curious about the 8 and 21, too. Revise: It holds the profile to the very last drop Replace: YES. Definitely the richest of the 3. 8yo, 10yo, 15yo, that is. Still can't find the 21yo.
The main theme is the nuttiness. It is so uniquely different that I keep one expression open at all times to throw in there between all the standards.
Definitely worth the price it goes for here, $40+US. The 8 & 10 are around $20-$22.
