Review No.17 – A Trio of Glen Garioch Samples

Featured

I recently received three samples from a friend who had visited Glen Garioch (for non-Doric speakers and those unfamiliar with the distillery, it's pronounced 'Glen Geery') to purchase a few distillery exclusives and, as he's aff the bevvy for the time being, was generous to send them my way with an accompanying mini tasting glass. … Continue reading Review No.17 – A Trio of Glen Garioch Samples

Review No. 4 – GlenDronach The Doric

I have a soft spot for GlenDronach. I think this has something to do with growing up in Aberdeen, but more so because of the well-known and much-fabled 'older-than-they-state' bottlings of the 15 Revival, the 18 Allardice, and the 21 Parliament (this great Words of Whisky article explains further), and because of the sherry bombs … Continue reading Review No. 4 – GlenDronach The Doric
