GLEN GARIOCH 23yo 1991 2015 70cl 51.7% Sansibar

Product code: WG1861I

Glen Garioch 23 yo 1991/2014 (51.7%, Sansibar, 288 bottles) Four stars and a half If this one’s anywhere near the splendid 1992 we tried yesterday… Colour: gold. Nose: starts with a buttery oak and a cup of gunpowder tea, and goes on with broken branches, orange peelings, and liquorice wood. Plus some kind of slightly tarry sand. Some cracked pepper. With water: linseed oil. Mouth (neat): smoky and orange-y, once again in the region of Springbank, with a wee tarry/rubbery side that’s a clear asset in this context. Some vanilla and orange marmalade, but that would be Seville oranges. With water: very good, green tea blended with smoked tea, with a little coffee and orange liqueur poured in. Finish: medium, rather ‘naturally’ rubbery and plasticine-y. Smoky aftertaste. Comments: another lovely characterful Glen Garioch by Sansibar. SGP:453 - 88 points.
