At Glen Garioch we take the maturation process very seriously. The quality of our casks is an essential ingredient in our recipe for producing only the finest of single malt whisky.
The Glen Garioch 12 Years Old gains its distinctive Highland character from maturation in two wood groups: American Bourbon, and Spanish Sherry casks. Each stage of the marriage adds distinct characteristics to the final single malt. Bourbon to soften and Sherry to add depth of flavour fresh heather, poached pears and just a hint of oak.
Nose - Heathery floral notes are balanced with the richness of poached pears and the sweetness of malted barley.
Palate - Crme brulee and sweet ripe banana at first then comes a light oakiness with pear fruitiness.
