1993 Glen Garioch "Adelphi" 21 Year Old Single 1st Fill Sherry Butt Cask Strength Highland Single Malt Scotch Whisky (750ml)

SKU #1418147

This exceptional single cask of Glen Garioch was bottled way back in 2015 by Adelphi. They split the cask between the US and European markets and bottled 221 bottles for this side of the Atlantic. The dense dark sherry and old school malt character are indicative of the old style Glen Garioch that has since been adjusted. They used their traditional malt floors all the way up until their closure in 1994, so this may have been made from barley malted onsite. Regardless of that fact, the spirit is one of the finest modern Glen Gariochs we've ever tasted, aged to perfect maturity in a top notch first fill sherry butt. The nose is the perfect balance between dark oloroso aromatics and sweet malt - expect big christmas cake, baking spice, stewed fruit and exotic woods. On the palate dense sweet up front rancio fruit, big spice tempered by candied citrus, ovomaltine, and ginger spice. Needs one drop of water but not much else. This is definitely the old style Glen Garioch that we love so much, although it's not particularly peated there maybe an ultra subtle influence there that's lost behind the age and the sherry.
