The two new Glen Garioch whiskies coming to the U.S.March 19th, 2010
The first one is the 1797 Founder’s Reserve. (Top left.)
The second one is a 12 year old. Details here on their website. So nice to see them bottled at 48%.
The Founder’s Reserve tastes sweeter, maltier, younger. The 12 year old is deeper, tastes more mature, and shows more oak. Formal review to follow soon. (Low to mid 80s is where I see them coming in, with the 12 year old getting a higher nod).
