Glen Garioch 15 year old The Renaissance Chapter One, 51.9%

Price: $108 Issue: Spring 2016 Reviewer: Gavin Smith

The first of four ‘chapters' under the Renaissance banner, all of which will consist of spirit made since Glen Garioch reopened in 1997. This 15 year old release has been matured in sherry and bourbon casks, and 12,000 bottles are available. Ginger features on the early, perfumed nose, with soft toffee, oranges, and dates. Milk chocolate on the creamy palate, where the ginger theme continues, along with cinnamon and caramel. The finish offers rich chocolate and orange, which finally fades. £75
