Glen Garioch 1797 Founder's Reserve, 48%

Price: $46 Issue: Spring 2016 Reviewer: Gavin Smith

The entry level, no age statement expression of Glen Garioch, offered at an unusually high ABV for a single malt in this price range. Grapefruit , lively spice, vanilla, malt, and black pepper on the nose. Milk chocolate, chili, cooking apples, and something slightly savory on the palate. Citrus fruits and lots of spice in the relatively lengthy finish. An unusual and pleasing dram for the money. £32
