Glengarioch, 1979 Vintage, Cask #6489, 52.1%

Price: $140.00 Issue: Spring 2005 Reviewer: John Hansell

(A Park Avenue Liquors exclusive). Shimmering gold color. Lovely creamy texture. This creaminess comes through in its flavors too, binding to notes of vanilla, malt, shortbread, and delicate honey. Floral notes, citrus, red currants, and a wisp of peat provide contrast. An enjoyable, nicely polished dram from a distillery whose whisky is underappreciated-especially the older expressions.
