A rare 1975 Glen Garioch bottled in 1988 by Duthie for Samaroli for the Fragments of Scotland series. The distillery is not mentioned on the label but it is known to be Glen Garioch.
Colour: straw. Nose: the attack is very spirity and rather simple, but that doesn’t last for long. It gets then both delicately perfumy and fantastically peaty and smoky, somewhat in the Brora genre (yes!) A very ‘vegetal’ peat at first, getting then very maritime, in a very delicate way. Seaweed, fireplace. What a sublime nose, very fresh and very complex – and clean! Gets slightly rubbery (bicycle inner tube) and tarry. Stupendous nose. Mouth: yes, a superb attack! Peat, pepper, ginger enter the dance right from the start, the whole being perfectly ‘rounded’. Develops on gentian spirit, liquorice roots, tea, quite earthy. Gain some feint rubbery notes, getting quite leafy. Certainly the most peaty Glen Garioch I ever had, and it stands the comparison with all islanders – easily. The finish is long, peaty, earthy and most enjoyable, with a “come back later” taste. 94 points. (thanks Bert)
