Glengarioch 1990 – Kintra

Rating: 80-100 out of 10

Nose: herbal, fruity and sweet. Very wood-driven, almost un-whisky-like. Fresh oak casks, with bags of herbs and vanilla. It’s almost like a well aged bourbon or a rum. Doesn’t come about as being very sherried. Caramel, toffee and Baileys: quite sweet and creamy, but in a very good way. Also some licorice root and a hint of smoke. This one needs a lot of time to show it’s full potential, but it’s really nice.
Mouth: very different from the nose. Woody and pretty tannic. Herbal and medicinal, almost a bit like Jaegermeister. Quite spicy and very full bodied. Also very drinkable neat.
Finish: long and herbal. Not spicy, but herbal. It’s almost like a bourbon. Very nice.
