Every drop non-chill filtered
We are often asked, why, when it’s so well received, don’t we produce a few drops more of our hearty Highland malt?
Well the truth is that Glen Garioch has always favoured quality over quantity.
So rather than releasing a new batch on a whim, the Distillery periodically selects individual casks at the peak of perfection with which to reward its loyal followers. So who’s up for a fascinating journey of discovery?
Distilled in the year that Glen Garioch’s Greenhouse Project came to fruition, our Vintage 1978 sees the welcome return of peat to our Highland malt – smoked like a distant smouldering fire.
The reward for 25 years’ patience is a wave of flavour, with hints of spice, juicy fruits and a traditional old style Glen Garioch smokiness. Savour it with a splash of water.
Infused with peat and matured in a classic combination of bourbon and sherry casks, our Vintage 1990 offers honeycomb and chocolate truffles with the distant hint of a smouldering fire.
Matured for 19 long years in North American oak, our Vintage 1991 rewards you with sweet vanilla and creamy butterscotch notes, quickly followed by a burst of orange citrus and subtle heathery smoke.
Savour the subtle peat smoke and fresh Highland floral aromas in our Glen Garioch Vintage 1994, patiently matured for 17 long years in the finest North American oak barrels.
Marking a milestone in Glen Garioch’s recent history, our Vintage 1995 was the last to smoke its barley with peat, before being left to mature in the finest first fill bourbon barrels.
After two years’ silence, production recommenced in 1997. Unsmoked, our Vintage 1997 matured in a combination of first and second fill bourbon barrels.
This Small Batch Release of Glen Garioch 1999 gains it rich and full-bodied Highland character from maturation in Oloroso Sherry Casks since 1999. The result is treacle toffee, chocolate and maple syrup with a hint of spice.
The very first release of Glen Garioch fully matured in virgin North American white oak casks is unlike anything you have every tasted.
