Pronounced “Geery” in an ancient dialect still spoken in the area, the distillery is located in the heart of the village of Oldmeldrum in the North East of Scotland. Founded in 1797, it produces a whisky with character such as this 12-year-old Glen Garioch aged in bourbon and sherry casks.
Tasting notes of the distillery:
On the nose, heathery floral notes are balanced with the richness of poached pears and the sweetness of malted barley.
One the palate, crème brûlée and sweet ripe banana at first, then comes a light oakiness with pear fruitiness, leading to a long smooth, creamy and fragrant finish.
