I took a sample at the Spirits in the Sky festival of this new vintage from Glen Garioch. It is the 1995, bottled at cask strength.

The nose starts off honeysweet and minerally. Flints, citrus and some camphor. Quite creamy on beeswax. Hints of nuts and nougat. Coconut and sweet barley. Something sourish like yoghurt. Nice.

It is oily and spicy. Very spicy, in fact. All sorts of pepper and a handful of ginger. Very sweet on yellow and white fruit. But coconut jumps out. I am reminded of Bounty. Perfectly quaffable without water.

The finish is smoky, but short.

Nice dram, albeit nothing special. Around 60 EUR.
