Glen Garioch MOS

color: old gold
nose: straw vanilla, mellow sweetness, very mild and well balanced
taste: mild but with sweet vanilla notes, hey (dry) and some banana. There are almonds too. The finish is remarkably smooth and mild. The dram is developing to a real 'friend of all', this because it is relatively sweet and smooth with no rough edges at all


Color: White wine
Nose: The nose is refined and floral on the salted butter caramel, iodine, some apple and some citrus. A bit of spice in the background and touches of mint.
Mouth: well integrated alcohol, we share notes on both marine and sweet toffee on, iodine, spices, a little fruit and malt.
Easy drinkable.
Finish: rather long on a nice sweet and salty.

: White Gold.
Nose: Nose first on a nice fruity freshness, fruit salad. Then a little almond powder. Then an apple-pear mixture. A slight woody pungency after a few minutes. Exotic fruits too.
Palate: Oily, a beautiful roundness, very melted.

Comment: A very pleasant nose, refreshing. The palate is pleasant, though difficult to decipher. Water reveals unpleasant notes in the nose and mouth

Color: white wine with hints of light brown.
Nose: Powerful, herbaceous. It is on the cool grass, tarragon. I capture a certain softness. A ventilation proves caramel and red fruit (cherry).
Palate: The palate is marked by grain and liquor plant. Alcohol is present but fully integrated what brings smoothness.
Final offers lovely aromas of cereal before developing a kind of sweetness own oatmeal, the oatmeal.

“Very dry, powerful. Not my kind of dram.”
This dram has a fino-like color.

Nose (87): (5)more than average. honey, spices, citrus, pineapple.
Taste (85): smooth, dry, oily. honey, spices, citrus, pepper, floral.
Finish (85): (4)average. floral, spices.


Colour : Light Yellow
Nose : Vanilla coming through, and some citrus notes
Taste : Light, again vanilla, afterwards some fruity notes
Finish : Rather short, not impressive

Overall : Easy malt for drinking, not very complex


Colour: Straw
A nice pleasant floral nose that evolves quickly to ripe fruit but with a bit of acidity. A hint of cough sweets also.
The mouth is slightly behind the nose. It is drier than the nose announced. It is still very enjoyable.
The finish is medium length and is the closest to the mouth over the austerity of the mouth of the exuberance of the nose.

Nose: Quite some pear which disappears with aeration and it's very herbaceous.
Palate: Nice fruity herbaceous, casonade.
Finale: Fruity with spicy notes and always this brown sugar(casonade). The fruity side grows with aeration.

Comments: Lovely whisky, a little bit simple and must be drunk quickly. Well integrated alcohol.


Color: Straw
Nose : Flowery, orange
Mouth: citrus fruits, peat
Finish: Salty, bitterness


Nose: Young (like new spirit), malty, some vanilla and nutmeg as well.
Taste: Sweet, malty and some bitter wood tones.
Finish: Long, peppery and again the bitterness at the end.


Nose: It smells a little salty clear malt (light smoke). Found in the background a little fresh fruit (pear, nectarine) and a little bitter dark chocolate.
Taste: Malt reigns but leaves little room for notes but also very salty fruit intake (down), but also chocolate.
Finale: Not very long, We find the bitterness of dark chocolate, oregano with a hint of iodine.

Comment: This lack of explosion of complexity and salt has a hold on a little too strong mouth. However, we can not possibly devote to the flames of hell malt.

Nose: Fragrant (non-pejorative). Violet and lavender, but it is not catchy. A little peat, spirit, wood, coconut and vanilla.
Taste: Woody and peat. A bit fruity and mineral.
Finish: Very long, biscuit.

Comments: A very nice roundness on the palate and aromas quite melted. Pleasant but it is not a profile that I like.

The nose appears, at first glance, quite young with notes of green olive and pear , ,not very expressive. Rare hints of white pepper and jasmine scattered along make this first impression. With aeration, alcohol is no longer present, but the pear still weakens being replaced by ... just nothing. On the palate the attack is fleeting and presents a mineral drought with rare white fruit, a hint of coffee. It's really quiet. The final short length, begins with coffee and the rest of white coffee and fruit decreases rapidly to stay only on alcohol just as discreet white pepper.
No major fault, except that personality faulty, which also means a lack of quality ...

Color: White wine
Nose: Classic on white fruit with some spring floral notes and a bit of talc. It is sweeter after aeration, ripe and juicy pears, barley sugar.
Palate: The attack is sweet and slightly fruity. Here we are in line with the nose, with some additional spices (nutmeg, ginger) and a hint of coconut.
Finish: Medium length, slightly fruity with a back taste of alcohol.

Conclusion: A malt okay.

Nose: gentle (too), powdery and delicately fruity. Slightly floral with aeration (rose water). Woody / vanilla.
Palate: lively and alcoholic. In line with the slightly "blade" side of the nose (lack of expression). White pepper.
Final: there is one?
Conclusion: balanced whisky but that is far too gentle for my taste and a little too alcoholic. Hard to be talkative on whisky which is not.

Colour: straw
Nosing: young and grassy, green apples, sorbet fruits, herbal notes as well.
Tasting: fresh and malty, flagrant, whiney (like white whine). Juniper? Not really developing, a little flat and dull.
Finish: clean, not very long.

Comment: aperitif style whisky. Not stunning, but o.k. for a lazy summer afternoon.


Colour: White wine.
Nose: Starts on a whiff of alcohol. Not very talkative at first, but seems to be clean and crisp. Both flinty and grassy, with a hint of vanilla. Unsugared lemon juice. Classy and totally unsexy. And perhaps slightly cheesy after a while.
Mouth: Alcohol is more discreet now. Starts on soft vanilla and lemon peels. That’s not bad at all. Unfortunately, the mouth becomes grassier and grassier, with a strong bitterness. Like chewing grass.
Finish: The grassy bitterness becomes hardly bearable.
Comment: The ultimate experience as far as grassy bitterness is concerned. True grass juice. Not my cup of tea, but might find its aficionados.


Colour: Pale gold.
Nose: The nose is light, floral, lemon, anise, and grassy. With water a little more malt, coconut, a hint of smoke.
Taste: Rather salt, on the lemon but still with a touch of iodine, almost sparkling. Light anyway. Grows on grassy notes (nose) and woodlands.
Finale: a hint of smoke, dry, marine, with a hint of quite difficult to define metal ...

appearance: Riesling
nose: low intensity, alcohol fairly well integrated, young gruyere cheese, violettes candy, malty
taste: low intensity, alcoholic tingling, dusty malty
finish: very short


Color: Pale yellow
Nose: A light whisky, mild and dried flowers, malt in the back.
taste: A savory bite, malty and dry. Does not last long.

After: Oaky, i get wash leather in the end.
Fades away but leaves an unpleasant taste in the mouth.


Color: clear or
Nose: fresh and grassy which is confirmed with aeration. Little notes of lemon pie after some time. A lemon tart tasted in a meadow ... By looking carefully!
Palate: spicy and pungent. Fairly neutral with little development. The following sips without surprises.
Final: short notes on a rather acid.
