The bottle states “1st Chapter in a Four Part Story”, distilled in 1997 – after a short period in which the distillery was closed. Coming three years the distillery will release three more chapters in a similar, limited release by a 16, 17 and 18 year old.
Conclusion: a very likeable and gentle dram, as most Glen Gariochs tend to be. The price is rather steep for a 15yo, so I am not sure we will be on the lookout for a bottle – she is just not special enough to spend this kind of money on…
More info: there are only 12000 bottles available.
a very generous (20cl!) sample was provided by Glen Garioch for us to taste and share among friends
