Glen Garioch Highland Single Malt Scotch Whisky 12 year old
|Category||Single Malt Scotch|

The colour of sharp honey, on the nose heathery floral notes are balanced with the richness of poached pears and the sweetness of malted barley. 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. The perfect accompaniment to Parmigiano-Reggiano, our 12 Years Old binds the dryness of the cheese, which in return provides a platform for the malt's sweet fruitiness and enhances its clean barley notes.
Look for a crème brûlée fragrance and vanilla richness on the palate, all blanketed with smoke. It finishes long, dark and spicy, with clove, allspice and black pepper notes and a quick bite of alcohol warmth.
