Warm and spicy on the palate, with tastes of pancakes filled with layers of baked banana and toffee sauce, mocha chocolate and warm golden syrup.
Marking a milestone in Glen Garioch’s recent history, our Vintage 1995 was the last to smoke its barley with peat, before being left to mature in the finest first fill bourbon barrels.

|One of the oldest operating distilleries in Scotland – and its most easterly – Glen Garioch (pronounced Geery in the ancient Doric dialect still spoken in these parts) has been making its mighty malt in the quaint and historic market town of Oldmeldrum, near Aberdeen in North East Scotland, ever since 1797. Shielded from the world’s prying eyes, deep in the fertile ‘Granary of Aberdeenshire’, and only ever produced in small, precious batches, Glen Garioch is a rare find indeed, but warmly appreciated by those who like a hearty Highland malt, non chill-filtered as nature intended, with a wholesome maltiness, honeyed sweetness and delicious creamy texture to savour.
