Glen Garioch Virgin Oak Review

Glen Garioch Virgin Oak Only officially released in the last couple of days i was able to sample this this Glen Garioch Virgin Oak after my good friend Steve (@steveprentice) of the Somerset Whisky Blog sent me a wee drop of his sample that he received for the #GGgenerations Twitter Tasting.

As this sample was tasted blind, with no information other than the fact it was 48% ABV, my notes are based on that, and i was totally convinced that this was a rum cask as the flavours reminded me of at least one rum cak matured whisky.

I really enjoyed this whisky and will be picking up a bottle when they hit the retailers.
