This Single Malt says “Sherry Casks” loud and proud.

The Glen Garioch distillery (pronounced Glen Geery in Doric Gaelic) was founded in 1797. It is located in Oldmeldrum, Scotland — a small town in the Highlands famous for producing some of the finest barley in all of Scotland.

The distillery is one of the oldest in Scotland and is operated by Morrison Bowmore Distillers, which is in turn owned by Suntory. Glen Garioch has been in continuous operation since 1797… well, almost. You see, when the ownership changed hands in 1995 there were two “dark” years when new production was completely stopped, the processes tweaked, and the peat removed from the malting. So you really have two Glen Garioch Whisky styles… pre-1995 and post-1997. Both versions have their fans and we say let your taste buds decide.

Glen Garioch 1999 Oloroso Sherry Cask Matured is all about the Sherry casks. It is very common for fine Single Malt Whisky to be “finished” in Sherry casks in order to add the perfume aromas and rancio flavours that go so well with Scotch.

But this one has done all of its aging in Oloroso Sherry casks — some of the finest available. That means that this Whisky (bottled in 2013) jumps out at you with those signature flavors and an intensely sherried, mouth-coating texture. And at 56.3% ABV, those flavors arrive at full strength.

Blended Whiskies are the result of years of craftsmanship and dedication. A master blender does not simply wake up one day with a profound ability to create a cohesive and enjoyable liquid. From nosing the liquid to working out quantities of each different grain and malt to go into the blend, a master blender can take years, if not decades, to train.
Categories of Scotch Whisky: Single malt, Blended malt (formerly called Vatted malt), blended, single grain and blended grain Scotch.
The Glen Garioch 46YO,  is the oldest official bottle from the distillery.
Is Scotch always Scottish? What do you think? Yes. The answer is yes.
In November 1972, Glen Garioch released its first single malt in 180 years. Previously the Whisky was used in blends like VAT 69, Grant's Standfast, Bell's and Drambuie liqueur.
Single Malt Scotch Whisky is made in Scotland using a pot still distillation process at a single distillery, with malted barley as the only grain ingredient. It must be matured in oak casks in Scotland for at least three years (most Single Malts are matured longer, though).
