Glen Garioch First Editions 2008 10 Year Old (70cl)

New

After 10 years in a single refill hogshead, this expression was bottled in 2019 by family-run independent bottler Hunter Laing & Co. as part of the First Editions series. Only 204 individually numbered bottles have been filled at a preferred strength of 46% abv, free from chill filtration and artificial colouring.

The nose is sweet with green tea, fresh banana and cream. The palate is fruity with tart lemon notes and sweet malt, before a long and fruity finish with a dry oak note.

    The Glen Garioch distillery, which originally incorporated a brewery as well, stands on the very edge of the town, with a narrow lane connecting it to the main road between Aberdeen and Banff. The Manson brothers who founded it came from farming stock, and were respected members of the local community. Other members of the family were merchants and tanners, and an uncle had been a vintner in Oldmeldrum. In 1837, the year before co-founder John Manson died, they were joined by his son, also named John Manson (1804-1877). He took over the business, and as well as operating the distillery, opened a snuff mill, maintained the family's interest in tanning and acquired farms in the neighbourhood. He finished life as a landowner, with the proud title 'Laird of Fingask', derived from his main farm, and married Elizabeth Blaikie, a cousin of the explorer, David Livingstone.
