Oh Glengarioch

This rare Glengarioch (pronounced GlenGeery - almost like the movie - GlenGary) is outrageously good and in very short supply. I think i got the last bottle from Duncan Taylor. A 19yr old cask strength (must be a bourbon cask) that was put down in 1988.
Very sharp - spicy nose. Flavor is very similar and very clearly a well rounded bourbon cask. at 55.5% this needs a splash or two of water. Adiing water releases some of the alcohol and opens up a fruity blend on the palate. Finish is as good as any bourbon cask i own. lingers and warms for a good long time.
