Glen Garioch 18 Year Old Renaissance Chapter 4 (50.2%)

The release of the Glen Garioch Renaissance Chapter 4 is a moment I’ve been waiting for ever since the onset of the Renaissance project back in 2014.

Glen Garioch 1987, Cask 603, Bottled for CWS (47.1%)

A Glen Garioch 1987 single cask isn’t something you see often. In fact, It’s not common to see recent official bottlings of Glen Garioch for private clubs, despite being very prevalent between 2009 and 2014.
