Cuvée presentation

A single malt aged for at least 8 years, bottled by the Morrison company, owner of the distillery since 1970, as well as Bowmore (1963). A bottling from the early 1980s for the Italian market, imported by Soffiantino & C S.p.a. This version is better known as a 10 Year Old (with a cork stopper) under the same label, dubbed “Parchment Label” by collectors due to the irregular cut on the sides of the label.Glen Garioch was at the time still a traditional distillery, using its own malting floors (until 1993) and a not-insignificant amount of peat to dry its malt (until its closure in 1995). An “old-style” malt. Bottle equipped with a screw cap. The Italian tax strip has begun to peel off.

The distilleryGlen Garioch

Scotland, Highlands. Distillery operational. Owner: Beam - Suntory

The second distillery to have joined the Stanley P Morrison Ltd team (which had owned Bowmore since 1963) in 1970, Glen Garioch is a leading name in the world of collectible single malts. This renown was the work of Stanley P Morrison, who, in the late 1970s, offered its distributors outstanding limited editions, including Glen Garioch 1971, produced for Samaroli. In the same time period, an 8 year old version was also released in a stocky, brown bottle. Then, in the mid-80s, several 21 year old versions from 1965 were released in various sherry and bourbon cask bottlings, some cask strength. It would not, however, be until the arrival in 1994 of the Japanese company Suntory, who bought Morrison Bowmore, that things would really pick up, notably with the Individual Cask Bottling range and the two exceptional vintages 1968 and 1970.
