    Tasted it at a festival, got a bottle afterwards. Opened said bottle, got another one as a backup.
    It has been my favorite entry-level OB for nearly a year now.
    Among the various assorted things I like about Glengyle is the fact that they took a still from a bad-rep distillery (at least that's what more seasoned malt fans say about Ben Wyvis) and have been using it to make a great dram anyway. What does that tell you? And you can have it for less than the price of some certain NAS "lawyer whiskies".

      Bold nose, but not volatile. Hummus with a lot of olive oil. Oats and marzipan. A mineral sensation, wet sand.
    • Taste
      89 89
      Chalky and briney, then sweet cereal notes appear. Cashews and other nuts.
      Water amplifies the mineral side, it swims decently, but I'd advise to be careful with it.

      Long on bitter almonds, pie crust and burnt cookies. Oh, and mussels. Lovely.
