Whisky Reviews for Glengoyne 2007

  1. ARDBERG scored this whisky 77 points Connoisseur

    If you love sulphur, this one is for you. It is heavy on burnt matches and gunpowder. Too bad that the whisky disappears behind all that on my palate. Yes, I know I am not 666 compatible. I sense that there is nice stuff smothered in the devil's breath.
    Without the Chanel 666 I guess it would or could have scored about 8 to 10 points higher.

    Not everyone will like it. I do. But be careful. The notes reveal the special features. I can hardly believe 10yo here.

      Oops, I wouldn't have expected that at Glengoyne. Even if heavy sherry notes pour out of the glass, which suggest a relationship to the 25yo, here we are more at a mixture of Glen Garioch 15yo Sherry and heavy-sherried Mortlach. Great sherry-typical dark fruit, but also "meaty" sulfur. I like that and can't help grinning right now. From the back I imagine a hint of Bowmore violets and Maggi.

      The sulfur was more subtle in the nose. Now a touch too much for me too. Otherwise nice and intense, dark chocolate, raisins, heavily roasted espresso beans, bitter substances, high intensity. Fits well according to 58%, but can be enjoyed undiluted.
      With a little water you reduce the influence of sulfur, then I like it better again, but I'm still devaluing it.

      The bitter wood notes play the first fiddle. If you don't like drought, get out here. The barrel was active, pure European oak. Quite intense and surprisingly long for 10yo. Then turn back to fruit, very, very tasty dates in a chocolate shell. The missing notes can no longer be found in the finish.

    • Nose
      Thick fat plums, clear sulfur, an old leather sofa in a dusty library of parchments. Then comes the fruit, oily raisins. Very steamy, old wood planks and a diesel engine.
    • Taste
      Burning New Year's bulb, sulfur, very oily sweet fruitiness, old leather, tobacco pouch. Tastes and smells far older than he is.
    • Finish
      Dark grapes, old wood and leather remain on the tongue for a long time.
