    OLDENZAAL - Friday, September 21, 2018
    Especially for our 100-year anniversary, Robbie Hughes, Distillery Manager at Glengoyne, has selected a barrel. This Single Cask Oloroso Sherry Hogshead is "hand selected" and is a perfect example of craftsmanship. The whisky has an elegant balance between crème brûlée, red apple and rosehip, with a delicious aftertaste. The secret: no peat.
    The official presentation of this special and limited available whisky will take place during the festivities in Oldenzaal on Sunday 7 and Monday 8 October. Visitors will be given priority with regard to allocation.

    This Glengoyne is how I like them (although a bit youngish); perfect alcohol integration, decent body and complex enough to keep you sniffing and sipping for an hour or so. This whisky delivers a variety of oranges combined with caramel and chocolate sweetness. Nicely balanced by wood and spices.

    A calm, soft, malty, dark body, a fermented food-like taste that comes up from behind

    Thank god this was no PX cask, it's sweet enough as it is.

    After having tried three CS sherried Glengoyne aged 10-12 years (and being familiar with all the age statement expressions in the core range), I can say with full confidence that GG really shouldn't be bottled below 15 years of age if you can help it at all. ;)

      American oak, I'd wager (the marzipan tipped me off). Rather modern sherry, sweet and red-fruity. Cherries in vanilla sauce... And not much else, initially.
      Water releases floral and arboreal aromas and more oak spice, all of which are welcome as a counterweight to the almost artificial-seeming, cherry-like sweetness I got at first contact. 83-84 points undiluted, 86-87 pts with water.
    • Taste
      84 84
      Without water the spiciness that kicks in halfway through knocks your socks off. Too much to handle for a wuss like me. So, with water: much more balanced and civilized. Still youthful and vibrant, but the boozy bite is reigned in, and the oak now has more to contribute than just an avalanche of peppery spice. It's still a bit hot toward the end, though, which is an effect I'm not a fan of.
    • Finish
      82 82
      Coffee, chocolate, leather, red wine gum, a few indistinct herbal notes, and still some heat.

  6. Cubey666 scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    sweet delicate tones, clearly from a good bourbon barrel, juicy, thick red fruits, soft sweetness, actually tastes quite older than 12 years.

    Strong, but not overwhelming sherry sweetness, a lot of sherry, oak, wood, pepper, comes across much older, the wood is very present, but not bitter. Pretty optimal sherry whisky, especially for its age. Goes over 10 years older.

    Thanks for the sample @BehindSpace, I really like this Glengoyne. Nice Oloroso barrel maturation, less sweet taste, nevertheless fruity with lots of earthy and nutty aromas.

    Very well done for a 12 year old. (I would have bet on a finish in red wine barrels ...)

    Toffee Apples & Cherries
    For the 100th jubilee of the Dutch importer De Monnik Dranken, the distillery manager Robbie Hughes selected this single cask from 2015. It was presented a little over a year ago, but only now reached my neck of the woods thanks to my Dutch buddy Manny.

    Now that is a dark and sweet nose. Figs, raisins and dates, candied sugar and cherries. The whole is sprinkled with warm caramel. And the alcohol is perfectly integrated. This smells soft, despite the sturdy ABV. Nice.

    It could do with a little more body. This is quite light. Luckily the taste is bull’s eye. The fruit is rather red now. Think raspberries, toffee apples and cherries, nicely seasoned on nutmeg, cinnamon and mocha. Some hazelnuts appear. It becomes a bid drying towards the end, but remains smooth enough to keep things pleasant.

    The finish is a nice continuation of the palate, but could have been somewhat longer and more intense. The spices fade just a tad too quickly to my taste.

    Nicely balanced whisky. This would have been perfect for The Legacy. But hey, the Dutch too deserve a good dram from time to time, right? Just kidding. Thanks, Manny.

    Pleasant oloroso SC, hardly felt the alcohol without water, especially in the nose, despite the high 56% ABV.

      It's there but you would expect more from this drink, based on the nose and taste.
