Whisky Reviews for Glengoyne 2008

4 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 88.90 points

  1. SAND scored this whisky 92 points Expert Senior

    NOSE: opens with dried fruits, wintergreen and mint. With some air loads of old mahogany furniture, wood polish, honey and treacle, dark chocolate. Later dried tobacco and hessian cloth. (92p) A few drops of water opens it up more without changing it. (92p)
    TASTE: The arrival is sherried but dry, with lots of dried fruits and baking spices. On the mid palate more dried fruits and baking spices. Rich and concentrated. (92p) A few drops of water opens it up a bit more while adding both sweetness and some black pepper. (92-93p)
    FINISH: Sherried, mild black pepper, long (91p)
    OVERALL: Concentrated and tasty sherried whisky. Perhaps not incredibly complex but very well matured. Total score 92 points.

  4. SchottenDicht scored this whisky 92 points Expert Senior

    Nose: caramel, vanilla sugar, a touch of malt, sweet sherry, lemon
    Mouth: Incredibly sweet despite 60%, cherry pie, some elderberry, plum jam.
    Finish: Long, full, not bitter, no oak. The Amarena cherries have a long lasting effect.

    A very delicious, young whisky, which is round for me and absolutely my prey scheme!
