  1. WhiskyLovingPianist scored this whisky 84 points Connoisseur

    I really should have gone for food and then bed. Alternatively, the SMWS was just round the corner from Whiskylive 2019. SMWS Chris [#2] recommends a Glengoyne, which is apt given the official bottlings flight I took the day before:

    N: It’s very raisin-y, reminding me of the first [ex]-bourbon-matured Dalmore I tried from SMWS [WB]. [I think raisins may come from vibrant casks]
    T: I’ve forgotten the joys of the 'SMWS style’ - clean, candid, direct! Unexpectedly, yet without complaint, this one is a touch sweet.
    F: A quiet clean finish.
    C: Very good faithful juice.

    SMWS notes:

    An exuberant nose of juicy fruits provoked a sense of excitement as ripe pineapple and gooseberries flirted with pomegranates in a flower garden. Papaya arrived with a squeeze of lime juice whilst poached pears offered a softness that crumbled into chalky sweets. A sprinkling of ground cinnamon delivered a pleasing spice on top of glazed apple tart with sticky fudge and walnuts that blended into soft new leather. The palate tantalised the tongue with chilli and ginger before a hefty deliverance of butter pastry indulged us with Danish pastries laden with raspberries, blackcurrants, maple syrup and pecans. Strawberry tarts and lemon sponge cake directed us further towards fruity delights before the finish arrived bound in orange skin, spice and dry wood.
