    • Nose
      The typical alcoholic edge that describes Glengoyne at times, is completely mellowed out. Very honeyed toffee, much lighter, cleaner honey than the Glengoyne 25 type of dark, forest honey. The cask influence is way more balanced here, very surprisingly, it is slightly green. The fruity side is ripe, but not overripe or dark, or heavy at all. It has a definity green malty side. With water and time even more rounded and a huge dose milk chocolate comes forward, to reinforce that definite chocolaty side.
    • Taste
      Refined oakyness with the honey that was showing up on the nose. Very fruity in the finish. Highly integrated alcohol, fudgy, creamy.
    • Finish
      It has a good body despite the relatively low abv compared to the price and the prestige that these kind of a bottles supposed to represent. Medium/medium-high finish.

    The 30 years old adds a great deal of spicyness to the 25 years old Glengoyne. This one is in perfect balance!

    Smell: [Savoury/elegant] No matter how close you are, the aroma knows how to keep the best distance from your nose. [Rich/variable] Raisin chocolate, dark jungle jam, cloves, leather, tobacco oil, find these tastes right and wrong Linear, you can easily find any kind, it is the degree of freedom and the sense of security. The refreshing sensation in the tail section carries the smell of old wood and tea. It is really sweet and full of cups, Huixing Qinfangyuan.

    Drink: The rich and full body makes people want to chew constantly, and is willing to be ignited by him. Her rich aroma is like endless spring water pouring out, and the clear cloves and chocolate are intertwined. There is always a cooling sensation in the background, so you don't feel too tired. The end rhyme seems to have no end, with a touch of tea sugar and citrus.

    Feeling: the same between the outside and the inside, smelling the fragrance and tasting have a nearly perfect match, you will not feel any gap, the rhythm of the flavor rotation is well grasped, when you think of what you can smell, the process is very wanton . It is also worth mentioning that the alcohol is very good, which has a complementary relationship with the flavor. The taste is very satisfying. If I have to say something bad, it is that the powdery breath I expected could not be found in it. This is also the reason why the balance did not get 10 points, but it is still very good.

    ps: This is an old note
