- Very powerful, dried fruit, lemon, vanilla, dark oak.
- A sample from WB.
Neat this is a true powerhouse, and I quite enjoyed it.
Medium sweet, dark fruits.
Green apple and some vegetal notes.
Hints of vanilla and citrus.
Very good integration of the alc.
I gave it a little water and I think it makes the fruits brighter and pushes more citrus forward.
Arrives oily and hot, almost fiery.
Sweet but kind of imediately drying.
Fruit is a lot bolder and darker than on the nose.
Water quenches the fire dramtically.
But it doesn't reduce the richness of the body, and it's still dry.
Close to long, slow fading spice.
Quite dry, yet still sweet with some wood.
With water the reduced spice shortens the finish quite a bit.
Brandy infused fruit cake. Still on the dry side.
- Nose suggests a very young whisky - 6-7yo, reminds on DL Provenance series - some young spirit, malty, citric, plum rakia (brandy). Taste is better, doesn't feel so youngish but is still very lemony & citric, quite oily, sweet & malty. Gets better with water. Finish is ok, still sweet with some light oak bitterness and dryness.
- Always liked Glengoyne and this doesn't disappoint. Some I imagine would have to add water but I enjoyed as is. This was a sample courtesy of Whiskybase.
Quite a malty nose with butterscotch, shortbread biscuits, cream crackers, honey,rain water in a metal bucket, apple juice from concentrate and white grape. An unusual nose I must say and I like it.
Quite a strong and intense arrival but palatable. It is also a lot more fruity than the nose suggests. You can taste the influence from the finishing and it's just about right.
The finish is long and astringent and those fruit notes gently fade but take a long time to disappear.
chcolate and dry fruits between the hands... honey, some nuts and oak on the nose.
by the nose it could be a refill sherry cask or some kind of wine cask.
dry at first, powerful stuff, oak, but kinda dies out a little bit, not really full of flavours but intense power.
some vanilla at the end, the taste just disappeared
i think the contact with the cask is slightly to little because of the hogshead. It could have aged some more.
- This one is quite special. Cucumber, pine cones and wild honey. Also menthol and pepper. And quite steamy and with lots of power.

- Unfortunately the butterscotch on the nose is really not my preference - others may like it, on the palate it's different, not too complex but at least no butterscotch, overall I don't find the typical Glengoyne style - it could be anything
Lots of vanilla and butterscotch, cream, lemon tarte, some green fruits too, probably even some grassy notes
Punchy, oily, lemony, good sweetness, fortunately no more butterscotch
Long, burning, more into grapefruits
