    sergeColour: mahogany. Nose: sherry galore this time, with some heavy yet beautiful
    notes of raisins, old Armagnac, prunes, milk chocolate and a rather obvious
    oakiness (pencil shavings). Gets even more chocolaty after a few minutes. With
    water: more pencil shavings but also more dried mushrooms (boletus), balsamic
    vinegar and walnut liqueur. A wonderful nose in my opinion. Even a little
    Japanese oyster sauce. Mouth (neat): not as thick as expected, rather fruitful
    and lively, with a heavy sherry influence but no ‘fatness’. Tons of
    liqueur-filled chocolate, white Port, raspberry liqueur and orange squash. With
    water: superb, all on chestnut purée and walnut liqueur, with just touches of
    pine resin. Finish: long, more resinous. Cough syrup and cherry liqueur.
    Comments: another ultra-clean young Glengoyne, but a heavily sherried one this
    time. Marvellous dram despite these notes of pencil shavings (no, I had no
    problems at school).
