Whisky Reviews for Glengoyne 17-year-old

4 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 87.25 points

  1. KayMeertens scored this whisky 90 points Connoisseur

    The difference with the bottle under ID 27366 is the text on the golden cap which is missing from that one. 

    Of the ones with the text there's even a slight difference in font types (straight and italic) but these differences are not on Whiskybase.
    • Nose
      Plum, almond, tangerine, toffee, leather, yellow raisin and cocoa.
    • Taste
      Toffee, tobacco, leather, plum and dark chocolate.
    • Finish
      A lot like a cognac. Almond, toffee, leather, dark chocolate and orange.

  3. Jeep51 scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    I was not expecting the wonders of this whisky and yet I am very pleasantly surprised especially by a very elegant nose
    • Nose
      Delicate, feminine? Plums, apricots, almonds and leather also associated with a greener side and carried by biscuits and butter. With aeration, dried fruit, even candied: currants and orangettes.
    • Taste
      Lack a little pep and the attack is a little soft. It does not remain less interesting with always these plums, a lot of leather,   a little honey and certainly some toffee? After a dozen seconds, it pecks slightly the tip of the tongue before a spicy wave does not appear.
    • Finish
      Long and slightly tingling (spicy) and a hint of perfume.

  4. Erik Elixir scored this whisky 80 points Connoisseur

    Bind tasting.
    • Nose
      Dusty, sherry, oily, herbs and syrup. Fudge and overall a bit to sharp.
    • Taste
      Plastic notes, fudge, corn, some liquorice and earthy.                      Very weird taste. Looks like a rye whisky imho.
    • Finish
      Sweet fruits and later some classic notes. Brown spices cookies, spices, meaty and laurel.
