Whisky Reviews for Glengoyne 2008

2 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 89.77 points

  1. aspa scored this whisky 90 points Expert Senior

    Caramel and cane sugar over dried plums and raisins. Vanilla. A lot of sherry, a little alcohol but not as one would expect with the strength and the young age. A sticky cutie. Funny when the smell just gives you the feeling of a viscous, sticky mass of sugar in the glass.
    Caramelized sugar, spices and dark chilli chocolate in the mouth. Some alcohol stings the edge of the tongue. Again the sugared prunes and raisins. More cocoa or very dark chocolate.
    In the finish, medium-long and a bit spicy, you can now tell the young age. Good, but not great. A bit bitter chocolate sticks in the mouth for a surprisingly long time.

    Very good stuff! N-93, T-90, F-88, totally very good 90 points

  2. dumdi_san did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    Color: dark reddish brown

    Nose: honey, malt, very fruity nose (a mixture of fruit cake and fudge)

    Taste: initially velvety, it tingles after a few seconds but on the tongue and is slowly stronger, the fruit cake flavors fight with the caramel fudge for dominance. The second sip is clearly fruity with some honey, malt and stone fruit

    Finish: long-lasting, here you can feel the pre-assignment of the barrel (Amoroso - an Olorosoart), which brings a surprising amount of sweetness in the long finish and fades very nicely with caramel and fudge notes.
