  2. boborban scored this whisky 92 points Expert Senior

    sergeColour: pale gold. Nose: not one of these old more or less sherried Glengoynes
    at all, rather a lightly aromatic kind at first nosing, before a sudden burst of
    tinned pineapples, apricots and even litchis does happen. Quite some vanilla as
    well, honey, quince jelly and then notes of orange blossom water and Turkish
    delights (especially rose-flavoured ones). More and more emphatic, with a
    perfectly mastered oakiness providing a perfect backbone to the whole. Vanilla,
    cinnamon spread and plum pie (quetsches). A perfect nose, I must say, kind of
    Cleopatrian as some friend would say. With water: didn’t move an inch, which is
    great. Mouth (neat): extreme fruitiness! Gooseberries, apricots, pineapples,
    dried papayas, ripe juicy oranges… Almost ‘too much’, such is this baby’s
    fruitiness. With water: a little more complex, with added dried fruits. Fig
    liqueur? Excellent. Finish: long, fruity, honeyed and slightly resinous and
    liquoricy. A sin! Comments: an old, spectacular fruitbomb. One could drink
    litres of this, it’s totally excellent.

     

  3. MaltMartin scored this whisky 91 points Connoisseur

    An ultra-sweet Glengoyne. Very much to my liking. Good cask selection by Jack Wieber.
    • Nose
      Lots of fragrance. Sweet fruitiness of peach and apricot. Caramel fudge. Tiramisu. Polished wood. Summer flowers.
    • Taste
      Creamy with full mouth texture. Honey and vanilla. Marzipan and marshmellows. Light oakiness.
    • Finish
      Long and warming. A little pepper and ginger. Some cinnamon as well.

  4. nulty scored this whisky 90 points Expert Senior

    Very nice profile, with lots of fruit and less light notes giving the whole thing a lot of thickness. Tasted blind.
    • Nose
      What a fruity! It is clearly very exotic but also some rare red fruits. Mint tip, cream, butter, caramel, milk. Aeration drier notes like hazelnut powder, foal powder. A little (a little bit) alcoholic. With water, it's even better! We are no longer bothered by alcohol and a beautiful old wood wraps the whole.
    • Taste
      Always so many fruits here. Alcohol is moreover perfectly integrated. Spices that raise the whole, a small trace herbals (green grass). More pastry notes. After dilution, we obviously lose power, but the spices and the wood retain whisky a beautiful structure.
    • Finish
      More spicy than fruity, a little marked by alcohol. Desiccate then.

  5. Jeep51 scored this whisky 93 points Expert Senior

    Excellent
    • Nose
      Premier nez sur le sable chaud. A l'aération, une avalanche de
      fruits : abricots, mangue, papaye... Du miel et de la vanille en arrière
      plan, ainsi qu'un peu de bois.
    • Taste
      Ronde, ample. Beaucoup de fruits là encore. Dommage que l'alcool se fasse un peu trop sentir en début de bouche. Le bois est bien présent sans être écœurant ou fatiguant. Pas mal de fruits secs, gourmands : papaye, ananas, mangue, abricots. Un côté waxy et mielleux également.
    • Finish
      Loooooongue sur les fruits exotiques secs et la cire.
