    The GG distillery shop unapologetically upped the price from £90 to a whopping £120 within one year and boldly claim this year's Teapot Dram to be young as if that were a sign of quality. Hmm.
    Granted, last years TD was better + seemed older than recent A'bunadhs, but now for more than twice the price, I think I'll skip this one and live off of batch 6 stock.
    Kinda sad for Glengoyne, but good luck to all buyers that you'll get legendary juice this time.

    Powerful sherry malt, rich in intense aromas. I can only be amazed at what you got here in a rather younger whisky, even if you notice that it is not like a> 20 year old malt. Definitely tolerates some water, then it opens wonderfully and there is a lot to discover.

    Compared to Batch 6, which may be a bit more spicy / woody and fresh, Batch 7 is a bit sweeter / fruity and more set. Both have their nuances in their nuances, but the differences are quite small.

  3. erwinnlim scored this whisky 91 points Expert Senior

    Supposedly sourced from first-fill European oak Oloroso sherry casks between 8 and 14 years old. However, this does not present like an 8 year old at all. Extremely robust and well matured.
    • Nose
      Huge sherry bomb on the nose. A burst of strawberries, dried plums and sultanas, baked marzipan and dark chocolate. A distinct spice from the European Oak gives this a peppery warmth. Some orange peels well. Treacle sweetness. Deep, dark leather and tobacco notes as well. Loads of cinnamon, cloves and ginger. A touch of cooling peppermint and a minerality to it as well.
    • Taste
      Oily and thick on the palate. Again big sherried rum raisins with dried fruits and hazelnuts. Christmas cake. More treacle and almost a burnt caramel. woads of dark chocolate and cocoa. Orange marmalade. Big brown sugar and cinnamon notes along with a punch of pepper and ginger spice.
    • Finish
      A long finish with loads of warming spice on the back of the palate. All that pepper and ginger eventually calm into bitter dark chocolate orange notes along with the even more dried fruit sugars.

  6. drummer & timmer did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    On the taste, it has initial swathes of red apples, demerara sugar and chocolate-enrobed Turkish delight, which give way to a tangy Seville marmalade, cinnamon, cloves and rich, dark cocoa. It has an exceptionally long finish and a burst of crystallised sugar sweetness at the end.

  7. iurado scored this whisky 95 points Expert Junior

    Expensive and not worth this price, but so far the best "teapot". Since I got the bottle as a gift, I only rate the drinking pleasure and that is worth 95 points.

    A slightly stronger sherry whisky than you are used to from Glengoyne. The fruit flavors come through us well because the teapot just doesn't fit into the light, pleasant Glengoyne fillings, it stands out
