    I had this whisky in a blind tasting. Great surprise!
    • Nose
      90 90
      Nice fruity nose, but wouldn't have guessed sherry. Around 50% alcohol, it is noticeable, but not bothersome.

      But then you can feel the alcohol. The fruitiness gives way to a light muff, made me guess that I was very old.

      Medium length, oak, light muffiness.
      Great whisky.

    A young Glengoyne who thanks to the Sherry Quarter Cask was able to absorb a lot of flavor. There is a nice interplay of youth and maturity. On the flip side, the mellow flavors of this malt also appear a bit fake. Nevertheless, a great opportunity to try a single barrel from Glengoyne and a very interesting bottle.
    • Nose
      87 87
      From a distance, fruit aromas of red apples and red berries and plums flow towards you. The alcohol can be felt in the nose, but is well integrated. While the fruits only appear acidic, a nice sweetness comes through after a short time. This increases up to beautiful vanilla and caramel notes.
    • Taste
      84 84
      On the tongue, a great fruity acidity immediately promotes salivation. The sweetness is only in the background here. The alcohol is very well integrated, the almost 55% are almost not noticeable. A slight spiciness finally comes to the fore, but very subtly. This shows the youthfulness of the whisky, it lacks the age for ripe sherry flavors.
    • Finish
      83 83
      The finish is initially warm and medium overall. You can now feel more and more of the oak that remains when the intense fruit has died away.

    Tried on the Hanse Spirit because I was thinking about adding a bottle to my Glengoyne collection. I clearly decided against it ...
    Basically, I'm a big fan of Glengoyne as well as Tom's bottlings. Here, however, I was bitterly disappointed according to my personal taste. In spite of the appropriate time allowance, I already lacked balance in my nose. The taste then came up with "musty" notes, which I cannot assign to the basic character of the distillate or classic sherry casks. Whatever the pre-loading of the barrel was, unfortunately, it doesn't suit my taste at all. Based on the other rating, others are obviously very different. Nice that tastes are different.

    Interesting Glengoyne, which seems to come from a Fino or Manzanilla Sherry barrel due to its character.
