    a very formidable release from glengoyne, almost at par with glendronach cask strength,  full bodied, rich, complex, spicy and rich in sherry goodness, sadly no longer in production the new NAS version pales in comparison to this one

    Color AmberNoseQuite fruity would say apple-ish, with some nice maltyness. After a while some more notes come up. nice combination of some flowers, some slightly roasted nuts and some spices... no, more like some herbs.Overal a nice clean nose.Tastequite a nice bit of heat of the alcohol, but not overwhelming.just as the nose quite a clean taste. Overal a nice warm sweetness of ripe fruits. quite nicely balancedFinishquite long, it leaves a nice filmy tasty layer in your mouth, a bit of grainy, fruity finish, with a hint of nutsCommentsrather good whisky, but it requires some time to open up. so pour it in, take a sniff, wait a good couple of minutes and repeat :)

  9. Waykid scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    This provided my first experience of hte distillery at the beginning of my malt-journey. And rightly so - I know that experienced people have criticized this - but in my experience it was pretty perfect, even when I was still unaware of the necessity to add water to these CS-hitters. Full, honey-toffeed grainyness, some apricots all in a very round and consistent whole. Not incredible multifaceted but completely flawless. These cask strentgh OB-Goynes are highly recommendable IMO.

    Marvellous development when adding water. Needs time.
    • Nose
      No water: subtile sweet grainy malt. Sherry hint. Sweet of fruit; apple and pear.
      With water: sweet of flowers. Citrus. Fresh grass.
    • Taste
      No water: delicious warm sherry arrival. More sweetness and warmth in the development to ripe fruit.
      With water: sweet sherry arrival. Long creamy development with toffee and orange citrus.
    • Finish
      No water: long, long finish of sherry and grain.
      With water: long finish of citrus and spicy herbs.

    Score is for a bottle from around 2007

  17. Collector57 scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    • Nose
      Some lemon, andsomebarley. A bit oaky but nicely so - not woody at all.

      Slightly spicy and a hint, no it's more than a hint, of liquorice. 
    • Taste
      Sweetish, with oranges and lemons. But also  with nice malt and barley. Mouthwatering and just a little oily.
    • Finish
      Medium, continuing the theme of lemon and barley. A slightly drying finish after the sweetness of the palate.

  18. gralson scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    good relations of the price to the quality
    • Nose
      alcoholic, sweetness of the cherry, in the background lemon, ripe apples, brown grape, camphor, burbon and white chocolate
    • Taste
      very sweet, cherry, but in a minute the lemon, repeating the smell, but very intensive repeating
    • Finish
      sweet finish, at the end cool gentian, average long,

  19. Lafroy scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    • Nose
      Strong oak notes and bitterness, dark chocolate, bourbon notes, barley, possibly some root spices. It´s relatively flat and not that intensive.
    • Taste
      It tastes much better than it smells. It starts definitely sweet, but changes pretty fast and goes to sourness, chili, pepper, pepper again, hints of honey and orange, some dryness, oak, bourbon sweetness, some bitterness.
    • Finish
      Medium long, warming with hints of pepper and chili, additionally sweetness and citrus notes.
