- Auctioned on July 19, 2020 for 52.90 euros in the electronic bay.
- Nose: Behave a bit at first, with a little time then ripe juice oranges come first on the glass. Both the fresh and the tart notes of orange can be found in the nose. In addition vanilla, brioche, some green apple and light grapes. The alcohol is well integrated and does not interfere. Not too complex, but everything fits together perfectly and becomes more and more beautiful over time.
Taste: The malt hits the tongue with full force. Very sweet and again with oranges and also a bit citrusy. I also find mineral-metallic notes and vanilla without end. The tannins are noticeable right from the start. Again there is some green apple and dry wood. The Glengoyne tolerates water and opens it a little more, making it more fruity on the tongue and at the same time more accessible.
Finish: medium with grapefruit, vanilla and sawdust.
- A strong Glengoyne with nice fresh and fruity notes, which are complemented by a fine oak flavor. The malt definitely tolerates water to develop its potential. He does what he offers well, even if it does not come across as complex overall. Measured by the price (€ 85) but too expensive for me.
initially a little sealed, it opens up nicely with water; light fruits; Apple and pear compote; Nashi pears; Citrus notes; subtle notes of vanilla and caramel; very subtle oak notes in the background; the alcohol stings a bit in the nose (but not yet disturbing)
- Delicious uncomplicated, not too complex nose
strong; creamy; Vanilla sweetness; fresh and fruity; nice notes of pear (nashi); some caramel; White pepper; delicate oak flavor
medium; slightly dry; fine fruit notes; some vanilla; White pepper; delicately tingling fresh oak flavor
- A bold, intense, even stormy Glengoyne that can tolerate water very well. Behind the alcoholic bite, creamy vanilla and sweet fruit aromas flash up, which form a nice symbiosis with spicy oak. Definitely a dram that needs full attention and water.
I thank whic (Whiskycircle) for the complimentary sample.
Fruity on the nose with ripe pears and green apples, accompanied by creamy vanilla and toffee. A hint of oak in the background combined with a noticeable alcoholic bite which isn't pungent.
Very strong on the palate with warming spices, white pepper and a touch of aniseed. This is somewhat softened by a creamy vanilla sweetness, fruity pears and some caramel.
The finish shows medium length with a sticky light fruit, vanilla, caramel and warming oak spice.
With water: After adding a splash of water, the alcoholic bite is tamed, while the fruity aromas of pear and apple, together with vanilla, get the upper hand. Significantly tamed also on the palate with creamy vanilla and fruit aromas, accompanied by distinctly dry oak. The finish is of medium length with vanilla, toffee and dry oak spice.
