Whisky Reviews for Glengoyne 1999 MoS

12 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 89.56 points

  1. LeChiffre scored this whisky 90 points Connoisseur

    Anyone expecting a sherry bomb here will be disappointed. A beautifully matured malt from the sherry barrel without being killed by it. Nice interplay of fruity sweetness and spice with a fine sherry influence, in the mouth it is clearly on the spicy side (I would like a little more fruit in the taste even better). All in all, a great malt that doesn't need any water (only softens the nicely spicy profile).

    That would be formidable for half the price.
    • Nose
      91 91
      Very pleasant and round without flaws.

  9. Falnor scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

    Sherried Glengoyne and MoS go a long way to a blind winner. This bottle wasn't cheap however
    • Nose
      89 89
      A good dose of raisins and sweet sable grapes. Mocca pastry and cream with chocolate puding. Not at all like those young heavy knock out 'sherried' malts you saw a lot in 2019.
    • Taste
      90 90
      This is very smooth. The alcohol is on the background and the spices to the talking with the cask influences. Old waxed furniture,
    • Finish
      87 87
      A lot of spices, some dry notes from the wood but the sweetness makes it more rounded than bitter
