  1. MaltMartin scored this whisky 90 points Connoisseur

    The same sweet and fruity profile of the Glengoynes 1972 from Daily Dram and Jack Wieber.
    • Nose
      Honey and vanilla. Beewax. Peach and apricot. Lemon as well. Hints of lavendel.
    • Taste
      Creamy and waxy. Syrupy. Oranges and tangerines. Coconut. Butterscotch. Toffee treacle. But also light oakiness and pine.
    • Finish
      Long and warm. Clove and ginger.

    The nose is top, fruity, varnished wood.
    In the mouth: delicious texture, it is really very waxy but the fruity promise of the nose is not kept. It was however largely ventilated.
    The finish is long, without bitterness but no surprise either.

    Banana apricot orange sweet spices, a real fruit salad, really drinkable

  5. sagara-kun scored this whisky 93 points Connoisseur

    Simply superb, everything is in the balance.
    • Nose
      Sublime nose. The fruits are present and expressive.
      Banana flambé, pineapple, peach. Very light caramel. Wax. Some spices.
    • Taste
      In the mouth of Haribo. Liquorice
      We are mainly on fruit salad.
      We oscillate between lemon, apricot, orange jam. The acidity of currant.
      It is very balanced and complex.
    • Finish
      In the total continuity of the mouth. Long and fruity.

    Once again I preferred the nose (more complex) but it's an excellent and tasty Glengoyne 1972.
    • Nose
      Fruity and waxy. Plums, apricots, oranges, candied fruits, honey. Precious wood, mint and spices (cinnamon and more). Fresh and very good.
    • Taste
      Fruity, jammy, waxy and tart. Citruses, apricots, bananas, vanilla, spices. A little bit of oak.
    • Finish
      Long. Drier with lingering fruits and spices.

    In a blind tasting I would rather guess it's one of the Caper 72 fruit bombs or one of the recent old Speyside region releases from 73 or 75. Anyways this is one is excellent!
    • Nose
      Intense fruity, honeycomb, tropical fruits incl. mango, passion fruit, pineapple, but also some peaches and apricots - very good
    • Taste
      Punchy, very oily, creamy, waxy, honey, fruity, same as on the nose, peppery, coconut powder, gentle oak wood - great
    • Finish
      Medium long, warm, spicy, zesty
