Color
Amber
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

Comments

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!

Nez très agréable principalement sur la mirabelle avec aussi d’autres fruits jaunes. Attaque sucrée, le milieu est bien fruité et l’on retrouve la mirabelle du nez. Finale de bonne longueur toujours sur le fruit. Aucune astringence ne vient gêner l’expérience. Aurait mérité plus de temps, un bon dram.

couleur or, nez avec beaucoup de cire, abricot, mandarine, fruits confits, mirabelle, miel, bois noble, épices, dans l'esprit d'un Caperdo 1972. Bouche assez puissante, acidulée, très fruitée, mandarine, confiture d'abricot... toujours ce côté cire très noble, plus d'épices en fin de bouche (cannelle ?). Finale longue, un peu moins de rfuit et plus d'épices comme souvent sur ce genre de profil.

Colour: gold. Nose: as expected, we’re in the same style as the 1973s but this one is a tad less ‘clean and pure” and less all on citrus fruits whilst it’s also a little more complex and aromatically ‘wide’. Does that make sense? Granted, all the lemony and orangey notes are well here, and so are the lightly honeyed notes, but there are also other garden fruits such as cherries. Also hints of tamarind jam – did you ever try that? Touches of soft spices (mulled wine spice mix, Chinese anise, cinnamon)… With water: not much changes but no deterioration either. Mouth (neat): excellent, fruity, jammy yet fresh, getting then much grassier than the other ones and maybe a tad bitter. Some thyme and unexpected notes of wasabi from the oak (a little, just a little). With water: excellent, clean, fruity, citrusy, delicately gingery… Very easy to drink. Finish: quite long, in the same vein. Nutmeg. Comments: very, very good and very, very quaffable, as are (almost) all these old Glengoynes.
