10 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 80.68 points

  1. HammerHead scored this whisky 77 points Expert Senior

    A rather interesting nose which dissipates into a thin mouthfeel and a non existing finish. To me this suffers extensively from the low ABV.
    • Nose
      80 80
      Light, malty, some honey and faint vanilla, also quite a musty sherry note, a mild fresh fruit nose with some sour apple and pineapple. Then a subtle herbalness emerges with green tea like notes and a tiny amount of mint. A reasonably appealing nose for a bottling with such a standard presentation.
    • Taste
      77 77
      Thin and watery, mainly the maltiness from the nose with a faint honey and fresh fruit note. Rather dull.
    • Finish
      75 75
      Short: again watery and pretty malty, almost the aftertaste of a lager beer with a dusty instead of hoppy dryness to it.

    Disappointed, too bitter as for such kind of malt

  6. fgg scored this whisky 81 points Expert Senior

    • Nose
      81 81
      A slightly musty nose with some sweet fruit notes in the background: tropical fruit, pineapple, peach. In addition, the smell of Dutch whiskys comes to the fore, such a strange acid air is that.
    • Taste
      83 83
      Flat and watery. However, nice sweet fruit notes that were also in the nose but otherwise not much happens.
    • Finish
      80 80
      Short and light-sweet. Flat.

  7. J.K.Ch scored this whisky 73 points Expert Senior

    Probably the worst piece of Glengoyne we tasted.
    • Nose
      Fresh, fruity, sweetish, a little artificial.
    • Taste
      Fruit delicate bitterness of spice, quite shallow and dull.
    • Finish
      The spice is spiced shorter and dull with bitterness.

  9. PatSch23_12 scored this whisky 79 points Expert Senior

    The extreme cereal notes make Glengoyne paradoxically for me always something uninteresting.
    • Nose
      the full load of grain, which is always noticeable even in the older bottlings. Reminiscent of fresh bread, butter biscuits or vanilla crisps. Sour apple comes through, as well as creamy toffee and some cocoa.
    • Taste
      Honey, caramel and again the grain, but here with some roasted aromas, which are sharper in the end. Interplay of wood and youth? Nut nougat comes through, the fruitiness is most likely a floury apple.
    • Finish
      short and dry
