  5. PRV scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

    The nose is sharp and resonant, at the beginning there are clear hints of bourbon… burnt caramel, maple syrup, sherry, although no, more wine shades, in the finale, varnished oak countertop.
    The body is oily. The taste is sweet and spicy, a variety of oak shades, sherry notes, but not clearly and all the same hints of bourbon.
    The aftertaste is long, astringent, chocolatey with pieces of salted caramel.
    It's not quite a sherry whisky, but you can feel a lot of influence from American white oak. Nothing like the earlier Glengoins, but it's delicious.

  9. LeChiffre scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

    Pleasing fruity-spicy Glengoyne (with a distinct peppery-spicy touch in the mouth) of more modern school. Shows noticeably less of a taste profile in the right “old oak cupboard, leather couch, tobacco”, such as a Glengoyne 1998 (WID 39041) similar age from earlier years (yes, the development of the quality of sherry casks says hello). Apart from that, it is still a very tasty SC Glengoyne, but at an ambitious price (which is of course not a new discovery at Distillery Only Bottlings).
    • Nose
      89 89
      sweet and dark fruity; ripe red (berry) fruits; Dried fruits; Raisins; some orange notes; tender cherry; Spices; delicate nutty notes; only subtle oak; delicious fruity and spicy nose
    • Taste
      90 90
      strong and voluminous; lies peppery on the tongue; dark fruity; Dried fruits; Raisins; dark chocolate notes; sparkling oak spice; Water softens the peppery flavor
    • Finish
      88 88
      long and warm; peppery-spicy; Dried fruits; some espresso; tart dark chocolate; light oak seasoning (not bitter - to be expected due to the American oak)
