Whisky Reviews for Glengoyne 1972 JW
5 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 91.45 points
- With water is gets a little sweeter but now there is some ginger spice.
This is very good and I think it is better neat. If you do not like a little oak, this is not for you.
Colour wise this is cloudy.
Panacotta, cream, brandy liqueur , it is light, sweet and expressive.
There is some oaky bitterness at the start but sweetness does come through later after a few decent sips, thankfully.
The sweetness is on caramel, plum sauce and faint hints of orange.
Long, sweetish and slightly drying.
- Balanced, also tolerates a drop of water, becomes rounder and slightly sweeter.
Almonds, melissa (Klosterfrau Melissengeist), rum
Mint, melissa, hazelnut, honey, rum
medium to long
- Glengoyne 1972, 37 years, 51.5% alc.
Bottler: Lars Wiebers (JWWW)
Removal: No indication of the type of barrel. Barrel number 4201, "bottled 111 days after the first half cask"
Region: Highlands, Scotland
Special feature: limited to 178 bottles
Nose: deep dark honey with almonds and walnuts. Add a touch of toffee and vanilla. Cornflakes. This is followed by heather and damp meadow soil. The honey comes back very sweet.
Palate: toffee, caramel and vanilla, honey again. In addition a slight wood influence, which does not seem bitter. The herbal nose from the nose is present, but only very lightly.
Finish: Medium to long, the high alcohol content carries grain and (how should it be otherwise) honey notes.
Conclusion: Very round and balanced, great drops. Only the age is not so strong.
86/100 points (tasted 2014, ca. 200,00 €)
