    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.
    • Nose
      Colour wise this is cloudy.

      Panacotta, cream, brandy liqueur , it is light, sweet and expressive.
    • Taste
      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.
    • Finish
      Long, sweetish and slightly drying.

    Balanced, also tolerates a drop of water, becomes rounder and slightly sweeter.

    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 €)
