This one caught me by surprise, especially coming from a bourbon glengoyne. Absolutely mindblowing whisky. They don't make them like this anymore :(

 Colour: gold. Nose: this one is far from being austere whisky of course but it does smell a little austere after the exuberant ‘Exclusive’. More on grapefruit skins, a little shoe polish, candle wax, even a little cardboard… The good news is that a few minutes of breathing do open it, unleashing muscatty and citrusy notes. Tangerines, bitter oranges… A faint chalkiness in the background (dried clay). Also funny notes of fruit jelly (freshly opened pack of Haribo bears, remember?). Mouth: we’re much closer to the Exclusive now. It’s almost the same whisky, just a tad oomphier. Finish: same comments. Maybe added hints of pear drops, which is unusual in old malts according to my experience. Comments: high quality fruity old Glengoyne once again.
