Whisky Reviews for Glengoyne 2007 DL

4 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 84.50 points

    A pale (almost transparent), young Glengoyne from a refill sherry butt, far removed from today's dark hype bottlings: what can you expect?
    A lot! Here you actually get a great down-to-earth malt, which combines the distillery character but also (despite the pale color) wood aromas into a beautiful malt. But you shouldn't be fooled by the Refill Sherry Butt: Here you only get the wood aromas, there is nothing left of the sherry notes.

    PS: But Douglas, where are my missing 20 cl? 500 mL bottles are unfamiliar to me.

      Sweet with vanilla, malt and oak. After a longer smell, sour-fruity notes of light fruits (apple) are added.

      Immediately full and intense sweetness, pastries and malty notes (sweet yeast dough). Surprisingly full body for a 12 year old whisky. As in the aroma, fruity notes towards ripe, light fruits are added after a short time.

      Long and sweet finish, notes of ripe apricots and apricots. Great!

    • Taste
      creamy with vanilla, toast, marmalade and some caramall.
    • Finish
      long and dry, some orange zest with a hint of spice and creamy porridge/malty
