Allandale
Connoisseur Allandale Tasting note
05 Sep 2017 6:12 pm
Allandale gave this whisky 84 points
Color
Deep gold
Nose

Warm and dry. Maltiness and fruitiness. Palo cortado sherry. Cedar and fresh oak.

Taste

Deep rich flavours. Malt,clean fruitiness, nuttiness cedar, more oak. Really hitting its stride as a mature, sophisticated whisky.

Finish

Long and allusively sherryish.

Comments

Body: Medium, very firm and smooth.

St. Pauli
Connoisseur St. Pauli Tasting note

St. Pauli gave this whisky 82 points
Color
Deep copper
Nose

Oloroso sherry, combined with barley sweetness. It has the smell of sultanas, christmas cake, vanilla, walnut and honey. Deep down is the spirit sweetness of pear and toffeed apple to be detected.  

Taste

Quite sour and drying, as can be expected but what wasn't announced by the nose. It's actually borderline dryness. Bitter grape seeds take over, with overcooked gunpowder tea, and bone dry oloroso (but than not the fruity sort). Some walnut skin enters the palet too.

Finish

Stays rather austere and bone dry. Gets more towards bitter walnut skin, ultra dry oloroso and grape seeds. 

Comments

Wow, that's a heck of a dram. It's quite dry and bitter, a bit too much to my liking actually. The nose is by far the best part.

Cheers! Paul

The nose is like a less extremely oaked Yamazaki 12. The wood tones are present but rounder and not very dominating. A liqueur-like smell, with spice (cardamom and allspice) with some plum or apricot skin, and toasted peanut. An impression of sun dried tomatos. Rich in taste with a good mix of cherry and oak. Surprisingly dry finish yet despite dryness the taste stays a satisfyingly long while.

Expert Senior Defeatless Review note
18 Feb 2016 11:18 pm
Defeatless gave this whisky 85 points

Nose: Sweet aromatic sherry, can you say a full bodied smell? Raisins, chocolate pudding. Hint of citrus, some spices too. It's more wood driven but yet rather balanced.

Taste: Sweet and sour right in balance. Some sherry, hint of oak and some tropical fruit syrup. There is a savoury note in here which is quite a characteristic for Glengoyne.

Body: Medium

Finish: medium. Some sherry, some oak some citrus.

Price: Nowadays rather expensive as it is discontinued. But it used to be a rather bang for your buck.

Presentation: Cork broke. For the rest it's nice and decent. Like the bottle.

Kaum offen, steigt einem ein voluminöser Sherryduft entgegen, gepaart mit Pflaumenkompott. Ein erster Schluck verstärkt den Eindruck noch. Wow, der zieht rein. Kräftiger Antritt, die Aromen breiten sich aus, man glaubt, der Mund ist nicht groß genug. Jetzt kommt auch die Eiche durch, fast wie Marzipan, Trauben, Gewürze. Langer, würziger, starker Ausklang. Sehr schöner Tropfen!

Da schmeckt mir der 12-jährige fast besser.
Leicht bitter im Geschmack und der Abgang ist auch nicht der Hit.
