Whisky Reviews for Glengoyne 21-year-old

Fresh, cooling. After Eight. Vanilla ice cream with a little caramel sauce. Walnuts. Lemon thyme, a hint of lime juice, a hint of pineapple. Sawdust, wet sand.
Light. Yellow apples, apricots, some marzipan. A hint of pepper. White chocolate cream, a hint of lavender.
The first steam from the glass has a nice, heavy and fruity sweetness. Baked plums with hot vanilla sauce and cinnamon, a mocha with a dash of rose water, dark chocolate, a tiny My Sulfur (a single New Year's bulb burned in front of the house). Semolina pudding, roasted apple, a handful of blackberries.
With a little breathing and panning, light cereal notes emerge, more semolina pudding and slightly sour scents, redcurrants and gooseberries.
Vanilla and berry sweetness (blueberry and blackberry), cherry, plums and raisins, very nicely balanced with cloves and nutmeg, some cardamom. You can leave it in the mouth for a long time and discover more subtle aromas: again rose water, subtle orange, chocolate chips, a slightly dull spiciness (chaste tree?).
Long, here the oak comes out stronger, accompanied by dark berries, espresso.
A very nice malt, so a sherry whisky must taste for me to please me really well.
