    We were really lucky to get hands on this malt and are really grateful M & A!

    Nose: an entire basket of dried fruit, such as raisins, plums and figs. The fruitiness is perfectly balanced by a dark and heavy influence of the PX sherry. We found remnants of an old leather jacket hanging in a dusty wardrobe made of old oak. We could also find some hints of tobacco and a subtle sweetness with rather dark chocolate.

    Taste: this Glengoyne arrives quite powerfully and coats the entire mouth with its oily and thick texture. The palate boasts notes of cherries and dark chocolate, which reminded us of Mon Cherie chocolates. Additionally there is some Christmas cake along with zesty orange and cocoa. Beautiful.

    Finish: the finish is very long and that oily feeling in your mouth keeps lingering for ages. The leather and the tobacco from the nose are suddenly back and a well-balanced spiciness keeps tickling on the tongue.

    A whopping 91 points. WOW.

    I know, 2021 is still young - but so far this is my favourite malt this year, an absolute stunner. I'm looking forward to finding out for how long it has come to stay in the 1st place - but I'm sure it won't leave too soon.

    Nothing can be added to the designs of whisky pommel. From me, considering PLV, there are 91 WB.
    No wonder Glengoyne was very interested in buying back the keg and selling it on the market for £ 150.00 + -. Our happiness, just an infinitely long oily body. And before that, a real taste explosion of cherries, dark chocolate - yes, of course, Mon Cherie). In the past, wheat beer "tickled the navel so nicely" - today there is luckily Glengoyne 2009 Cask 1007 (was probably reserved for James alias 007), but you drink it and have fun with it - also your stomach :-)
    You won't get something like that on the regular market, at most i. R. e. private tastings if the man / woman is lucky.

    On the nose an intense aroma of dried figs, ripe oranges, dark chocolate and old sherry.
    On the palate surprisingly smooth, toffee sweetness, soaked raisins, plums roasted nuts cloves and nutmeg. Wow this is a wonderful complex dram. Diluted it developes marzipan, kakao and espresso notes.
    The finish lingers long and spicy but with no sense of bitterness but seducing malty sweetness in the very end.

    lucky you!

    A really nice PX Cask, a young sherried Glengoyne at its best, thanks for the sample Dirk and the chance for a comparison with cask #2431, which was slightly behind tonight, but both Glengoynes I could die for.

    A truly active barrel. After only 10 years of maturation, this Mslt has wrested a lot from the barrel. Very tasty nose, but then in terms of taste very "modern", ie strong spiciness with not just hints of bitterness. Behind the finish is again fruity, but still - rather untypical for PX - garnished with the bitter note. Mostly sulfur-free, but the taste does not remain suspect. But doesn't really bother.
    If you want to complain at a high level, you could say that the barrel leaves little space for the Festillat and that this heavy sherry bottling could have come from almost any distillery. Real Glengoyne nerds like me might be missing something here.
