Whisky Reviews for Glengoyne 1972
14 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 91.60 points
- It's unbelievable that despite its high abv it tastes really smooth. It really improved a lot after the bottle was opened for a few months. It became much more fruity and also has a nicer sweetness. Fantastic!
Rich, complex, fruity, honey, touch of oak wood, vanilla, ripe bananas, little dried fruits, apricots, oranges, raisins
Extremely oily and liquorice, lots of tropical fruits but also little dried fruits, very pleasant oak notes balanced with nice sweetness
Long and smooth, in the very end it becomes a bit punchy again
- It's great but boring. Seriously, it wouldn't be surprising if any of the largest wineries that can't be counted on an island take out such an old wine. Maybe Glengoyne is so positioned? Ability to have no ambition, has been familiar with playing soy sauce behind the big brother.
The aroma is very volatile, and it is obvious that the sweet and sour flavor of ripe and unripe berries is close to the slight peat, leather and sulfur flavor, but the main body of the whole wine is still a lot of heavy fruits and Fruit products, such as bananas, dried apricots, raisins, and mangoes, compared to its barrel age, the impact of oak is clearly discernible but not as good as other wines of the same age, but an extra oily feeling, including nut oil, Egg white, honey, cocoa butter, chestnut cake and coconut fragrance, this kind of oily feeling is different from Genting and kittens in recent years, but it can often be encountered in some old wines, and the final alcohol is slightly higher. .
Plain style, very stable nuts and oak flavor, greasy honey, chocolate, coffee, many dried fruits, a little fruit acid, a small amount of leather, coarse bread
Longer, cinnamon, dried fruit, caramel.
- Impressive sherry, honey, vanilla, raisins, prune, leather, mocha, orange, Christmas spices and then tropical fruits appear, excellent!
- fair puddle
wow, a hammer painter
heavy, neat sherry, old oak furniture, raisins become stronger, slightly polish, slightly new leather
round and full good raisins, sherry, leather, some oak, later cinnamon
very long good oak, roasted aromas, green leaves or grass
- Comparing this to more ubiquitous Glengoyne 25yo OB, this is a bit brighter, juicier, more winey.
- I am impressed...
It's this typical '70s style: a little mineral (wet rock), waxy (candle), barley-driven, with a lot of dried fruit (apple, apricot, plum, raisin). Still, it's vibrant and fresh on mint and nutty on almond.
Seriously awesome. Loads of blood orange, honey, demerara sugar, Dutch appelstroop, mocha, chocolate and cooling mint.
Long, moderately spicy on pepper, ginger and cinnamon. Then, dried fruit and crisp grassines linger.
