    With less than 80 points you do this whisky an injustice. Give it some time and get used to it - it has more to offer than the color suggests (and I'm really not a fan of white wine whiskys).

  3. Lukas_Kiene scored this whisky 85 points Expert Senior

    Very exciting and surprising Goyne! Still very sour, dry and dirty on the nose, followed by a nice spiciness on the palate accompanied by delicate creamy fruit and citrus notes, a dry, tart malt note and this extraordinary dirtiness. Something else!

    NOSE: Clean and crisp, sweet and spiced, gristy and honeyed... so fresh and fruity

    PALATE: Deliciously mouthcoating in syrupy, sugary style - warming spice and runs to barley

    FINISH: Gently toasted developing to allspice, tangy citrus notes and Malted barley (FHL)

  5. glen efze scored this whisky 75 points Expert Senior

    Very light, sweet and fruity aroma, younger than 15 years. The barrel has long passed its time.
    Alcohol, bitterness and then nothing more. Nobody needs it. This is Newmake, but not whisky, miserable! The called price is a joke!

  6. McSiebecker scored this whisky 84 points Expert Senior

    Nice fruit with a slight heat
    • Nose
      82 82
      With the first nose, light smoke and stone fruits can be perceived. Later, mirabelle plums and a delicate honey scent are left behind.
    • Taste
      84 84
      The first sip is reminiscent of sour cherry paired with mirabelle plum. A little lemon is added and mixes with a slight ginger heat. After a short time in the glass, the full fruit of the stone fruit remains.
    • Finish
      85 85
      Fruity, dry, medium-long finish. Ginger remains in the mouth, paired with delicate vanilla and citrus fruits.
