Whisky Reviews for Glengoyne 1996 - Port Cask Finish
9 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 84.22 points
- Especially the nose is prominent, slightly thin taste and finish.
Milk caramel, spicy oak, sherry, forest fruits and gingerbread.
Thin. Fruits, caramel, honey, citrus and spicy oak.
Medium length, spicy, dry.
- So this is my third try, it's just not mine.
musty sour wine cellar, gingerbread spice
a lot of pepper, kills all the other flavors, then the lemon appears, again the gingerbread mix, pepper ...
Pepper! and then quickly angry ... and nothing
- A very nice nose, but especially the finish was not spectacular. The port wine influence is obvious. So if you want to taste a whisky with this influence, this could be on your (long) list.
The port wine influence is evident: there are sweet, sugared notes, with strawberry, and dark cherry. There is also a musty note of a port wine cellar. Next to that, there is a nice Glengoyne profile of toffeed apple, pear, a bit of dried fruit, and sweet barley. At the end, some mint brings a cooling freshness.
Still fruity, mostly on strawberry. Next to that, there is toffee, wine cellar, honeyed cereals, cinnamon, and clove.
The lower ABV shows in the finish, which is relatively short, and merely spicy. There is only a trace of fruit.
Gingerbread and nuts. Subtle wood and malt aromas. Overall, very fruity.
Very malty, strong citrus notes and dried apricots stand out.
Medium long and dry.
