    sergeFrom a bourbon hogshead. I should have tried this before. Colour: gold. Nose: oh
    yes, this is one of these wonderful natural Glengoynes, totally untainted with
    sherry, exploding with fresh almonds, orgeat, macadamia nuts, then vanilla and
    maple syrup, touches of cellulosic varnish and then tons and tons of white
    chocolate. With water: and now quinces and artisan marzipan (I wrote artisan
    because you also have junk marzipan loaded with bad sugars and oils in
    supermarkets or else – buy less, buy better). Mouth (neat): punchy and totally
    au naturel, with oranges and fresh almonds, then gooseberries and plum spirit
    (tankerloads). Also touches of olive and sunflower oil, vanilla, more sweet
    barley and then overripe apples and maybe greengages. Full bodied and yet
    elegant and ‘greatly sharp’. With water: barley syrup, in a way. Only the spicy
    oak became sharper, loses one or two points here. Finish: long and, sadly, a
    notch too oaky and dry now. A crying shame because I was thinking this baby was
    worth more than 90 in my book. Comments: forget about the finish and it’s a good
    91, but taking the slightly oaky-ish finish into account, we’ll go for only…

    A beautiful hogshead of Glengoyne 1990 bottled for The Whisky Exchange. Creamy melted vanilla ice-cream on thick crust baked apple pie. Glengoyne`s lack of peat leads some to regard it as a worthy but dull whisky, but the truth is that the spirit made here is of remarkable quality, and when it gets into the right cask the results are magical.
