Color
Burnished
Nose

Sherry wood, spices, ginger, honeydew

Taste

Oily, starch, some greenish things and vegetables, also hints of pork

Finish

Medium short, warm, something brackish

Comments

Rather strange - if all Shiraz Casks were like this I would not buy any - the price of such a bottle is anyways totally inappropriate - no thanks!

Nose

Very light fruity winey nose on top of a light oaky whisky. I have the whisky in the glass for about 30 mins now but the nose stays rather closed.

Taste

Wow...compared to the nose, the tastes immediately kicks in. Oak, vanilla, cherries, white grapes, some banana, mouthcoating, Really nice in balance with the alcohol.

Finish

medium long to long finish where Oak en sweet white grapes stay in your mouth for a long time.

The latest release from Stirlingshire?s Glengoyne distillery is a 16-year-old single malt whisky which has been matured in casks previously filled with Shiraz wine from Australia?s Hunter Valley. The casks have been supplied by Lord Robin Tedder, third baron of Glenguin, who established his winery on the Glenguin Estate in 1988. Glenguin is the original name of Glengoyne distillery, and the first baron, Lord Arthur William Tedder, adopted the title after a distinguished Second World War career because his father had served as excise officer at the distillery from 1889 to 1893. To celebrate 100 years since the distillery?s name changed to its present form, and to commemorate the Tedder connection, 20 empty Glenguin Shiraz casks were filled with 16-year-old Glengoyne last autumn, and ten were finally selected for bottling. Lively fruit and spices on the nose, with background brittle toffee. Water emphasises fresh fruit and gives a hint of cocoa. Mouth-coating, with a palate of citrus fruit, spice, vanilla fudge and honey. The finish is medium to long, spicy, fruity and with a final echo of the cocoa found on the diluted nose 3,800 individually numbered bottles.

Color
Pale gold
Nose

Immediate wine finish influence which the bright orange colour confirms. Floral and fruity. Green oak. Milk chocolate. Seems young.

Taste

Sweet and smooth but with a grippy feel in the back.Cadbury raisin fruit bar.

Finish

Shortwith a bitter edge

Comments

A young whisky revamped by a wine finish. Balance is not here. Water brings out spices. But the malty profile is overwhelmed. I am not convinced.

This 16 year old was finished in casks from the Glenguin estate in Australia`s
Hunter Valley. Lord Robin Tedder established the winery in 1988, Glenguin was
actually the original name for the Glengoyne distillery. The first baron of
Glenguin took the name because his father was an excise officer at the
distillery in the late 19th century
