  1. hawk31 scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    Very balanced and full. Great finish, this malt would be amazing at cask strength! Clean wine cask with no sulfur or off-flavors.

    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
      Sherry wood, spices, ginger, honeydew
    • Taste
      Oily, starch, some greenish things and vegetables, also hints of pork
    • Finish
      Medium short, warm, something brackish

  8. Berrysaki scored this whisky 87 points Expert Junior

    • 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.

  11. Rustamich did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    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.
    • 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

    • Taste

  13. KayMeertens scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

    Great whisky.
    • Nose
      Toffee, blueberry, cherry, orange, cranberry, mocha and malt. Little whiffs of spice like mint and laurel. With water eventually some apricot and banana.
    • Taste
      Toffee, blueberry, bramble, mocha, dark cherry. A lot of spice like nutmeg and pepper. A tad of eucalyptus and liquorice, and with water a little maltiness.
    • Finish
      Sticky toffee, cherry, blueberry, mocha, raisin, liquorice, nutmeg and a whiff of smoke.

    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
