Whisky Reviews for Glengoyne 1992 Glenguin Shiraz

- 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!
Sherry wood, spices, ginger, honeydew
Oily, starch, some greenish things and vegetables, also hints of pork
Medium short, warm, something brackish
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.
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.
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.
- 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.
Immediate wine finish influence which the bright orange colour confirms. Floral and fruity. Green oak. Milk chocolate. Seems young.
Sweet and smooth but with a grippy feel in the back.Cadbury raisin fruit bar.
Shortwith a bitter edge
- blind tasting
chocolate, floral - roses, nuts, honey, some raisins, spices - nutmeg and forest fruits
orange, strawberries, chocolate, some mint and plums
spices - pepper, orange, fudge and some coffee
- Great whisky.
Toffee, blueberry, cherry, orange, cranberry, mocha and malt. Little whiffs of spice like mint and laurel. With water eventually some apricot and banana.
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.
Sticky toffee, cherry, blueberry, mocha, raisin, liquorice, nutmeg and a whiff of smoke.
