  1. lincolnimp scored this whisky 90 points Connoisseur

    Good stuff, lively and fresh as it smacks your palate about.
    • Nose
      Its one of them orange and honeycomb combinations - great.

      Stewed fruits, figs, plum with hints of mango and then a little shoe polish. Finally a little cough candy.
    • Taste
      Whoa, powerful but creamy with it with quite a lot of candied fruit and barley sugar sweetness, A little woody bitterness creeps in from the wood but then there is a little caramel, salt and something spicy.
    • Finish
      Quite long with a spicy orangey finish.

    sergeColour: deep gold. Nose: punchy, starting with a profile that’s quite different
    from the 1972s’ and 1973s’. There’s more oak, more vanilla and more spices but
    not only that, the fruitiness is also less citrusy and more on gooseberries and
    strawberries, maybe even cranberries. There are also more floral notes (lily of
    the valley, peonies) and something rather oriental (rosewater, Turkish
    delights). With water: ermlmd… it became strange, kind of cheesy. Fermenting
    fruits, dirty/mouldy wood. Doesn’t take water too well I must say, although
    these smells tend to vanish but not completely. Mouth (neat): very rich, very
    creamy, very fruity and even sugary and quite oaky. Obvious notes of
    crystallised ginger and lemon balm, white pepper upfront (comes usually later)
    and tons of orange marmalade. Unusually invading for an unsherried Glengoyne.
    With water: same comments, there’s much more oak and spices than in the 1972s
    but it all works well – provided you like spices, pepper and cloves first.
    Finish: long, remaining creamy. Lemon zests and nutmeg in the aftertaste.
    Comments: I guess the cask was very active, or this one’s been re-racked into
    first fill bourbon. Unexpectedly ‘modern’.

      Superb fruity, exotic touch; roundness, vanilla
