    Nose: Lacquer, wax, sherry, some lemon, oranges, bananas
    Taste: From the first sip a very pleasant sweetness is felt - oranges, honey, milk chocolate
    Rating: 88 | 100. Quite long finish with a tangerine flavor. Pleasant Glengoyne without a doubt.

  5. p4blo scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    Very nice. Needs some time to open up, but it's well worth the wait.
    • Nose
      Flowery, with a pronounced fruity side - oranges, bananas, peach, mango. Tons of honey, chocolate, Christmas cake. Also some mushrooms, soil.
    • Taste
      Sweet, round, nicely balanced. Honey, toffee, milk chocolate and coffee beans dominate, but there is a bice fruitiness to it too.
    • Finish
      Rather dry, bitterish, on coffee and spices.

  6. Segens scored this whisky 90 points Connoisseur

    a very complex and interesting dram. 
    • Nose
      Fruity and fresh: oranges, raisins also caramel, honey and a bit of oak.
    • Taste
      Very sweet and after a few seconds so much honey it is like having pure honey in your mouth. Incredible! 
    • Finish
      Incredibly long finish very sweat and pure honey

    Surprisingly good
    Glengoyne, that most likely be an absolute stunner if it had been bottled at
    cask strength.
    • Nose
      The rich nose offers
      toffee apples, fudge and a whole rack of herbs. Green garden herbs like thyme
      and parsley. Then some nougat with loads of nuts. Hints of chocolate with
      honey. Squashed banana with brown sugar. Brownies! Evolves towards red berries
      and strawberries. Very fine and discrete hint of wood smoke. Creamy nose, very
    • Taste
      On the palate it is
      very sweet and full. Licorice allsorts. A bit of espresso. Mildly drying effect
      from the sherry.
    • Finish
      The finish is long
      and spicy and ends honeysweet.
