    This limited edition release with an out turn of just 697 bottles is unchill
    filtered. It was distilled on 24th October 1985, and matured in a refill Sherry
    cask. It offers honey, herbs and sweet apples on the nose, and is quite rich and
    viscous on the palate. There are flavours of fudge, mashed banana and Liquorice
    Allsorts. The finish is extremely long, with the sweet notes holding right to
    the end.

    sergeColour: gold. Nose: hot, smoky, powerful and a little spirity at first nosing.
    Lots of salted caramel, sweet wine and hot butter, getting a little rubbery and
    slightly feinty. Whiffs of cold smoke, flintstone. Keeps developing on apple pie
    and sweet cider and gets finally quite fruity, with some nice notes of overripe
    melons and pears… And oh, also some playful notes of dried herbs, thyme, bay
    leaf, sage… Gets more and more complex, even if not extremely bold. Funny: the
    smoke might make you think it’s an Islayer at first nosing. Mouth: sweet but
    rather hot and powerful attack, with both some mint and liquorice and something
    unusually bitter and herbal at the same time (lavender, Swiss herbal candies).
    Goes on with some bold notes of dried oranges, marmalade, hot brownies, apricot
    liqueur. More and more hot pastries, praline, sugared whipped cream. Marzipan. A
    whole pastry shop! The finish is rather long, on almond milk and fudge, maybe
    just a tad too tannic and bitter. Water doesn’t really improve it, and makes it
    even a little bitterer. Anyway, another excellent Glengoyne, even if not one of
    the very, very best ones in my opinion.
