- Very classic Glengoyne - old school!
Sherry wood, nutty, toasted bread, toffee, nutmeg, hints of citrus fruits, honeydew, rather typical Glengoyne profile, very good
Punchy, very oily, creamy, spices, old sherry wood, dark chocolate, caramel, good sweetness - great
Long, burning, zesty
- one of the most satisfying whiskies that I have tried entering my top 5 so far
extremely aromatic and exotic,myrrh, prunes, raisins,entering a library full of old leather books,some undefined and nearly out of this world oriental herbs, ancient monastery's beeswax candles,mango chutney, bananas flambe,polished antique furniture, aromatic pu-erh tea cake
extremely sweet and complex ,exotic fruit jams seasoned with oriental herbs and myrrh oil , ripe mangos, pink grapefruits, melons, tangerine skin, orange flavoured chocolate pie, fruity pu-erh tea,wax polished first class leather
very long ,of huge complexity, and with wonderfull exotic fruits flavours giving layers and layers of extra complexity to an oriental sherry profile
