    Considering Serge'sw notes, I expected more... Well, it is à brilliant Stuff of course, but I was expecting an explosion, which did not come be fore the finish.

    Tasted on a sample 

    Still thèse prunes, apricot,...Tipical glengoyne

    whiskyfun:

    Glengoyne 15 yo 1989/2004 (55.8%, OB for Corman-Collins, Belgium, cask #1219, 264 bottles)  Colour: dark amber. Nose: yeah. Old armagnac, prunes, raisins, earth, liquorice, precious woods, soy sauce, pipe tobacco… There’s nothing not to like. Superb (yes we’re keeping this short). With water: saltpetre, brake pads, concrete, pencil lead, old magazines and books… I’m stunned. Mouth (neat): amazingly rich, armagnacqy, prune-y, raisiny, chocolaty, old-style, extremely old-Speyside-y… It doesn’t get much better than this, if you ask me. With water: tinier herbal notes, the usual walnuts, paraffin, plasticine, French beans, Jerusalem artichokes, Jamaican rum… What’s the trick? Finish: endless, rich, and yet dry and straight… Exceptional leathery and tobacco-ish notes. Comments: to think that I needed twelve years before I tried this magnificent sherried Glengoyne! I may rebrand this website ‘whiskysnail.com’. SGP:472 - 92 points.
