  1. recursiewhisky scored this whisky 93 points Expert Senior

    This is not whisky for the "faint hearted" just to say it. This is an explosion of powerful, spicy and dry aromas that will make your mouth contract like an old and rich Grand Cru Burgundy. Intense and overwhelming but very fascinating!

    • Nose
      Rich, deep, layered, intense and complex whisky with hints of grape skin, earthy notes, grape seeds, nutmeg grapes, spicy oaks, tannins, plums, pure clauds, mirabelles, pear candies, calvados, baked apples, stewed stone fruits, leather, rosewood, antiques, brioche, toasted bread, stale cellar, raisins, dates, dried figs, overripe banana, spices and stimulating alcohol.
    • Taste
      Intense, rich, full, layered, mouth filling and complex whisky with notes of dried stone fruits, raisins, dates, figs, prunes, cinnamon, ginger, ginger syrup, brown sugar, bitter and dry tannin, oak, antique, rosewood, cigars, rich tobacco, molasses, chocolate, sulfur, leather, even more oak and spices. Very dry mouthfeel!
    • Finish
      A long and dry aftertaste with notes of dried tropical fruits, stone fruit compote, marmite, many oaks and bitter tannins.

    Deep and complex quality stuff. Had it side by side with bourbon cask 1546 and a couple of Japanese quality drams. A 28 years old Karuizawa 1984, cask 7914 among others. This Glengoyne is right up there when it comes to quality. I want it all and i want it now!

    • Nose
      Spicy sherry, raisin and dates, overripe banana. Some heavy alcohols in there.
    • Taste
      Again, dark dried fruits, raisins, figs, dates and prunes, cinnamon and ginger bread. There is some dark rum and molasses hints in it as well.
    • Finish
      Long, warm and spicy with christmas cake and pickled dark fruits in rum syrup.
