  4. p4blo scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    These single cask Glengoynes almost never disappoint, another good example of a nice youngster.
    • Nose
      Light sherry notes with fudge, caramel, some milk chocolate and raisins. Notes of marzipan.
    • Taste
      Very rich with notes of caramel, bread, raisins, prunes. Lots of aromatic spices with cloves and cinnamon headlining. Applie pie.
    • Finish
      Medium length, some spicy tones and red fruit sweetness.

  5. St. Pauli scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    Still a very good bottling, mind you. The finish is just too bad, otherwise it would have been a 88-89 points whisky.
    • Nose
      A beefy sherry nose, to be short. There is sulphur (burnt matches, beef stock), but it doesn't really blow the vanilla/sawdust of the oak away. Then, it's quite pleasant on dark fruits (brambles, berries, raspberry) and Dutch appelstroop. Quite jammy, with a minty freshness. Adding water leads to a more pronounced earthiness, and a larger influence of the beefy smells. 
    • Taste
      Adding water is essential. Then it's pleasant, fruity with sultanas, but also the dark fruits and Dutch appelstroop. Further, there are soft spices (clove), oloroso sherry, and mint. 
    • Finish
      This is where it starts to get a little bitter and woody. The spices give way to quite some tannins, and they're not counterbalanced by the sweet, savoury or sour notes. The fruit is there, but in the background.

    Some will love this, I do not but its ok for the sherry heads and certainly nothing particularly wrong with it, just not my bag.
    • Nose
      Pleasant, smoked meats, a touch of orange, vanilla, full bodied red wine, pale cream sherry and warm chocolate cake.

      The vanilla seems to grow with time
    • Taste
      Sweet, with some woody bitterness creeping in, quite thick on the palate reminds me of black forest gateaux taste wise on black cherry and raspberry
    • Finish
      Medium length with the a little drying bitterness.

    powerful stuff over here.
    • Nose
      very soft, red apples and caramel are the most promiment. there is some vanilla and honey too. quite musty. i could be wrong but sometimes it seems like there is something farmy. like cow stable. or horses if you want. coffee powder most definetly. chocolate. not much in the fruit department. with water: gets a little brandy-ish, slightly flowery and some mushrooms plus herbs..
    • Taste
      caramel and walnuts. very thick and sirupy. not much bitterness but a little sour, which is not really bad tbh. cinnamon and red apples in the development. and again the caramel, this time quite overpowering. some kind of minty honey right before the finish. there is not much more happening, but it's intense.
    • Finish
      long and powerful. cinnamon,  kinda peppery , with some vanilla but above all the caramel dominates again.
