  1. riekio scored this whisky 89 points Expert Senior

    This tasted like a well aged bourbon to me. I think whenever gave me the sample gave me the wrong one as I got almost no sherry notes

      Wonderful sweetness with lots of dark ripe fruit, leather and pastry notes.

      The best drop I've ever tasted. Wonderful fruit component, chocolate, leather, ripe fruits. Wonderfully oily creamy and complex

  4. SimonOHA scored this whisky 97 points Expert Senior

    The first words that came to me were the right ones: it's magnificent. Fully deserved reputation even if we suspect that so many people can not be wrong. An absolute pleasure taken with every sip.
    • Nose
      Nose concentrated on fig, plum, black grapes. Molasses. Superb caramelized leather with rubber. Wave coconut bark in the middle of various noble wood species. Thick and sweet soy sauce. Licorice gum. Shea butter appears with aeration and also a meaty side.
    • Taste
      In the mouth it's good. A burger of leather and different woods. Molasses elixir in rubber cup and licorice. Syrup of figs, dates, raisins. Rum baba with candied fruits. Fresh juice of dried apricot.
    • Finish
      Finish on a cocoa cream with rum. Espresso, cinnamon.

  6. sagara-kun scored this whisky 95 points Connoisseur

    Always so fantastic!
    Intense sherry in all its glory.

    A real slap in the face.

    The empty glass smells of an intense molasses which sums up the dram nicely.
    • Nose
      95 95
      What first shocks about this Glengoyne is the intensity! We have here an extraordinary concentration of aromas that I would almost compare to a Ristretto in its category.

      We start with figs, dates, currants, accompanied by the smell of blackberry jam cooked in its copper pot.

      We continue with aromas of old demerara, molasses. Then beef jerky, with a very light bacon, dark chocolate, intense coffee, and good balsamic vinegar from Modena.

      To finish, a little cigar, mixed with a noble woody note.
    • Taste
      96 96
      In the mouth we continue in the intensity of the nose.
      Mixture: Balsamic vinegar, dates, figs, coffee, molasses, brown sugar, blackberry and black cherry jam, oily leather, wood, tobacco, cigar, pepper, cinnamon, cloves.

      It swirls in the mouth. Superb!
    • Finish
      95 95
      Long and slightly smoky finish.
      Leather, wood, jammy fruit, tobacco, Grisons meat, barbecue, and always that superb aged balsamic vinegar.

    Best Glengoyne I've had so far after 20 year's of whisky tasting

  9. Kalamadei scored this whisky 95 points Expert Senior

    tasting lineup
    tobermory 32 green
    benrinnes 1982 tb
    Glengone 1972

    Goyne is winning that lineup by miles.
    Old style sherry- yeah you can miss old cellar type of sherry, but it is so mouthcoating, fruity as you would eat jam from back fruits.
    The greates sherry nose of my life for sure. (2021)
    Finish is very long.
    95 from me.

    But 95 for palate & finish average.
    Note
    The Macallan 1952 probably would have come 2nd if the nose had scored similar to the palate and finish, it would be unfair to push it any further down the pecking order and it was, along with the Glen Cawdor 1964 the only whisky I gave a 96p for the palate. It is where it is because the nose let it down and had a burnt off note I did not like but the taste was lovely.

  11. Vmarcinv scored this whisky 97 points Expert Senior

    Nose- absolutely phenomenal, great sherry cask, sweet raisins, ripe cherries, cherry liqueur, dried apricots, great nose after time sweet tobacco appears
    Taste - In the blink of an eye, it fills the mouth, very oily, deep sweetness of figs and raisins in honey, meaty, subtle skin notes, light bitterness (on the plus side) perfectly turns into a more wooden profile with a clearly fitted sherry barrel.
    Finish - lasting, dry, slightly spicy, leathery turns into a sweetness lasting with a slight hint of sweet tobacco, raisins, plums, figs, apricots - all ripe to the limit remains with you until the end.
    Best whisky EVER for me, absolute top 97 ❤

  12. lincolnimp scored this whisky 95 points Connoisseur

    Whisky like this does not come along very often, manyy aged sherry monsters have too much wood influence, this is premier league cask stuff.
    This is as good as the 1966 Signatory SV cask 134 but I would give the nod to this one, actually not sure both are great
    • Nose
      96 96
      At first there is a very strong blackberry/blueberry note like a deep filled fruit pie.
      In with the fruit there is something medicinal with peat fumes and hints of furniture polish.
      Ribena on steroids probably describes this.
      Like some of the very best old sherried whiskies but with an extra dimension.
      Superb nose
    • Taste
      95 95
      Thick & syrupy with bucketful's of dark fruits, hints of peat.
      very jammy indeed so the fruit is blackcurrant, blackberry but with hints of redberry/cranberry overlaying it.
      Hints of mulled wine spice.
      Lovely, I am struggling for superlatives here
    • Finish
      94 94
      The finish is good length, remaining this, syrupy and fruity with a zesty twang on the tail and your palate and tongue are felling refreshed.

      With water, the palate is a little thinner but a spice bomb has been released and once again that extra little ingredient ,that is medicinal that lifts this from excellent to superb

    • Nose
      92 92
      Complex & interesting
      In addition to notes of dry sherry, you will find resinous wood, sweet corn (cotton candy), dark chocolate, leather, plum must, balsamic vinegar and a great blend of spices.
    • Taste
      94 94
      Full body.
      Can be enjoyed undiluted - but I added a few drops of water - that makes it milder without losing the aromas.
      Very round & balanced - no burning (only a pleasant tingling sensation can be felt) - no unpleasant wood notes. The nose reflects the flavors on the tongue.
    • Finish
      92 92
      Long, sweet, mild and balanced - with red grapes, wood and forest honey.

    Finally, I was able to try this "legendary" whisky. The rumors were only confirmed. A complete whisky, great fragrance, fruity sweetness on the tongue with a great finish. It’s a pity that such whiskys are so hard to find and buy in normal money now...

    Boah ey ... that was one of the best whisky I've ever drunk.
    • Nose
      Colour:
      Dark amber

      Nose:
      Lick my Ars.h. Ultimate. An insanely oily nose.
      Wet tobacco, olive oil, a flag of smoke and sweetened rum raisins shoot me first. Hammer. The aromas are pressed in properly. It has something of a rum. Preserved, dark cherries float in the glass. Plus plum liqueur, dark sweetened berries and greased leather. A cooling mint catches on from the background.
      With a little time in the glass, herbs get through a little more. Then neatly dried apricots with chocolate sauce. What makes me very happy is that it is not an oak board!
    • Taste
      Spicy, mega oily full kick. With very little bitterness. Madness after these years. Also immediately brown sugar and rum raisins in the taste. A few chilli threads above. And immediately the warm chocolate sauce and sweet figs again. In terms of taste, the flag smoke goes out of the smell, more towards roasted aromas. Toast. The second sip I find something like prospan cough syrup. Because it becomes somewhat plant-based and also slightly medicinal. Also gets a little drier without losing the oily. More "juicy" dried fruit.
    • Finish
      Rather long. Spicy and always very oily. The sugar sweetness is not lost. The chocolate is now more towards dark chocolate.

    • Nose
      Fragrant and rich sherry nose. Candied fruits, prunes, figs, precious wood, tobacco and some coconuts. And more.
    • Taste
      Red fruits, dried fruits, leather, spices and the coconut again.
    • Finish

    This is one of the greatest sherry whiskys I've tasted so far.

    Enormously multi-layered, intense and dense in the grandiose nose, in the mouth sweet, full, luscious. Not at all overdone or sticky, everything fits. Enormously long, balanced and expressive finish.
    Great class.
    • Nose
      94 94
      Dark cherries, plums, best fruity sherry, sweet. Waxy oak, orange marmalade, ripe mango, lots of honey, heavy tropical flowers, a little bourbon vanilla and cardamom. Dark chocolate. Floor wax. Constantly changing. Enormously deep and wonderfully expressive. Great nose.
    • Taste
      93 93
      Sweet, full, lush, velvety and wonderfully exotic fruity. Fine fruity sherry, honey, mango and again the heavy flowers, orange marmalade. Star fruit.
    • Finish
      94 94
      The aroma continues: here too, wonderfully exotic fruity and honey-king. Very harmonious, nice long, polished and round. Nothing bothers.

    A big boy sherried whisky, but considering its status and price, I was a bit surprised that it is not more complex. Very, very good no doubt with superb balance, but I was hoping for old rancio or old books and did not find them in this one. A straightforward great sherry bomb.

    http://kaypingers-whiskyblog.de/frontend/fullarticle.php?id=261 Color: Amontillado / Madeira Sherry Nose: Immediately starts a wave of flavor and leaves hardly time to write; dry sherry, currants, apricots, tobacco, maggie seasoning, balsamic, leather, straw, coffee beans and aromas of coffee cream. Class! Taste: Heavy diet with notes of old sherry casks, humidor, red cherries and berries, elderberry, rum punch, leather, wood, furniture stain, wooden boards, orange peel and a handful of herbs. Finish: Long - but also quite tart. Jam, wood, blueberries, elderberry, some honey and dark chocolate. 92 points (nose: 94 / taste: 92 / finish: 90)

    An excellent scotch - the right thing for a cold winter day - worth every penny!
    • Nose
      Almost everything has been said already but it's indeed very intense, dried fruits, sweet raisins, meaty, chocolate, pipe tobacco, hints of oak, toffee, coffee and so on - it's neverending
    • Taste
      Wow, what a sticky sweet thing this is - still punchy and powerful but creamy and mellow at the same time. Nice dried fruits, plums, cloves, gingerbread, chocolate, cinnamon, rum and sherry - Superb!

      With water it gets more of citrus fruits, cooked oranges, milk chocolate and much more.
    • Finish
      Long and warm, still sweet and fruity - Great!

    Glengoyne 09/1972 - 09/2012 Mos Diamond 70 cl 55.5% vol. Sherry Hogshead MOS 12044 Bottle No. 203/254 Is this because Mos? It was preeminent security, Glengoyne after a long time 1972! Color: It seems to be too heavy! Nose: Glengoyne 's sticky appearance as if drinking thick cocoa while eating plum - changing rice cake Attach: like sweet enough of salt in frying buns, strong enough of sweetness Body: The powerfulness of the straw rape full of truly full of sense of truth.The cotton feeling is full body of tolerable tolerance. Taste: Glengoyne っ ぽ さ with exquisitely intertwined every nuts and sweet cream! Let's coat plenty of butter and jam in the bread.Will somehow the southern Gish of the soba near the station in the Tokyo metropolitan area is also acceptable for West Japan? The sweetness of the last bite that the sugar put in the tea was not melted.The pushy throwing chocolate syrup blatantly to the cream puff is also tolerable if it is Glengoyne.The slight gravel is also visible and it is Munmun type but entertaining It is a cup full of finish. Strawberry-based! Munmun system! Shepherd system! Even if it pushes as much, it is drinking worthy Finish which keeps consistency well with cool cocoa and Ogi shepherd! It is also nice to have a faint Earl Gray returning, is it like a cup of high marks? Sometimes, Glengoyne is also nice. https://whisky2010.usukeba.com/u/whisky2010/1fyharsht8j976

    Wooooooooooooooow grand nose and dito taste fantastic sherrybomb but much more than that! One of the best whiskies I have ever tasted! Again a fantastic selection

    What a fantastic whisky. This makes me all emotional. If you loved sherried whisky, than this is probably the nec ultra plus for you. 300 EUR is a lot of money, you say? True. But look for an official 40 year old and you will need to fill out more than one lottery form. And chances are, it will not be anywhere near this one. Maybe Santa will bring it, if you have been good.
    • Nose
      I was expecting a sherry bomb and that is what it turned out to be. What a Grand Nose. Deep sherry, that is how I describe it. Prunes, apricots, rhubarb marmalade. But all so wonderfully stewed, full and luscious, without any off-note. No sulphur, no tannins. Hints of chocolate. Candid sugar and cinnamon. Soft, sweet, sultry, sumptuous.
    • Taste
      It is soft on the palate, creamy, almost syrupy. OMG! Brown banana, dark honey, prunes, figs, vanilla, caramelized apple, grilled pineapple, fresh rhubarb, walnuts and a drop of balsamic. Nice woodspices. Ginger and nutmeg. What a great cask! Add water? You must be joking. I think not.
    • Finish
      The bittersweet finish allows me to enjoy this dram for another handful of minutes.

    In the past I had some very good older Glengoyne, but this one is the best I´ve ever tasted, a real beauty!

  53. Falnor scored this whisky 94 points Connoisseur

    If you don't like old sherry, stay away because this whisky doesn't come cheap. However a 40-year old sweet sherry like this can make me smile.
    • Nose
      Ahhh, just whisky perfume...
      So sweet, so full. The alcohol may bring a lot of scent in the air, in the nose nothing harsh, only beautiful aroma's. A lot of sherry, so expect fruity and chocolate notes. Prunes, apricot jam. No dark chocolate, no leathery hints. It's all very delicate. In the end also some cashewnuts.
    • Taste
      Very fresh, not tired at all. The whisky is like thick syrup. No water required, nor bothered to even try. And the taste? Well, fruits like appels, ripe banana, jam, rich honey. Toffee and vanilla. The wood is not dry, spices like nutmeg, ginger, cinnamon. Tea leaves. Also there are walnuts of course. 
    • Finish
      Gentle, more than i would imagine. Because 55,5% on sherry could give a heavy kick, but it stays warm and elegant. Long finish, lots of taste.

  54. SilentStill scored this whisky 92 points Expert Senior

    Without question one of my best Glengoyne so far. Unusually long finish and already on the palate a real highlight. After some time again a MoS, who could really convince me.
