Whisky Reviews for Glengoyne 1998
8 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 89.16 points
- Wow the color is heavy .. Almost as dark as Cola :-) Hammer Whisky with fierce aromas .. Pity only 1 sample of Mikee (THANK YOU)
- Classic sherry cask profile, a perfect example of the style.
Classic sherry bomb. Dried dark fruits, leather, tobacco, raisins in liquor (mon cheri). Blood oranges, chocolate, toffee. Very inviting.
Dark sherry with chocolate, coffee, and all kind of red fruits - prunes, raisins, cherries, blackcurrant.
Long, on chocolate and coffee notes.
- Just some impressions from a little tasting...
Overall very nice!
And you get the Glengoyne-character as well - nicely matured.
I wonder how this one would be with maybe 18 or 20 years ...Tasting without water.
At first the nose may be a little alcoholic, but very soon it develops.
Nice oranges and prunes as well as cherries and raisins come from the fruit-direction.
From the beginning there is a beautiful Sherry-cask interchanging with all the flavors.
After a while it all melanges together with chocolate, toffee-biscuits, spices from the wood, real espresso, leather and dried fruits - very good Sherry-nose with tartness and well-balanced, dark sweetness. Some fine vanilla plays through the components from time to time. It gets really aromatic.
The taste is beautiful as well: Citrus and fruits like cherries and plums; fire from the alcohol but it comes with the spices from the beginning.
Then chocolate, coffee and wood arise.
The finish is quite long. Taste lasts for hours.
Here you got a real Sherry-cask, dark chocolate, espresso powder, plums, leather and some beautiful tartness from the wood.
Later there come many dried figs.
When I smoked a cigarette afterwards, after the first puff there were black olives ...
- Great stuff and a real Glengoyne !!!
Very complex: all flavors are linked, but clear; youthful freshness, depth, drinkability, surprising … All flavors are recognizable from nosing to tasting until to the finish.
Despite the high alcohol content, we prefer the undiluted pleasure! Very little nips make this easily possible and so reveal all the wealth of this beautifully balanced and rich single malt!

All flavors from the nosing can again be found in the taste!
Joined by hints of orange, sweet and sour fruit components, the most pleasant fine Sherry cask touch, dark chocolate, hints of vanilla, plums, fruit in rum (cherries) …
with some water more apples, Sherry, sweetness, sourness , freshness of fruits ...
Citrus sweetness and acidity, tart apples, pepper, spice, barrel notes, hair tonic (Birkin), tobacco, dark fruit, dark chocolate, espresso, vanilla, apple, cherries, leather, sweet wood, nuts, caramel, pleasant light bitterness, becoming dry … -

- Overall, a good whisky
Plum jam with alcohol note
Oranges, cocoa and coffee
Cherries and banana
soft onset, roasted flavors with fruit, coffee, and wood ... very good ... but gets bitter in the throat behind
the bitterness disturbs here
medium and salty with wood and a bit bitter
- A surprising color for a 14-year old whisky: deep, dark reddish brown. Citrus notes on the nose first. Oranges. In addition there are cocoa notes and coffee as well as banana. This diversity continues in the mouth. Here is the memory of Madeira wine. Many dark notes: chocolate, toffee, coffee and then sweet fruits. The finish is short and strong and leaves coffee and caramel behind.
In this whisky, the high alcohol content does not interfere. The many flavors are in perfect interaction and the alcohol plays along and does not dominate the whisky. A very nice whisky, which makes a lot of fun.
