Color

Nose

Classic sherry bomb. Dried dark fruits, leather, tobacco, raisins in liquor (mon cheri). Blood oranges, chocolate, toffee. Very inviting.

Taste

Dark sherry with chocolate, coffee, and all kind of red fruits - prunes, raisins, cherries, blackcurrant.

Finish

Long, on chocolate and coffee notes.

Comments

Classic sherry cask profile, a perfect example of the style.

Nose

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.

Taste

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.

Finish

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 ...

Comments

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.

Nose
Apples, cherries, red wine, cherry jam, cocoa powder, toffee, tobacco, espresso powder, caramel, dried fried onions, basil (dried), Sherry (fine), Sherry cask, furniture polish, old oak desk, menthol oils, hair tonic (Birkin); 
freshly processed natural wood appears with a little water ...
Taste
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 ...
Finish

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 … - 

the taste remains very long !!!
Comments

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!

Eine überraschende Farbe für einen 14-jährigen Whisky: tief dunkles, rötliches Braun. In der Nase zunächst Zitrusnoten. Orangen. Hinzu kommen noch Kakaonoten und Kaffee sowie Banane. Diese Vielfalt setzt sich im Mund fort. Hier ist zunächst die Erinnerung an Madeirawein. Viele dunkle Noten: Schokolade, Toffee, Kaffee und dann auch noch süße Früchte. Der Abgang ist kurz und kräftig und lässt Kaffee und Karamell zurück.


Bei diesem Whisky wirkt sich der hohe Alkoholanteil nicht störend aus. Die vielen Aromen sind in einem perfekten Zusammenspiel und der Alkohol spielt mit und dominiert den Whisky nicht. Ein sehr schöner Whisky, der viel Spass macht.
