  1. peatbogger scored this whisky 77 points Specialist

    The last dram from a bottle that has been open for well over a year. Time has done it good. I like it better than at first pour. Muted nose, fair body and a nice but too short nutty finish.
    • Nose
      76 76
      Grain, grass, cereal, lemon, pear.
      All very light. Sweet and a little zesty.
      Alc has become more integrated with time, hardly noticable now.
    • Taste
      77 77
      Neutral mothfeel.
      Sweet, glazed yellow fruit.
      A little warmth, but extremely gentle.
      Traces of nuts.
    • Finish
      79 79
      Short of medium lenght.
      Stays on the yellow fruit theme.
      Dry walnuts at the very end.

  3. Casketje scored this whisky 84 points Expert Junior

    This was a nice surprise! The great Glengoyne distillate actually matures nicely in ex-bourbon. I especially liked the long chocolate-y finish, wasn't expecting that from a 10 year old. Definitely worth the money.

  4. Cask1988 did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    Maybe my batch is little different from the others downhere but I think this is a well deserving dram. It does what it should and in it’s price/quality range (entry level, core range OB) it is, at least for me, one of the better drams out there.
    • Nose
      A very fresh, fruity nose. A little grassy as well. Sweet and accessible. There are bourbon as well as sherry cask influences. I notice a hint of european oak intensity in the sherry part of this whisky. It’s not a big part, but it’s there which is nice. (The higher the age, the bigger the percentage of European oak casks used, and from 21yo and up it’s 100% EU oak at GlenGoyne). Friendly thanks to the low abv by quite flavorful as well.
    • Taste
      Thin body. But what can you expect with a 10yo at 40%. It’s sweet and sour. Fruits like pineapple, apple, pears. Slight herbal note.
    • Finish
      The finish is actually quite impressive for what one can expect! Rather full bodied finish. Medium length. Spicy notes and some sherry cask influences. A little red fruits and a hint of sultana’s. Pleasant finish.

      It’s neither a complex whisky, nor one to remember for years to come but it is good at what it does. Perfect to share at a family dinner, a night with friends or as a quick&easy dram.

    Can’t say I’d had too much exposure to Glengoyne before visiting the distillery in 2017 [blog]. I know the distillery has many loyal fans, so I thought I’d revisit it.

    C: A very friendly nose with pleasingly cake-y sugars that trickle over the sweet spot.

  9. ColdAesthetics scored this whisky 83 points Connoisseur

    For a 10s really a very stable and pleasant malt that just is not very flat like many, you can play his 20-30 seconds in the mouth with him without boredom.
    • Nose
      Soft honey, green apple, some lemon, pear, grass, light cereals, shortbread, very light and sweetish, but not too boring, toffee, some foliage
    • Taste
      Beautifully balanced, fresh red apple, caramelized (yellow) fruits, lychee, pear, some sweet malt, lemon drops, some hazelnut, popcorn, hint of oak, cereals, sweet grasses
    • Finish
      Short to medium long, apple peel, pear with seeds, sweet malt, a little hay, wild honey

  10. Egge scored this whisky 76 points Expert Junior

    • Nose
      77 77
      Wet grass, pear, a little flowery, rather restrained.
    • Taste
      76 76
      The first thing you notice is the mouthfeel: like drinking from a water bottle. Very gentle, a restrained sweetness, maybe vanilla? A little nut.
    • Finish
      76 76
      In short, barely there ... a little oak and ginger. Sweet, I do not taste any more.
