Whisky Reviews for Glengoyne 1997 MoS

3 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 84.70 points

  1. markjedi1 scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    It surprises me once again how these independent
    Glengoyne easily outshine the official offrings (no offense, Glengoyne). Around 75 EUR.
    • Nose
      The nose is prickly and somewhat dirty. Loads of
      fruit, but from a basket that also contains a few oranges that are way overdue.
      Spicy as well. I am thinking green garden herbs, thyme in the lead. Bittersweet, actually. Toffee and vanilla. Yellow flowers too. This is
      nice. Patience makes the dirtiness (which is a good thing)
      fade a bit and makes this Glengoyne a dark sweet, if you know what I mean.
    • Taste
      The attack is powerful with quite some woodspice.
      Think white pepper, ginger (maybe candied) before the fruit rears its head. Bittersweet again. Loads of grapefruit, nice oak. Then turns a bit softer with some Brown sugar and more sweet fruit and
      some marzipan. Water? No need.
    • Finish
      The medium long and honeysweet finish allow the spices
      the final word.

    A great Glengoyne that takes time in the glass. Anyone who likes bitter-sweet fruit paired with a harmonious, peppery-spicy flavor will be delighted here. I like the interaction here very much. Needs some water and a lot of time in the glass.
