    There’s no age statement on the bottle or tube, but you can find out the malts contained were distilled in 1998 and 2002, making it a roughly 11 year-old whisky as it was bottled in 2013. And what a dram! Rich, clean, intense, sweet-dry sherry stale, highly dilutable with water too.

    I was lucky enough to visit Glengoyne distillery late in August 2013. The beauty of rural scenery surrounding the place as well as whisky per se have settled in my heart for good. This is where I bought this marvellous Glengoyne. I tried it beforehand having been granted by a kind staff member on the spot and clearly just could not resist temptation buying it. Of course I had bought it. Back home I shared the bottle amongst my fellows at our local whisky club. Everybody was captured and absolutely conquered by sublime quality of it. So I have no Teapot Dram left any more. What a shame!
    • Nose
      Has got considerable depth, intensity and aromatic complexity. It is full, strongly flavoured, concentrated. Balsam, fleeting waff of incense, bramble, blackberry jam, dates, prune butter. Camphor oil, raisins/dried sultanas, sherry (Oloroso?), savoury spiced nuttiness. I detect some greengrocery (neep, horseradish) in the middle, then confections, chocolate fudge cake, black treacle, silt?/clay, marsh gas?, honeyed Brasil nuts.
    • Taste
      Abundant spicery, wild marjoram, a dash of pepper, paprika, dried cloves, cinnamon, oak barrel woodiness, tobacco, cardamom, strong black tea, astringent sour- and sweet cherries, freshly baked blackcurrant pie.
    • Finish
      Christmas cake, bonfire toffee?, liquorice allsorts, cold tea, a queer note of faded newspaper, whitewash, gritty barley husks/grist. Reasonably rough, fairly but not exceedingly hot - doesn't feel like 58,5% alcohol in any way, endless mouth-clinging aftertaste indeed.

    A veritable gem of a
    Glengoyne. Powerful, fruity and proud. I like it best without water. Only
    availaby at the distillery or through their online shop. Recommended! Thanks,
    • Nose
      Oh, my, very sweet
      and sherried nose with all the usual suspects such as raisins, plums, litchi
      and strawberry jam. Glambeed banana. Chocolate. A floral hint as well. Rosehip.
      Brown sugar. Molasses. Some black pepper and cloves. Grand! The spices come
      more to the fore with the addition of a splash of water.
    • Taste
      Spicy attack on the
      palate with more than just cloves and pepper. I even get some chili and curry.
      Mustard seeds? Cardemom and fried ginger. Spicy fruit
      salad. Reminds me a bit of the Auchentoshan Virgin Oak in that sense. But this
      was has more character and is sweeter. More body. Midpalate, it becomes a bit
      dry like a fruit tea. Diluted it is sharper, because of the spices.
    • Finish
      The finish on herbal
      tea lasts forever.
