  1. Murphy scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    To my taste, complex and anything but boring. No typical sherry bomb that covers everything.
    • Nose
      Raisins, dry oak, metallic sweetness.
      Apricots, dark fruits.
    • Taste
      Again a very dry mouthfeel. Raisins and dark chocolate. On nice sulfurous smell. Walnuts and rum pot.
    • Finish
      Warm and creamy. The dark fruits stay long. The Brennereicharakter is also present for a longer time.

  2. Segens scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    A bit better than the Bourbon version for me which I shared also. A solid Sherry Glengoyne with "some special effects"! :-)
    • Nose
      by far not as dark as it seems on the photo!

      A lot of bacon and smoke which is no typical Glengoyne nose. Some pepper and strawberry notes show up. Quite well balanced!
    • Taste
      Fruity sweetness is now more dominant and the smoke disappears from second to second but is still somewhere in the back. On top of the plums I have some brown sugar, oak and pepper again.  
    • Finish
      The finish is smooth not bitter at all and quite long for its young age.

  5. Tommyknocker scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    one of the dancers, rather a Fanta sulfur bomb than a sherry bomb, but really interesting and balanced.
    • Nose
      slightly sulphurous, madeira-like, intense orange sweetness, popcorn in butter. Very interesting, but also delicious!
    • Taste
      sweet, sulfurous, honey syrup, jaffa cake, milk chocolate. Good!
    • Finish
      long, honey sweet without end.

    sergeA lighter colour this time. Colour: deep gold. Nose: maybe refill this time,
    this is lighter, more herbal… I also find these whiffs of rubber again (bands)
    as well as rather fruit skins and leaves. It’s a little hard to nose this after
    the sherry monsters, I should have been more careful and check the colours.
    Because yes, of course colours do matter, as long as the whisky’s not been
    caramelised. Cherry leaves, a little sawdust, perhaps. Mouth: I don’t know. I
    love some parts, some others are a little too… rubbery. Preserved plums, a
    feeling of chalk, rubber bands, sulphur, then pepper… Nah it’s very good, but
    once again, the others were better (in my opinion, as always.) Finish: quite
    long, a little more uncertain. Comments: I think I should have had this one as
    #1 within this flight.


  7. jocmueller scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    Color: dark red gold

    Nose: Sulphur / gunpowder - ohoh - you probably have to like this kind of nose ;).

    Palate: Still pretty much on gunpowder, the sherry in the background kind of manages to shine through, slightly alcoholic. Some leather and dried red fruits in the background. Old leather.

    Finish: Also heavy on gunpowder, red dried fruits, getting a little sweeter with time.

    Souns weird, but is pretty good if you have no problem with sulphur in your glass....
