Whisky Reviews for Glengoyne 18-year-old
11 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 82.47 points
Apples, ripe fruits, very light banana
Apples, sherry, walnut, marzipan, oak, orange
Long and nutty
Complex Malt - you should take your time, very balanced
- Pleasant whisky, obviously sherry-influenced on the nose but much less than expected in the palate with quite strong maltiness. Well balanced and full-bodies with slightly bitter aftertaste. But on my opinion the complexity expected for this age is missing. Anyways solid all-rounder, maybe a bit expensive to be a daily dram.
Sweet, honey, dried figs and apricots, sherry, honey, vanilla, flower notes (peony), sweet candy notes with water
Sweet, slightly peppery, baked apples, syrup, black tea, clove, caramel, malt
Medium-long, sweet, warm, drying, malty, light oaky bitter note
- Very well balanced and complex malt. Nice standard with good PLV.
very round, sweet, slightly sherry, fruity with apples and banana, vanilla
Nuttily spicy, sweet, fruity, marzipan, chocolate
long and dry, nutty, spicy oak
- [June, 2018] Just a short review of a recent miniature bottle. This is a modern style sherry profile with some minor sulphurous notes (that are not really annoying) but nothing else that is remarkable. Easy to drink and easy to forget afterwards. What else to say? Slainte!
- Nose: sweet cherries, sour blackcurrants, red apples, cocoa, toffee, tobacco, later vanilla, the nose is complex - it transforms its shape, is sometimes appleier times berry - really interesting Taste: first a light alcoholic touch, sweet and sour berry fruit, a little plum, stronger oak spice, tobacco, pepper, cinnamon non-alcoholic tingling on the tongue, dark chocolate turns into milk chocolate with toffee, very clean, oily, increasingly rounder with each additional sip In the finish, the spicy woody notes dominate, which easily fade into the bitterness Conclusion: For me a lot better than the 10 or 15 - Glengoyne tastes me especially with a lot of Sherry keg
- The nose offers a wonderful complexity, only at the beginning there is an annoying artificial note with the brandy. Definitely take your time, it's worth it.
light vanilla and white oak in rough quantities, sweet, initially briefly brandy, the oak becomes more spicy and
stronger, maybe even a little smoky, there is also a carpet made of fine toffee, red apple again and again, the basic mood changes over time to chocolate with cocoa and nuts and to sherry-based dried fruit with raisins and dates, wonderful
Cherry flavors, buttery, the spice also unfolds: cloves, cinnamon sticks, cedar, then gooseberry, orange, oatmeal, brown candy, mocha, traces of honey, banana bread, malt, honeydew melon and ripe pears
very full-bodied, honey, juicy fruit, nice cinnamon note, neat oak, malt, spice with a hint of pepper, some vanilla, some sherry, strong cocoa and juicy chocolate-walnut cake, raisins, prune, marzipan and almond, blood orange and apricot
balanced and conclusive, cocoa and caramel, oak, slightly dry and spicy, some sherry and orange aroma, apricot, clove and a little pepper, also cinnamon, later apple, banana bread, almond slivers, not excessively long
