  3. Kaleva scored this whisky 85 points Expert Senior

    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.
    • Nose
      Sweet, honey, dried figs and apricots, sherry, honey, vanilla, flower notes (peony), sweet candy notes with water
    • Taste
      Sweet, slightly peppery, baked apples, syrup, black tea, clove, caramel, malt
    • Finish
      Medium-long, sweet, warm, drying, malty, light oaky bitter note

  5. hs305 scored this whisky 84 points Connoisseur

    [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!

  6. dRambo scored this whisky 83 points Connoisseur

    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 first vibrates with the brandy a disturbing artificial note. Definitely take time, it's worth it.
    • Nose
      light vanilla and white oak in raw amounts, sweetish, at first for a short time brandy, the oak is spicier and stronger, maybe even a bit smoky, added a carpet of fine toffee, red apple, the mood changes over time on the one hand for chocolate with cocoa and nuts and sherry-based dried fruit with raisins and dates, wonderful cherry flavors, buttery, the spice unfolds: cloves, cinnamon sticks, cedar, then gooseberry, orange, oatmeal, brown candy, mocha, traces of honey , Banana bread, malt, honeydew melon and ripe pears
    • Taste
      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, prunes, marzipan and almond, blood orange and apricot
    • Finish
      balanced and conclusive, cocoa and caramel, oak, slightly dry and spicy, some sherry and orange aroma, apricot, cloves and a little pepper, also cinnamon, later apple, banana bread, almonds, not overly long

  10. Bosi scored this whisky 86 points Specialist

    I can not see a big sherry barrel influence on the Glengoyne 18, but the Borubon barrels are all the more obvious. Lots of sweetness, lots of caramel, lots of butter in a balanced combination.
    • Nose
      I can smell caramel, malt and oak. But that's a massive butternote. Last but not least, a hint of orange resonates.
    • Taste
      The whisky tastes of chocolates, a little pepper, fudge and a nice caramel-like sweetness.
    • Finish
      The finish is long dominated by sweetness with traces of cake dough and vanilla.
