  1. Thermidor scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    Based on the reviews here, I was expecting something different than the simple dram I got. It's not a bad whisky by any means, but I've had better Glengoynes.
    • Nose
      Musty start with some damp wine cellar notes, followed by old leather and some rubber bands. It's a pleasing enough nose, but there isn't that much happening here.
    • Taste
      Sugar and confections. A deep sherry note, with some waxed apples and taffy. Neat I find it a bit biting, but water makes it rough. Sweet it is, syrupy even, but otherwise I feel it's always somehow off-balance.
    • Finish
      Fatty, sweet and syrupy. Leaves my lips oily. Not particularly full.

  2. LeChiffre scored this whisky 93 points Connoisseur

    Once again a dream of SC Whisky from Glengoyne! Incredibly multi-layered, intense and mouth-filling aromas of fruitiness and tingling oak spice, which come into their own with a few splashes of water. Unfortunately, you will probably get something like this less and less today.

    Beautiful sherry part! With eucalyptus and vanilla rooibos tea notes and a nice crisp finish. Already drunk several times and always great!
