Immediately after pouring a lot of oak and cedar wood. Behind it you can feel a whole armada of flavors that seem to be held back by something ... This malt benefits enormously from air and time. After 2-3 hours (!) In the glass, in my opinion, the culmination of the variety of flavors is reached. So we remove the glass and return after some time: Lots of dried fruits: plums, dates and raisins are clearly dominant here. Everything strongly oxidized and in fruity Oloroso sherry inserted. The typical for Glengoyne apple is also found here. In the meantime, it has been filled with raisins and seasoned with cinnamon to make a baked apple. Tubular cane sugar and marzipan are formed with increasing time.
Orange peel and cardamom complete the nose with a splash of balsamic and a very strong European oak. The untrained nose would almost think of smoke here.
The oak and the strong alcohol are on your tongue with all your might. The entire mouth seems to be lined with sherry and oranges. Wonderfully sweet and balanced, the whisky plays with the taste buds. In the mouth unmistakable Glengoyne, apples and cooked red fruits are typical of a representative of this sherry keg distillery. Some white pepper brings a touch of sharpness into play.
Marzipan, cane sugar and cinnamon linger for half an eternity in the mouth. The very strong oak decides to go relatively fast and makes room for a potpourri of fruits: again oranges, plums and apples. As if by a miracle, these are suddenly not overripe, but are in full bloom at the beginning of their maturity
