    Who gives this whisky the time and patience that it demands, is rewarded extensively. Shortly after pouring, the malt is very oak-like and the wood dominates the wonderful flavors that initially hide behind it. Anyone who works with a lot of time and a few drops of water can gradually discover an infinite number of facets. In a blind tasting I would have typed here on 25 years of age. Truly a blessed barrel!
    • Nose
      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.
    • Taste
      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.
    • Finish
      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
