  1. aphex scored this whisky 90 points Expert Senior

    So enjoyable and moreish.
    Madeleine de Proust inside.
    • Nose
      A heavy sherry. Gingerbread, dried fruits, grilled meat, roasted nuts.
    • Taste
      Oily. Spicy attack, dark raisins and more roasted nuts. "Qui veut des chouchous ?" Sorry. Reminds me of some summers on the beach anticipating the vendors and asking the parents to buy some chouchous (candy coated peanuts). So tasty.
    • Finish
      Finish : Same, long.

    Color: dark mahogany, fatty oily legs.

    Nose: The sherry immediately comes to the fore, dark red fruits and a lot of it, hammer (sic!) - roasting aromas, grilled dates (someone knows the dates in a bacon coat for grilling?) With a slight smoke association, the alcohol is very harmoniously involved, one of the best Glengoyne noses (and quite a nose in comparison to other distilleries) that I have ever had.

    Mouth: Fat oily onset, here too grilled dates dominant, the heavy red fruits occupy the tongue and palate, roasted aromas, a slight Schwevel- / Schwarzpulverassoziations (hence the smoke in the nose?) Horny.

    Finish: Long, on red fruits, the dates and with harmoniously integrated alcohol.

    With water: even sweeter, more pleasing, more fruity.

    Conclusion: Great cinema for a 15yo Glengoyne, in this age range probably the best Glengoyne, which I had so far in the glass.
