  1. larswehmeier scored this whisky 84 points Expert Senior

    • Nose
      Great strong ex-Bourbon nose. Marzipan. Shortbread. Fine tea note.
    • Taste
      Mild and tasty. Beautiful milk chocolate touch.
    • Finish
      Warming in the finish.

    Great to see some unaltered Glengoyne spirit letting its trademark tea notes explode. Quite educational, and good to boot, what's not to love ?
    • Nose
      Albeit extremely different from Glengoyne's typical sherried profiles, this works well. Great bourbon characterstics with fudgy sawdust, some medicinal touches, some evident vanilla ... then quite a deal of loam and pine needles. Sweet pinesap - think La Vosgienne !

    • Taste
      Wowee, this might be the first time I encounter a main note that is so striking, so evident : TEA ! Incredible black tea galore, with again those sappy bergamot notes ... this is cask strenght Earl Grey, no doubt !
    • Finish
      Quite long with great woody structure and globally the same notes. Gently drying, but not overly so.
