- sergeColour: pale straw. Nose: extremely discreet at first nosing, slightly floral
with hints of coffee and old cardboard, limestone, wet chalk… It gets then
rather herbal, grassy, on freshly mown lawn, lily of the valley, a little
violets… Also a little mashy and yeasty, with some dairy cream, mashed potatoes…
It finally opens up after quite some time, getting quite farmy. An interesting
‘natural’ Glengoyne. Mouth: sweet and rather creamy, much more expressive than
expected. Quite some liquorice, salted butter caramel, dried parsley, light soy
sauce. Develops on dried tropical fruits, pineapples, coconut (better than
Malibu), ginger… Very nicely balanced, at that, even if it gets gingerier and
gingerier. Long and, you guessed it, gingery (and honeyed) finish. Extremely
enjoyable on the palate, sort of rounded and sharp at the same time. Very
- A fresh and fruity Glengoyne, very good.
Very fresh, vanilla and honey, and some yeast.
Sweet and creamy, vanilla and pineapples.
Medium long finish, with a peppery attack.
