    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
    satisfying.

    A fresh and fruity Glengoyne, very good.
    • Nose
      Very fresh, vanilla and honey, and some yeast.
    • Taste
      Sweet and creamy, vanilla and pineapples.
    • Finish
      Medium long finish, with a peppery attack.
