    • Nose
      Toffee, blueberry, cranberry, malt and a little blood orange. Later almond and hazelnut.

  5. p4blo scored this whisky 85 points Expert Senior

    Overall a decent dram, but quite a forgettable one, too.
    • Nose
      The nose is quite sweet with a well pronounced fruity side on oranges and tangerines, but there is a fair amount of chocolate and toffee too. Alcohol is easily detectable too. Some slight off notes of varnish.
    • Taste
      Full bodied, oily, creamy, with the obvious sherry cask influence. Stewed plums, orange marmelade, some liquorice, there is also a slight winey side to it. Milk chocolate, fudge, a pinch of pepper and ginger.
    • Finish
      Medium long with sweetness of the fruits developing into a rather tannic, drying aftertaste.

    Thanks for the sample Diogenes! A nice Glengoyne with an even better finish.

  8. markjedi1 scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    Not the most complex
    Glengoyne, but very nice. For those with a sweet tooth. Serve it with coffee
    and pastry. Around 80 EUR.
    • Nose
      The nose is quite
      sweet on plums, sultanas, mandarin and liquorice. I am reminded of English
      candy, somewhat. Cuberdons (Google it!) and toffee apples. Coffee beans! Hint
      of milk chocolade. Freshly polished leather. Nice.
    • Taste
      Despite the high
      alcohol level, it arrives pretty softly, but spicy. Creamy too, almost syrupy.
      A bittersweet edge appears. Mandarin and grapefruit? Espresso with a layer of
      foam. Crème au beurre. This is special.
    • Finish
      The finish is more of
      the same and pleasantly long. It leaves the mouth warm.

    A lot oj juicy oranges and marmelade on the palate. Some oakiness, too- not a bad one, but not so complex. Alcohol is very well integrated. Pretty solid Glengoyne.
