  1. HunterRomario scored this whisky 90 points Expert Senior

    • Nose
      A lot of sherry. Dense smell, full, leathery, sweet, with honey and nuts. Also marocan, raisins, heavy fruit, but also pleasant acidity, plums and oranges. (91 b)
    • Taste
      Again powerful sherry influence. Caramel, raisins, somewhat sweetish, but progressively spreading to dryness. Floury spices, baking and burnt toasts, toasts. (89 b)

    Fantastic whisky, especially for the money, a real sherry bowl!

  3. Bosi scored this whisky 89 points Specialist

    The aroma is fantastic, but unfortunately the taste and the finish can not quite keep up, because they do not have the same complexity. However, this is a very successful whisky, from one of my favorite distilleries.
    • Nose
      The nose starts with gravy, figs and the smell of cigar boxes. Later take over traces of fermented grapes and tobacco. In the background there is a very well embedded sulfur note.
    • Taste
      First, the sweetness of wild berry jam stands out, followed by oak notes, malt and sherry.
    • Finish
      The finish is very long with increasing sweetness, licorice and some orange zest.

  4. Philbolger scored this whisky 88 points Newbie

    Put quite simply, this scotch offers so much more than the sum of its price.  It is thick and sweet yet offers spice and deep complexity. It reminds me of an alcoholic cough syrup. If cough syrup were like this, one would long to have the winter cold.  Terrific value, well done Cadenhead

  8. Toffie76 scored this whisky 84 points Expert Senior

    Imbalance. Great disappointment because the nose is beautiful.
    • Nose
      Gorgeous. Full sherry. Juicy, apricots, marzipan, French toast, plums, leather (a little), milk chocolate, dried fruit, blond tobacco.
    • Taste
      Fruity and fruity. Start abrupt and intense. There follows a spicy wave in the middle of the mouth and a long development unfortunately too focused on bitterness.
    • Finish
      Menthol, ginger, lingering bitterness.

  9. Bishlouk scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    Clearly characterized by exotic spices that are present. The reduction is probably a good thing here, because it would surely have been too spicy in barrel. The nose is particularly greedy, but on the whole this Glengoyne is very pleasant and quite playful.
    • Nose
      Directly generous despite the reduction. Grapes and dried apricots, sweet spices. Fruit hulls with woody features. A bit of bitter dark chocolate, and orange zest after aeration.
    • Taste
      The reduction is more noticeable here, the introduction is soft and timid ... then the peppery caramel comes into action at once. Spices, hazelnut, and chocolate caramel.
    • Finish
      Average. The spicy exotic spices explode, it sputters everywhere. Splinters of dry wood, and bitter cocoa powder coming back in strength.

  10. Whisky-Connaisseur did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    Quite a big whisky. A pleasant, complex malt with all the aroma and
    character one can expect from the sherry cask. And all this at a
    reasonable price. Well done Cadenhead! Want to see more of this.

    • Nose
      Very rich. Sherry sweetness, treacle followed by ripe dark fruits,
      raisins. Quite intense. Feels like cask strength rather than 46% only.
    • Taste
      Very thick with tons of sherry and those dark dried fruits.
      Excellent mouthfeel, creamy, meaty, with chocolate and peppery spices in
      the background.
    • Finish
      Good length with lingering dried fruit. Creamy, meaty, almost chewable. Hints of orange peel at the very end. Amazingly long.

      WITH WATER: Stays sweet but vibrant. Increasing notes of orange and oak spices.
