Whisky Reviews for Glengoyne 1996 LsD

    [April, 2018]  It is quite a while ago since I had my last Glengoyne so I do this short review of a generous sample (almost one-third left in the bottle) tonight.

    The colour is pale gold and the texture shows a fat sticky ring with small tears and medium fast legs.  The nose is extremely citric fruity (lemons, lime, grapefruit and the like) with some summer floral and spicy wooden notes.  If you like such a profile it is a great nosing experience, unfortunately this is too much of a citric spike for me (but a good friend really adores it).  Nonetheless, a fine nose indeed!  The whisky arrives warming and (just a little) coating in the mouth with no distracting moments.  The taste itself again is all about that citric fruity spike with some minor barley sugars, floral impressions and shy spices.  Not really complex (but if you like such a profile...).  The finish is rather short and a little more spicy than the taste what balances the citric spike somewhat.  Water is not needed as it flattens the dram and releases some (minor) soapy flavours.

    This surely is a dram for all lovers of citric fruits in their whisky, you will score this one much higher (I guess).  To all others this might not be that impressive, but it is worth a try nevertheless...
