  1. schengel10 scored this whisky 82 points Connoisseur

    An interesting, somewhat boisterous Cask Strength that lacks maturity! Compared to A 'BUNADH I see him behind it!
    Still a good malt for a fair price!
    [Color] amber;
    • Nose
      fruity (oranges), sherry, nuts, leather, oak;
    • Taste
      with water: fruity (grape, peach, orange), a little sherry, oily, caramel, oak, pepper; intense, gruff and clearly young;
    • Finish
      a medium-long, creamy finish with milk chocolate and sherry, in the finish oak, dry;

    Aroma: fortified wine, dry grain barn, sweet yeast dough, peanuts, gingerbread, milk chocolate, butterscotch, burnt caramel; the second wave comes assorted nuts, raisins. Sherry worked here quite delicately, raisin-dried fruit notes are not in the foreground, but hidden under confectionery and maltiness.

    Taste: very bright, burning red pepper, burnt caramel, red-hot nuts, boiled hot pepper, bitter herbal infusion, liqueur sweet, hints of fortified red wine.

    Finish: longer than average, repeats the taste; decaying chili pepper, added very sweet coffee, herbal bitter.

    Rating: 87

    Bottom line: there is a slight imbalance between aroma and taste, but the molt is rather pleasant and not boring, with a long finish. Such a sherry whisky, in which sherry only complements the base without hammering it.

    Unfortunately the butterscotch is not to my liking - reminds me on the typical Glenrothes distilled in the 90s
    • Nose
      Leathery, boots, vanilla notes, nutty, hints of sweet fruits, butterscotch?
    • Taste
      Definitely butterscotch, also some oaky notes, spices, subtle sweetness
    • Finish
      Medium long, warm, a bit drying

  10. WhiskyLovingPianist did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    N: Given it’s around 8-9 years old, it’s far more distillate driven, though like the 12yo WB & the 15yo WB, this is still so soft despite the abv rise. 
    T: Wow, there's the full abv impact - so covert on the nose.
    F: The full impact of using first fill & virgin casks [bourbon & sherry], for 8-9 years at cask strength is laid bare.
    C: It is what it is and i’m cool with it, but I’m glad Glengoyne have their core aged malts too.Scores a C[+].
