    Starting humble and ending great!
    • Nose
      90 90
      Definitely mushrooms, earthy, mossy water, hints of acacia honey, walnuts, spices, little oak wood, dried fruits, cooked oranges, whiffs of overripe fruits and solvent - really good
    • Taste
      92 92
      Punchy, oily, creamy, sirupy, nutty, dried fruits, dates, figs, subtle sweetness, hints of vanilla, oak wood, also little meaty, beef bouillon, pork sausage - great
    • Finish
      93 93
      Long, warm, more punchy, more spicy, more woody, but not drying, pepper, chili, vermouth - excellent!

    Distilled on 22nd December 1967 and matured in a Sherry butt, this whisky had an
    out turn of only 246 bottles. The 37 year-old Glengoyne expression gives a much
    greater contrast to the 19 and 32 Year Olds, with a comparatively dry, spicy,
    Sherried nose. Butterscotch and honey on the palate, with slightly peppery notes
    towards the finish.

    sergeColour: pale amber. Nose: oh, this is just as stunning, yet quite different.
    Much more winey, superbly sweet and sour, with some very bold notes of cooked
    rennet apples topped with hot butter and caramel. Almost a sin. Much more humus,
    earthy notes as well, fresh mushrooms, high-end pu-erh tea, and again all the
    litany, from quince jelly to mirabelle plum and from nectar to sweet white wine.
    It’s a beauty, perhaps a tad more discreet than the 1972 but certainly more
    complex and delicate. Fascinating. Mouth: oh yessss! That’s the kind of attack I
    just can’t resist. Some ‘western’ fruits, some tropical ones, some waxy,
    empyreumatical and smoky notes, a little spices and that’s it, you have a winner
    – in my opinion, at least. This Glengoyne have them all, with some big notes of
    crystallised quince topping the whole. It is not very complex, it is not very
    bold, it is not full-bodied, but it’s superbly balanced and even if the finish
    is a bit drying (but I can’t remember a malt that wasn’t at least a little
    drying at more than 35 years of age) I think the whole is just a thrill.
