  1. tangtang scored this whisky 90 points Expert Senior

    a very tasty sherry malt. It looks significantly older than 14 years. Wonderful flavor profile. The alcohol is a bit stinging in the nose without water, but not really bothersome. You have to like the bitter taste. I think the combination of the flavors is very successful. I like it very much.
    • Nose
      many dried fruits immediately rise to the nose. Raisins, plums, dark fruits, somewhat sweet with vanilla, spicy, alcohol is noticeable, quite strong. With a few drops of water, the slightly pungent alcohol takes off and it becomes softer, slightly sweeter and much fruity.
    • Taste
      dark fruity start, strong sherry notes, spicy, some pepper, oak notes, plums and raisins. With a few drops of water, the dark fruit basket comes to the fore. It also looks slightly sweeter and rounder now. Some vanilla comes through.
    • Finish
      strong finish. Again intense dark and dried fruits, becoming spicy and peppery, slightly bitter towards the end. Some oak notes. With a few drops of water it looks less powerful, but rounder and fuller. The fruits and sweetness come into their own and the bitter takes a back seat, but is still noticeably there.

    A Glengoyne where you can feel the PX influence from the finish, it also looks a bit older than the 14J. You have to like the slightly tart finish in the finish, I find it coherent and well integrated. Overall, a great sparkling sweet-spicy malt with nice dark fruity aromas, without being overloaded. It tolerates a few drops of water, which makes the slightly alcoholic note disappear.
    • Nose
      90 90
      sweet and fruity; Sugar beet syrup; dark fruits; Dates; Raisins; some vanilla; the alcohol stings a little but not really annoying - with water it becomes fruity and develops notes in the direction of fruit gums; delicate oak notes that stay in the background
      - Great nose that looks older and where you can clearly feel the PX influence.
    • Taste
      89 89
      sweet-spicy approach; slightly peppery sparkling spice comes up; delicately tart oak notes join in well; Dates; Raisins; Herbal notes; Cinnamon; dark chocolate; with water it becomes creamy and the chocolate and sweet dark fruits come out even more clearly
    • Finish
      88 88
      tingly spicy; somewhat peppery; pleasantly bitter-tart oak aromas; Dried fruits; dark chocolate

  3. Marko_I did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    Wow, he got a good sherry, very tasty and good dilution reserve. Nevertheless, 100 € 'ne pretty flagpole, because you get under it similar good or older.
    • Nose
      dark and dry, cocoa, molasses, sugar beet syrup, tobacco, a very light alcoholic stinging, but with a drop of water flies, then there's fruity wine gums
    • Taste
      Walnut, dark chocolate, very strong - slightly pungent, tolerates good water, then lots of sweetness, chocolate, brown sugar, raisins, roasted nuts, cinnamon ... with lots of water the purest nut nougat cream
    • Finish
      long, cocoa, sugar beet syrup, some pepper,

    Nose: Sweetness, minerality. Forest fruits, raisins.
    Smka: A strong aroma is felt from the first attempt. The taste is sweet with a slight sharpness. It's very nice combined. The taste of the barrel is also noticeable.
    Rating: 88 | 100 A fairly long finish with a sweet taste that changes into dry climates.

  7. berkman Berkmann scored this whisky 80 points Expert Junior

    NOSE: wood, burnt-out candle wick, dried fruits, cranberries, dark bread, leather, raspberry compote on custard, sweetened vegetable broth, light fruit jelly with citrus peel, effervescent candies

    MOUTH: quite alcoholic, custard, bitterness towards grapefruit (not too short!)

    ABKLANG: warming, light citrus aromas, steamed kohlrabi

    Only because of the fantastic NOSE still made the 80!

  8. Hobbit did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    A delicious Glengoyne who fortunately is not overloaded with the sherry but still has gotten a lot. I particularly like the spicy-sweet-chocolate finish here
    • Nose
      fine first nose with great intense PX-Sherrynoten, unfortunately some pungent alcohol, caramel, barrel, red apple, plum jam, roasted almonds, strong sweetened fruit compote, sweet dessert cream, forest honey, dates, raisins, malt beer, which is a sweetened composition of sweet fruit and partly berries, creamy dessert / honey and influences of oak. He looks a little older than 14 years. From time to time, some sulfur and muff, sugar beet syrup on the Sunday bun
    • Taste
      sweet and spicy start, some pepper, oak, dry wood, then it gets sweeter with fruit gums, vinous dry, dates, a trace of nuts, tart herbs, cloves, raisin, cocoa powder, cinnamon, brown sugar
    • Finish
      beautiful spicy-chocolatey finish with fine oak, dark chocolate, sherry, apples, some tobacco, warming and drier, nice long, creamy finish with hints of mint and roasted aromas

    pleasing sweet-fruity malt, which looks older than it is, but is also priced higher than the 21-year-old Glen Goyne, I would not directly compare the two - too different - who is on elegant sweet non-sticky sherry without bitterness, where fruity acids rather to play a supporting role is right here
    • Nose
      sweet, dates, raisins, a bit dusty - old cellar - sawdust with some resin, oak notes with vanilla, dark berries with fruity acidity, herbaceous aromatic forest honey, it looks ripe, old, round, smells wonderful
    • Taste
      fruity sweet with a hint of malt, very sweet dates and raisins, plums with cinnamon, minty tart oak tickles the tongue, cools the palate a little bit, the herbaceous sweetness is getting more and more intense - a bit like Ricola herbal candy - with prolonged chewing it becomes increasingly more complex even more wood and honey notes free in other facets
    • Finish
      medium long, warm, minty, becoming drier - with intense sweetness and beautiful notes of wood - invites you directly to the next sip
