Whisky Reviews for Glengoyne 18-year-old
5 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 84.00 points
Fruity, just like the youngsters from this series, but much heavier, more complex. Where initially the apples predominated, now it is the pear. Some wood tones, some wax. Nice nose!
Sweet. Honey. Burnt sugar. Caramel. The fruit is on the back of the tongue: apple in particular, but also pear. His low ABV takes something away from his career.
Short to medium. Bitter sweet with a small sharp edge of pepper.
- In general, better 15ki but not much. Considering the qualitative leap in development from 12 to 15
Aroma: Noble oak. A bit of malt and vanilla with honey. Polish apples background (red). In general, a logical continuation of 15ki.
Taste: Oak sherry with pepper. Apple and citrus marmalade.
Finish: Marmalade "slices" (lemon, grapefruit and orange). More saturated and longer than 15k.
- [November, 2014] As the first edition of this 18 year old from 2012 was spoiled with sulphur I had a tasting sip before buying this bottle for 61 Euro in October, 2014. In my old rating system (ten scales that translate into WB points: 50 - 66 - 75 - 80 - 82,5 - 85 - 87,5 - 90 - 92,5 - 95) I scored it 85. My notes state an easy drinkable dram (but not more)...
