Whisky Reviews for Glengoyne 2004
6 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 83.82 points
- Nose - Lemon drops, pear, green apple, gummy bears and custard cream.
Taste - Spice, oak, apple green, sweet, chocolate, vanilla and pear.
Finish - Short, crisp, sweet and clean. Faint oak in the background.
Thoughts - The top half was engaging, strong ABV and vibrant bourbon citrus character, but after getting 1/3 down the bottle.
I sometimes pour a dram and find it unpleasant and another time the complete opposite. Not sure if it's me or the climate which is a factor?
- Pretty closed. Alcohol ? More brandy. Some dried fruits, a little barley. In the mouth, barley, honey. Pretty rustic and austere. With a little water, the nose is vegetal, yeast itself. In the mouth, softer and more accessible. I was expecting something more mature and more generous. More disconcerted than truly disappointed.
- Big disappointment. In the nose absolutely not my case, because it lacks almost everything that makes a "good" whisky. Tasty slightly better, but not really good. This was not a particularly good keg imho, nor was it stored long enough to develop the corresponding aromas.
Malt. Smells like visiting a Malting Floors. Dust-dry hay behind, slightly alcoholic. A slightly acidic note in the background.
Not really pleasant, very disappointing in the nose.
Again malt, slightly floral. Slightly woody notes, a little bitterness. In the background again a slightly sour note. From fruit notes almost no trace, very coarse. Overall, a bit out of round.
Amazing long finish, astringent. Oak spice, pepper. The oral cavity stays dry.
- very pleasant whisky, despite the 60% vol. to drink very well undiluted.
Cereals, oak, vanilla
Vanilla, sherry, pleasantly spicy
- This was a little disappointing. I wouldn’t call it a bad whisky, it had a measure of complexity to it, but just not to the point one would expect from something reserved to be a distillery exclusive. It played too many similar notes and played them all too loudly, missing the subtlety elegance that usually makes Glengoyne special.Reviewed in my blog: https://iwriteaboutstuffilike.com/2016/11/15/glengoyne-2004-distillery-cask-31/
Huge malt aroma, I could smell it from across the room. Very musty sherry. Dry grass. Ozone. Honey. Hay. Balsa wood. Candied pineapple.
More big malty notes. Creamy porridge. Bitter wood. Woodspice. Seville oranges.
Long. Cinnamon. Seville orange. Fruity tannins. Light malt. Hay. Honey-lemon Hall’s lozenges.
