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.
