Taste - Spice, oak, apple green, sweet, chocolate, vanilla and pear.
Finish - Short, crisp, sweet and clean. Faint oak in the background.
Thoughts - Excellent straight, just don't pour a large dram. Worth every penny and this is why Glengoyne is one of my favorite distillery, glad I have a second bottle. This is how whisky should be, with the bonus of some sediment in the bottle.
