    Violent sherry dominates this Glengoyne. Dried fruit ends in a pleasant sharpness, voluminous and powerful sherry flavors play with each other. I really like a wonderful sherry filling!

    23/23/22/22 (89P)
    • Nose
      Intense caramel shines reddish from the glass, on the glass wall of my premium snifter there is a multitude of small "legs". Raisins and dates rise, dried fruits play with caramelized sugar and hazelnuts, oranges rub off, minimally there is a hint of tart citrus fruits. Every now and then the otherwise harmoniously integrated alcohol flashes, the orange aroma intensifies, sweet raisins end in a slightly menthol freshness.
    • Taste
      Oranges and raisins dominate the first sip with caramel and dark sherry flavors. Voluminous draws warmth through the palate, wooden sharpness tickles discreetly between the lips, a pinch of white pepper dusted on the tongue. The second sip is characterized by intense dried fruit, raisins, dates, dried orange and grapefruit peels end in a peppery heat on the tip of the tongue, wooden elements and hints of sour cherries are added. The mouthfeel changes constantly between creamy and dry, at the moment the saliva is stimulated.
    • Finish
      Dark and dried fruit aromas stick to the palate, caramel drips from the tongue, creamy hazelnuts come into their own, the mouthfeel becomes greasy and oily. The voluminous aftertaste sticks to the palate and flatters the tongue.

    This is definitely more than a daily dram - very well balanced - I never had the feeling that it is over-sherried
    • Nose
      Huge and intense dried fruits, plums, prunes, dates, toffee, butter caramel, sugar cane - very good
    • Taste
      Punchy, oily, creamy, lots of dried fruits again, figs, nutmeg, very nice oak wood, good sweetness
    • Finish
      Long and burning, spicy and peppery but not drying

  3. LordBellamy scored this whisky 89 points Expert Senior

    Nose: toffee and caramel sweetness that always changes to balsamic vinegar, plum jam and almond / hazelnut flavors, the alcohol is quite well integrated, but is present and gives him something fresh, mentholhaftes, oaks and spice flavors come through, especially cloves and some cinnamon , red fruits like raspberry and strawberry

    Taste: Sherry explosion in the mouth, quite oily, the alcohol bites very strong here, has a peppery, slightly dry oak

    Finish: long and warm, later drier on the tongue, again massive sherry with dried fruit and the hazelnut from the nose is now much more dominant, almost towards nougat

    With water: it softens, opens and reveals much more fruit flavors, then vanilla and even some coconut cream with chocolate topping

    Significantly better than the previous batches, which is almost back towards batch 1 - 89 points
