Whisky Reviews for Glengoyne 12-year-old
12 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 82.24 points
A lot of citrus in the nose, green apples,
In terms of taste less fresh than the smell. Sherry, vanilla, dates (?), A tad dry mouthfeel. Overall tasty starter drink or as a starter to start the evening.
Medium long, especially a lot of sweet and a bit spicy in the finish.
- Caramel, apples, lemon zest, spices, oak, cake, toffee notes on nose.
Dried fruits, spices, dryness, apples, oak, honey, caramel and cocoa notes on palate.
Spices, dryness, sweet fruits, vanilla, lemon zest and oak notes on middle finish.
It’s a good smooth whisky.
- A very balanced whisky due to a perfect balance in casks.
Apple and lemon zest, general fruitiness. A butterscotch and toffee apple sweetness. After a while bit more woody. Some tropical elements as well, like coconut and vanilla.
A very soft and corny palate. Malted milk and dulce de leche, also salted caramel. Again woody but with hints of cinnamon.
A very fruity finish, hints of blood oranges. Te cinnamon note of woodiness returns. An ever so slightly dark chocolate bitterness.

Rich, fruity (melon), vanilla, sweet and white peper
Vanilla, malty, light sherry, fruit
Subtle sherry, again malty, apple and pear, very light;
Rather short and sweet;
N: Honeyed, floury malt, raisins, creamy caramel, a fresh fustiness [if thats possible?], a little slice of new plimsole rubber, figs,… Easy and pleasant with clear signs of more growing potential.
T: More of the same. Cuts in nicely with decent weight, some body and shape.
F: Short with milky/chalky, vanilled, malty-chocolate-y sweet remnants.
C: Pleasing balance between maturity and youth. As i commented last year, [still] a very decent entry-level core release.Scores C+
- N: Well aged distillate.
T: All round goodness
F: Really good, balanced, heathery,…
C: A decent core expression.Scores a B-
