      Round on the palate, good malt, spicy, pastry, the alcohol is also here
    • Finish
      medium long, sharp, spicy

  2. Shane_IL scored this whisky 83 points Expert Senior

    This smells a lot younger than it is, the nose is very active and has some bite to it. On the palate it’s still very intensely flavoured but tastes more its age. Not a bad whisky all in all but I think it was a little unbalanced and do prefer the sherry maturation.Reviewed in my blog:https://iwriteaboutstuffilike.com/2017/05/23/glengoyne-20/
