 Colour: gold. Nose: completely different from the official 40, that is to say mostly explosively fruity. Surprisingly big notes of bubblegum, tinned pineapples and banana liqueur, then more coconut and white chocolate. If you like hugely fruity oldies, this is for you. With water: more of the same, with added notes of marzipan. Ultra-clean. Mouth (neat): once again, the fruitiness is immense here. There are even hints of Muscat grapes, litchis and bags of fresh strawberries, as well as these notes of pineapple that we already had on the nose. Spectacular ‘polished youth’, so to speak. With water (although water isn’t obligatory here): emphatically fruity, with also more vanilla fudge, millionaire shortbread and nougat. Finish: medium long but still very clean, fruity, jammy, with a little more tannins but also added notes of pink grapefruits. Comments: immensely drinkable and stunningly alive. The huge problem is that one may quaff litres of this without even noticing and at 55%, that can be quite dangerous. Another amazing old Glengoyne.

Nose

Vanille, beaucoup de pomme, pamplemousse, moins exubérant que le 1972, demande plus de temps mais assez complexe aussi, plus difficile à cerner...

Taste

Bouche: un peu épicée, toujours sur la vanille, miel, plus clean que le 1972, plus chaude aussi et herbacée avec de l'eau...très agréable

Finish

Finale: Très longue, très épicée, cramble au fruits, orange/mandarine, un peu cireuse, plus chaude et boisée aussi, quelques notes d'abricot et de cannelle...

Comments

Pas très expressif au nez, mais très plaisant...très chouette finale avec un bel équilibre entre les épices et le reste. Supporte très bien un ajout d'eau...

Nose

Beaucoup de pommes et de toutes sortes. Bonbon Napoléon à la pomme, pomme pink lady (bien sucrées miam), pommes caramélisées, jus de pommes et apfelstrudel. En écho à ce dernier, un peu de raisin muscat et de canelle. C’est fruité, pâtissier et légèrement épicé à la fois tout en gardant le même fil rouge, pas besoin de vous dire lequel. Plus un côté floral pas déplaisant. L’ensemble est pur, droit, délicat.

Taste

Chaude. Douce et fruitée de prime abord. Ensuite boisée et amertume.

Finish

Pâte d’amande, relance fruitée avec de la pomme et des raisins muscat. Du boisé à nouveau. Un peu simpliste. Longueur moyenne. Finale entre le sucré et l'amer. Après 4 mois, le boisé disparait peu à peu et laisse place à un fruité intense.

Comments

Un nez assez monomaniaque. Pas monolithique pour autant, la reine de nos vergers sachant varier ses atours et nous surprendre de plus belle. Le nez est beau donc mais le reste a vraiment du mal à suivre. Trop effacé et marqué par le bois (voire l'alcool). Ce côté dérangeant, s'est effacé après quelques mois. Ne pas hésiter à mettre de l eau, il est très puissant.

Nose

Powerful, intensive, very clean and fruity. Caramel covered vanilla ice cream with acacia honey and mirabelle schnaps. Mnjam mjnam mnjam. Quite flowery as well. A great nose.

Taste

The first mouthfeel is wow! Pure delight and intensity. Rich and balanced. Candied overripe mirabelles and fudge. Very tasty.

Finish

Long and satisfying. Still on caramel and sweet mirabelles. A liquid dessert par excellence. Don't need sweets anymore, this is better.

Comments

A great discovery. I could not imagine that old bourbon casked Glengoyne would taste so delicious.
