Whisky Reviews for Glengoyne 1997 MoS

6 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 84.47 points

  1. hs305 scored this whisky 66 points Connoisseur

    [January, 2010]  I emptied bottle no. 70 into the toilet that I bought for 70 Euro in October, 2009.

    In my old rating system (ten scales that translate into WB points: 50 - 66 - 75 - 80 - 82,5 - 85 - 87,5 - 90 - 92,5 - 95) I scored it 65.  My notes state "delicious like the devil's pee".  Extremely spoiled with sulphur and a disgusting mouthfeel that takes days to get off.  Now (in 2017) I know some german people that actually like such stuff so I would save it for their pleasure...

    Glengoyne 1997/2009 (57.2%, Malts of Scotland, sherry butt, cask #582, 314 bottles)  Colour: amber. Nose: certainly drier than the 1998, starting more on cocoa and bitter oranges and developing on fruitcake and crème brulée, with an obvious but rather beautiful oakiness behind. Whiffs of leather pouch and then a straighter vinosity (chardonnay). Cognac. Once again, it’s not overly expressive when at cask strength. With water: just a little sulphur, then more rooty and leafy notes (and no more sulphur). Gentian, liquorice wood, dates and figs. Very, very pleasant. Mouth (neat): starts slightly prickly and almost fizzy, with some lemon juice and tannins, then oranges and bitter chocolate. Christmas cake, walnut liqueur. Rather unusual I must say, let’s see what happens with water: it’s still slightly fizzy. Notes of ginger and pepper, with a good deal of tannins. Lemon marmalade. Finish: rather long and maybe more complex, with other spices kicking in as well as some liquorice wood. Herbal tea. Comments: the cask seems to have been extremely active here. Very good Glengoyne, a tad rougher than other versions. I liked the hogshead a little better even if it was more a classic sherry monster. SGP:651 - 86 points.

    Extreme infusion for sherry junkies. Bangs you out of your shoes. I am surprised how many people seem to like it.
    • Nose
      Warming. Like sherry concentrate. Burnt chocolate cake. Liquorice and pipe tobacco. This is heavy stuff and you must be a sherry junkie to enjoy it.
    • Taste
      Cough ... cough ... staccato cough. Definitely over-sherried for my taste buds. Like sherry that has been concentrated until it is oily. Has a bitter component as well, like a cocktail made of cough syrup and resinous. I am not sure about the sulphur. Booohhh ... what a threatening monster. But I like sherry. And monsters as well - Frankenstein sherry :)
    • Finish
      Long. Old wood saturated with Frankenstein sherry.
