Glengoyne Single Malt Scotch Whisky

Tasting Notes Reveiw

Glengoyne 10 year old Single Malt Scotch Whisky

 

Unlike most other single malts Glengoyne has been preserving the essence of its flavour for decades by using air-dried barley rather than barley dried using harsh peat smoke. The result is a subtler, complex whisky in which all of the delicate flavours are freely allowed to express themselves.

 

Tasting Notes

 

Appearance: Golden yellow. Clear and bright

 

Nose: Sweet, with toffee and popcorn aromas. Slightly nutty, with fresh green apples coming through

 

Mouthfeel: Warming

 

Initial Taste: Clean. Green apples and grass with a hint of sweet liquorice

After Water: Sweeter. Linseed oil and almonds.

Finish: Sweet and malty

Comments: Great introduction to Glengoyne range

 

Glengoyne 12 year old  Single Malt Scotch Whisky

 

Discover the real taste of single malt. Distilled from air-dried barley without peat smoke, and using the soft, pure local water, this unique whisky is bottled unchill-filtered at cask strength to preserve its natural flavour.

 

Tasting Notes

Appearance: Amber, syrupy. Sauternes.

 

Nose: Oak, sherry, digestive biscuits, sweet oatcakes, banana, apricot, peaches, marzipan and peardrops. Does not prick the nose, despite high strength.

 

Mouthfeel: Viscous, rich and filling

 

Initial Taste: Smooth, sweet start, with some sherry and chocolate.

 

After Water: Becomes slightly waxy, with pepper at the tail.

 

Finish: Very long, stays with you until morning!

 

Comments: First released September 2004, this is a welcome addition to the family. This is 100 Proof, but you'd never know it. It slips down a treat and is probably at its best without water.

 

Glengoyne 19 year old 1985 55.8%  Single Malt Scotch Whisky

Handpicked by a team of experts at Glengoyne and personally approved by the signature of Robbie Hughes, Distillery Manager

 

Tasting Notes

 

Colour: Golden yellow.

 

Nose: Wild flowers, butter and cider apples. Elegant.

 

Palate: Rich and bold. Vanilla fudge, banana, cooked apples and ripe melon.

 

Finish: Superb, long, complex and rich.

 

Mashmans' Bottlings

Following the runaway success of Glengoyne's Stillmen range last year, the distillery's expert Mashmen have now been given the chance to prove that they are equally skilled when it comes to choosing the perfect whisky. With a combined expertise of more than 45 years the Mashmen have used their knowledge to pick their favourite single casks.

 

Jim's Choice Aged: 15yrs Tasting Notes

Description: I love Glengoyne at this age - the cask and the whisky are perfectly balanced. There is plenty of sweet fruit and rich oak. It is pale, straw in colour, with rich sweet aromas, full fruit flavours and a long dry finish. This is certainly no April fool!
