What's in a name? Glengoyne 10 Year Old whisky is called whisky because it's produced in Scotland. Were it from America it would be spelled Glengoyne 10 Year Old whiskey, rather than whisky.
Nose: Slightly herbal, big bourbon influence which has brought a wonderful "high note". White milk bottle sweets, more creamy than fruity.
Palate: Barley rich, more bourbon influence. Clean and dry.
Finish: Long, barley rich, touch of hoi sin.
As an Irish drinker for many years I've started to re-discover Scotch later in life. This one I liked, floral and light, not for the smoke & peat monsters, but no burn at the finish , not overly oakey. It just my thing, I'll probably invest in something else from this distiller.

I've just bought a bottle of Glengoyne will post notes later but I must admit disgust when persons compare heavily peated whiskey to unpeated as though they should have the same nose and tasting notes. I often find they complement one another in a tasting session.

Light grassy/floral aromas. Bitter oak and green apple taste.

Can't say I'm a fan. Didn't excite me....didn't excite my nose or palate. I was looking for unique, defining characteristics. I don't why, I just was and I didn't find them.
Maybe it had something to do with the fact that prior to this bottle I had just finished a Clynelish 14yr and Belvenie 17yr Peated Cask. Now they were something else.
I guess in comparison I felt a little let down.

As a fan of Aberlour and similar sweeter whiskies, I was recommended to try this and it has quickly become a favourite. Very smooth

Went to the distillery some years ago and that was when I fell in love with single malt whiskey. This 10 year old is very smooth and full of complex flavours (without peaty or heavy smoke tainting). More depth and texture than the 12 year old Highland Park I also have. Glad I got the Glengoyne 10, absolute pleasure in a glass, with a dash of water.
kept me so busy wondering about the flavours I forgot about the tumultuous world around me

amazing flavours that come out of just one sip...
This stuff is dangerously drinkable, proceed with caution. If you like Aberlour or Macallan this will be one you will enjoy.
