Insider knowledge: Glengoyne 10 Year Old whisky is named whisky by virtue of the fact it's from Scotland. If distilled in America the spelling would be Glengoyne 10 Year Old whiskey, as opposed to 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.
So smooth and subtly sweet
This stuff is dangerously drinkable, proceed with caution. If you like Aberlour or Macallan this will be one you will enjoy.
amazing flavours that come out of just one sip...
kept me so busy wondering about the flavours I forgot about the tumultuous world around me
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.
