Interesting fact… Glengoyne 10 Year Old whisky spells its name whisky as it originates in Scotland. Had it been produced in America its name would be Glengoyne 10 Year Old whiskey, instead of 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.

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

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.

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