What's in a name? Glengoyne 17 Year Old whisky is called whisky because it's produced in Scotland. Were it from America it would be spelled Glengoyne 17 Year Old whiskey, rather than whisky.
Nose: Plummy, cherry liqueurs, sweet, rounded.
Palate: Very fruity, red currants, barley, red fruit sweetness.
Finish: Very sweet finish, a tad dry.
I love this whisky. The fruit hits you on the nose and keeps coming. There's a real intensity to it, and the finish has a sort of biscuity sweetness. It's like a cherry cheesecake.
I'm a big fan of this whisky too. I love the smoothness and the sweet treacle finish. Highly recommended
Amazing whisky, fantastically smooth. Superb distillery tour as well!
One of the very best whiskies I've ever tried - if you're not so much a fan of the medicinal smokey island malts, this soft, fruity, rich and warm masterpiece with hints of honey and caramel will be a winner. As the other reviewer says, the distillery tour is great; better mid week. Dont leave without a bottle of this bad boy! The guides wear awesome wee tartan skirts too. Not that that is any reason to go, of course.
I found this whisky to be a tad spicy for my liking, benefits from a small teaspon of water. Still a decent drop, but probably would not buy again.
