Scotch Single Malt - Highland - 2013
International Wine & Spirit Competition
What's in a name? Glengoyne 21 Year Old whisky is called whisky because it's produced in Scotland. Were it from America it would be spelled Glengoyne 21 Year Old whiskey, rather than whisky.
Nose: Oak, barley, red fruits.
Palate: Barley and oak, possibly erring on the side of too much oak. Winter spice, cider.
Finish: Oak, barley.
The Glengoyne 21y/o is by far the best Scotch whisky available today for the price. It is complex and tasty. There just aren't enough "O's" in SMOOTH to describe a dram of this treat. Knowing the lads that make this whisky treasure, all their love and talent comes through in giant terms. Who needs loads of smoke and peat? Give me true malt done well. Highland cognac it is.

Pitted fruits and gingery spices, marvelously married. Smooth yet complex.

Matured in sherry for all of it's life. That's rare and delicious

I read a review saying that the 17 year old was better and that I should ignore the 21-year old. Having tasted it I can only say that that review was wrong. The 21-year old is too different to compare.
The 17-year old is smooth and easy to drink.
The 21-year old is a lot more warm and complex, a bit too much oak and a bit dry, but if you like that, then it is perfect.
