Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

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.

    User Reviews of the Glengoyne 10 Year Old

    Overpriced 10yr

    Very much like Loch Lomond (neighboring distillery) in that it's certainly missing the mark somewhere. Perhaps this is simply the preferred 'recipe' in that area I'm not particularly a fan of. While smooth, it comes across as one-noted and lacking in depth and interest.

    The nose is confusing; at first it's stale and musty, then big floral notes and green apples come thru. The palate is slightly tart and dry, with a lingering finish of more green apple tartness and attic dust. Reminiscent of an inexpensive blend... smooth and easy drinking, but no depth of flavor to make it a memorable experience. For this price and more character, I'd look at a Tobermory 10 instead.

    Love the smoothness

    I love the smoothness which reminds me a bit of Irish whiskey. My first taste came from a bottle that had been opened sometime ago. Opening mine clearly revealed that it has to breathe for a while before the actual aromas and flavours come about. Now I really enjoy its sweetness. Definitely a excellent dram

    Challenging whisky

    Glengoyne has a special character to it, not your typical sherried whisky. Had the 12YO cask strength and it displayed the same kind of leather/rubber notes in the nose. Eventually, as you get used to it, toffee and spices and dark fruits come through. I like the fact that it's not a young whisky that's just "good" or "bad" which is unusual for a young whisky.

    Let it breathe

    On first opening its quite uninteresting and as previous reviewers have commented there's a definite smell of stale cigarettes. Most bizarre. The second visitation was much more pleasant with green apple and toffee sweetness. Not my favourite but drinkable nonetheless.

    8th January 2015

    Definitely to my taste!

    Clearly a whiskey which divides opinion. Other comments seem harsh considering the distilleries intention to produce seething NOT peaty. Lovely caramel & vanilla flavour with a bit of fruit. Drinkable!

    Why the price hike.

    A nice tasting malt. Bought it in November 2014 @ £27.42 but by December it costs £32.33. Fuel and transport cost have come down, so why does the cost rise so dramatically.

    Wonderful Scottish malt

    13th September 2014

    Superb

    having lived at the shores of Loch Lomond a few years back, this scotch actually reminded me of the smells and "flavours" of the area. A fine tipple for its price range, dry and crisp with smokey undertones

    Steve

    Very pleasant indeed.

    8th August 2014

    Dissapointed

    Really not up to par; I feel very let down after reading the comments on here and choosing to believe the better reviews. Oddly enough, this tipple improves slightly after decanting for a few days, however, after reading the comment about cigarette stubs, I have to agree I did note the unpleasant aroma for the several days after opening.

    ignore the daft remarks below, this is a lovely wee dram

    20th April 2014

    Soft and sweet

    Tried recently against many other whiskies and found it to be soft and sweet, vanilla with wood notes. Just lovely.

    31st March 2014

    Terrible

    I would like my money back please.

    First whiff hit me and was deeply unpleasant. Smells reminiscent of an old ashtray filled with day old (at least) cigarette butts. Second whiff revealed strong hints of uncoated, multivitamin tablets. The over sized kind that make you gag and have a horrendous after taste.

    I struggle to find anything worth while about this whisky and I would feel guilty giving it away. There are far, far better drinks out there for the money. Terrible is the first word that sprung to mind when I brought the glass up to my nose and it is the last word that hangs in my mind thinking about this abomination.

    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.

    Why compare heavily peate with unpeated

    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.

    26th February 2014

    Light and bitter

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

    4th August 2013

    Let down

    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.

    New Favourite!

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

    1st July 2013

    Oops forgot to add my rating...

    See above.

    Very Nice Dram

    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.

    Sunday drink

    kept me so busy wondering about the flavours I forgot about the tumultuous world around me

    24th October 2011

    Superb

    amazing flavours that come out of just one sip...

    24th October 2011

    Warning.....

    This stuff is dangerously drinkable, proceed with caution. If you like Aberlour or Macallan this will be one you will enjoy.

    17th September 2010

    Gorgeous

    So smooth and subtly sweet
