Glengoyne 10 Bottling Note

A soft, sweet 10 year old single malt from the Glengoyne distillery and a winner of a Gold Medal at the 2007 San Francisco World Spirits Competition.

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.

Glengoyne 10 Year Old Reviews

One of my favourites

This is a surprisingly good whisky, such an easy drinker. A great introduction to Glengoyne.

16th October 2020

Yummy Scotch.

If this wasn't alcoholic, I could drink it all day.

Fruity, creamy with a longish almost aquatic finish. It has something of Tobermory 10 in it like brussel sprouts, but in this case, very well done.

It very moreish. Highly recommend.

Butterscotch yummyness

Amazing dense butterscotch on the nose. Grass. Nougat and candied fruit on the palate with hay and minerality. Finish has a seaweed note — sounds bad but it’s really pleasant. This is eminently delicious.

25th September 2020

Solid entry level

Bought this and the 12 yo after visiting the distillery. The 10 seems a bit immature to me but still an excellent malt. Citrus, honeyed malt and spice. Actually quite hot. The 12 is splendid but on opening has a cabbage note just like the 18 but it soon disappears. 12 yo is 5/5 as is the 18. Both smoother and richer than the 10. An amazing distillery!

Happy Time

A good whiskey to enjoy with friends and family. Love the taste and it's very smooth and aromatic. One of the finest in this range. I must say 1 time every one should try it.

1st September 2020

A solid whisky

A good solid whisky . Light , sweet and easy on the pallet . Not the best in the Glengoyne range but for the price it’s an excellent whisky which always goes down well with guests. You won’t be disappointed

Has a Rubber cork And smells horrible as soon as you open

Not even close to any single malt nor it’s price. Has an awful nose. To make matters worse, really worse, Glengoyne 10 has a rubber cork instead of natural cork and this rubber cork imparts a nasty rubber smell the moment you open it. Once you get that in your nose it is impossible to enjoy rest of the pour. Horrible to say the least. Surprised none have noticed this or may be as its poor overall anyway, no one bothered. Will try to decant the remaining and see if that improves it. Like the sweetish milder taste though... but any day for a dram like this, will stick to Glenmorangie 10

22nd August 2020

A gentle rollercoaster of a whiskey

Nose: Tinned sweets by the quart: sour drops.

Palate: Hints to burnt butterscotch but instead desways into near sherry wooded notes. Nicely done.

After: It declines from the same, and its palate experience gives it permission. Nicely done.

Citrus apple that grows on you

Chose to open this bottle as highly recommend by a friend who lives “just up the hill from the distillery”. I have have to say I wasn’t impressed to start with but it’s growing on me. I get the red apple now but no toffee in my opinion. Just the overwhelming initial impression of citrus. Wouldn’t say smooth either but I do enjoy the high, almost acidic aftertaste now, which does last forever.

30th May 2020

Beautiful sweetness

Great whisky. Sweet, light and complex at the same time.

15th May 2020


Il keep this short. A good solid dram, for the price tag this is a great everyday drinker. Good balanced flavour, nice finish and great price tag. Will be buying a bottle

22nd March 2020

Best single malt Highland for your buck

You can't get much a much better Highland single malt for this price.

The natural colour is beautiful. A full bodied Highland with a smooth finish. Excellent scotch.

Clean and elegant.

Juicy red apples, juicy white grapes, juicy fresh cut grass on a juicy spring day, young juicy malt like pastry dough. Sweet toffee and brown sugar. Custard.
Clean and elegant.


Glengoyne, wilt thou marry me!

7th May 2019

meh... skip it

Super disappointed in this dram. How anyone calls this smooth is beyond me. The finish is extremely harsh and lasts forever. Glenmorangie 10 is infinitely better... and cheaper.

23rd November 2018

Very fine whiskey which I thoroughly enjoyed.

Fantastic dram.. I enjoyed Glengoyne 10yo immensely. The fruity aroma and creamy sip did not prepare me for the lovely sharp tang which popped up in the woody aftertaste. I may need to develop my taste for toffee as I didn't get it immediately but that wouldn't stop me from entertaining other whiskey lovers with this worthy distillation.

2nd September 2018

Quality !!

Perfect every day drink , if your looking for super bold and complex it may not give you what you want though . This whiskey is almost perfect for whay it is , absolutely no off flavors and great texture. One of my favorites.

27th December 2017

sheer elegance.

a sublime balance of sherry casks and distillery (fresh fruity apples) character.

- a very charming young malt, and a personal favourite.

(decanting might be an idea for this one. Let it breathe for a few days after opening.)

4/5 stars.

26th November 2017

It's ok.

Allen, Milnsbridge.

All Whiskies are subjective, all I could say about this one is it's ok, by no means a bad one, a little over rated and certainly over priced.

8th September 2017


Very impressed. I had never heard of this one. I drink Glenfidich. But this whiskey is very good. One can smell the apples and toffee immediately. Very good. And comes from the Macallan line.

15th July 2017

r e d a p p l e p e r f u m e

AROMATIC and not overly ripe red and yellow apples; fresh fruity succulent sherry. Creamy toffee.
Little bit of bite to the oak.

I found myself giggling with the first glass: it's got your average calvados beat in the apples department, i can tell you that. Collapsed on the second day, leaving dried prunes, yeast and a hint of cigarette butts in place of orchard and Oloroso. Went through figs and apricots on its way back up to its initial freshness. With my bottle that took four days.

Nose fills out further with a drop of water, but at 40% abv the palate i feel can't take it. I drink this neat.

High quality whisky.

13th May 2017


god yes but let it breathe for a few days big change in taste and smell

1st December 2016

Let it breathe

I strongly suspect the couple negative reviews are from people who tasted it from a just opened bottle. Many whiskies need to breathe, and this one even more so for whatever reason. There really is a stale ashtray aroma from a just opened bottle, but that will go away completely.

7th August 2016


Quite nice, would not have taken it for a 10 year had I not seen the bottle. Make no mistake, this is a Lowland in everything but name, so expect something very smooth and very floral.

3rd July 2016


la relacion precio calidad es muy buena, siendo un whisky muy suave, balanceado y facil de tomar!! 100% recomendado

29th May 2016


Thank you Kati, so smooth !

My favourite. Great and smooth

11th March 2016


Impressive for a ten year old.

Chris and Tony

Purchased a bottle of 10yr Malt on our visit to Distillery 2014, expensive but great, not harsh great nose and good on the back of the throat, will soon be ordering another.

21st December 2015

Good starting point

really enjoy this fine smooth whisky

28th August 2015

Give me spice

Good starting mark for the glengoyne range, which carries a age.

30th June 2015

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.

15th March 2015

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

18th February 2015

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.

26th January 2015

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!

23rd December 2014

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.

23rd December 2014

Wonderful Scottish malt

13th September 2014


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

21st August 2014


Very pleasant indeed.

8th August 2014


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.

18th July 2014


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


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.

13th March 2014


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.

27th February 2014

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.

10th July 2013

(Rating for 'New Favourite!')


1st July 2013

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.

9th December 2012

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.

9th December 2012

Sunday drink

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

24th October 2011


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

24th October 2011


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

17th September 2010


So smooth and subtly sweet
