Glengoyne 12 Year Old Bottling Note

Completely unpeated (unusual in the highlands), this Glengoyne is soft, fruity and very quaffable. A fine single malt!

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose: Toffee apples, a little acacia honey, nectarine in syrup and spice, supported by toasted barley in the background.

Palate: Over-ripe grapes, honeyed with hints of vanilla, coconut milk and oak spice. Light touches of chocolate ice-cream.

Finish: Long, oily finish with lingering coffee notes.

User Reviews of the Glengoyne 12 Year Old


Wow this is good. Another lovely surprise in the advent calendar. A beautiful nose of honey and raisins leads to an even better taste and a warming finish. Quality stuff and definitely one for the shopping list

I have tried the 18 and the 10 year old but found this to be more distinctive. It is lovely neat. Even better with oatcakes and cheese. Well that is my preference. Def in my top 10

This is what i think is have done me to a whisky drinking man. Nearly the best 12yo you can get.

Sp - Beautiful

One of the best 12yr old malts around and definitely my favorite. Made even better with dark chocolate (70%)

ive been a great fan of Glengoyne for some 10 years. The 12 yr old is my favourite. The sherry cask comes through, and it's clean & fresh. Best neat, although during summer evenings a piece of ice (small) chills it and it's so sweet and smooth.

Bought a bottle at the local Waitrose and plan to go back for another to give to my son on his birthday.
Perfect with clear water.

£26 well spent!

Picked up a bottle in local Waitrose (end of line apparently). I get the cloves of previous correspondant. Sweet and worth returning for a second glass.

high sherry matured content I think. also unseated and elements of green apples I'd say

20th May 2015

One of the better 12 y.o Ive tasted in a long time.

Toffee, apples, citrus fruits, vanilla, coconut, a bit of sherry influence in the background.
Easy drinking but in the same time a bit challenging.

Not bad

Not me normal tipple , but very different tasting , normally I take me dram with a splash of water , this though is better neat. Somebody mentioned butterscotch and I never got that but it has a wee bit of Christmas about it. cloves or cinnamon something like that anyway !

nothing great

Plain taste, ordinary. Maybe the older bottles are better. Cheap though.

23rd October 2014

Very good

Very decent whisky. It has lovely nose and very fresh taste. One of my favourites in this price range. Better than 15yo IMHO.

Glengoyne 12

This is a seriously good whisky, it's not the most challenging of whiskies and it might not immediately strike you as a particularly outstanding malt but after a couple of drams you soon learn to appreciate its quality. There's a lot sweetness whilst at the same time incredibly clean & fresh with a good bit of sherry cask influence coming through. It's bursting with complex fruity flavours with a touch of fudge/butterscotch. The palette is every bit as good as the nose, it's so smooth, the flavour coats the mouth and the finish goes on and on, truly wonderful stuff.

Need another one

Seen the distillery, proved it's fine, bought. A fine whiskey, also for those who don't like whiskey at all... (due to the "smoke") ;-)
