Glengoyne's new 15 year old is a rich, rounded single malt, completely devoid of peat smoke thanks to air-drying the barley. It is aged in both bourbon and first-fill sherry casks, with some refill cask whisky thrown in for good measure.
Nose: Hints of candied lemon and a touch of butterscotch. Creamy cereal sweetness and porridge oats. Demerara sugar.
Palate: Oily, rich palate entry with notes of toffee popcorn, salted butter and hints of ground walnuts. Allspice and lemon rinds.
Finish: Oaky, malty finish.

Really good scotch. Easy to drink and has great flavors especially if you're introducing someone to single malts. Has a great sweet flavor with prominent apple coming through. Nice thick, oily feel and has a great finish which is actually similar to laphroaig 15 (just the creamy oily finish). Definitely a good one and for the price point at this age you simply can't pass it up.

It's interesting because of no-using peat. Very fresh, caramel-vanilla. Very drinkable. Different from others. But as for me - lacking of "wow".

I really enjoyed this whisky. It has a really clean, crisp flavour that lingers, but not like an after taste. Very nice, typical of a lowland malt although I'm more of a peaty island malt fan.

Really refreshing, with a nice oily mouth feel. The lemon and walnut are pronounced and pleasant. Wonderful malty finish.

My roommate moved to the other side of The Atlantic ocean and left an almost full bottle of this stuff behind. Artturi, you will be missed but I will remember you whenever enjoying this lovely dram. Excellent choice if one wants to buy a whisky with no smoke or peat at all.

If you are looking for a break from the obsession with peat, this is the perfect Scotch. It's not peated but it's very complex and perfect from start to finish. One of my favorite single malts now and I highly recommend

Im a new fan of Japanese whiskey but this is good. Has a smooth sweet taste like yamazaki 12, but the nose is oak. Not quite as complex or strong as yamazaki 12 but almost as good. 3 1/2 stars

The tasting notes are pretty spot on, there is definitely butterscotch flavours and Demerara sugar to the nose, a distinct oiliness with a hint of salted butter and walnuts, but unusually for a 43%ABV it appears to evaporate in the mouth to be breathed in rather than drunk down. No real alcohol burn but a definite warming of the throat and nasal cavity, very nice, easily drinkable and smooth with a lingering peppery smokiness on the tongue. Overall happy with this, although with purchasing from the Distillery it wasn't particularly cheap, but definitely superior to the 10YO.

My parents signed me up for a temporary subscription to a monthly scotch club as a birthday gift and I was very excited about it - partly because I live in Virginia where spirits are regulated under the firm hand of the ABC, so the scotch selection here is a joke. I have a book of scotch that lists what is supposed to be all known distilleries and single malts in existence, so whenever I travel out of state for work I try to go to nearby liquor stores so that I can pick up a scotch I've never had and check it off my list. My first scotch in the club was a mild disappointment because I'd had it before. But then....the next month....enter the 15-year Glengoyne. While I do appreciate the robust peaty scotches like Laphroig or Lagavulin or Oban or Talisker or Caol Ila, etc., they are in a class of their own and I tend to lean more towards the oaky scotches. That said, this bottle of Glengoyne was right up my alley. Okay, I'm downplaying it; this stuff is like the nectar of the gods to me. I do have Glengoyne checked off on my list, but I had it several years ago and I must've had the 12 year or I had a cold or my palette was having an off day or-- holy crap, this is some good scotch. The vanilla notes really do jump out and the creaminess of it just washes over my tongue. The first sip of this made my eyes involuntarily close and my palette had a tastegasm. If I was still single, I'd marry this scotch. If I could have even just one sip of this every single night for the rest of my life, I would be happy. Alas, I'm not sure when I'll even get another bottle of this so until then it is going to sit under lock and key, reserved only for special occasions.

Ignore the review posted by 'nice but plain' and appreciate a beautifully crafted everyday whisky. Honestly one of the best value whiskies you can buy today from a great wee distillery.

Very easy to drink whisky but at the same time it's very plain. It's very nutty, sweet, creamy and cereal. Almost no alcohol burn, even at 43% so yes, the word so abused is "smooth". But a lot of whiskies are smooth yet with certain character. Glengoyne 15yo is too plain for me. For me the 12yo is better as it has more character, I do remember the taste. Here I just remember it was easy and sweet. For me there is almost no finish at all. If you're looking for sweet and very easy to drink whisky - this is a good choice. It's well made. But if you want to experience something more, I would suggest for example Scapa 16 which is similar in taste and smoothness but has definitely more notes and tastes in it.
