Glengoyne 18 Year Old

Sorry about this...

We can't actually ship Glengoyne 18 Year Old to you in United States at the moment. We're working on a solution.

Glengoyne 18 Bottling Note

Introduced in 2012, Glengoyne 18 Year Old was revamped to replace the Glengoyne 17 Year Old. From the Highlands of Scotland, this single malt is matured in a mix of refill sherry casks and a generous portion of first-fill sherry casks. The packaging shows off the stunning golden tone and inviting glow imparted by the lengthy maturation. This is a wonderfully warming whisky for sure and an essential for any sherried whisky fan.

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose: Hints of soft spice and dried peels. A little apricot, honey and vanilla.

Palate: Creamy custard and dried peels. Allspice, manuka honey and hints of butterscotch.

Finish: Creamy caramel and malt. Candied peels.

Glengoyne 18 Year Old Reviews

Bought a bottle at the distillery. Amazing. Savored it for as long as possible. One of my favorites.

Does it get any better than this?

Very glengoyne

Iv tried the 10 12 15 and generally I do like glengoyne. For bang for buck your getting a decent dram so I came into this excited.

It's very creamy, very smooth and inviting. Everything seems to mix well. Cream, apples, honey, maybe a little brown sugar? Good little finish aswell, not short but does leave a nice taste afterwards.

All in all, impressed with this one. Going to give it a 4 star.

An absolute delight!

Well balanced, subtle hints of apple and spices on the nose. SO smooth. A truly enjoyable dream that doesn’t muck about. Just sit back, close your eyes and reflect on the day. At this price point would gladly buy 2 at a time.

An outstanding 18 beauty!

Wow, had this as my birthday present. Have enjoyed every sip of it! Beautiful on nose, palate and after taste. My new favourite in 18 year range - also price is excellent :D

An 18 year old with some heft

Phenomenal but not a typical sherry-bomb as the sherry is balanced with the whisky, rather than running amok all over it. Very, very good and with a lot of substance, good spices in there, good heavy mouthfeel, wonderful tastes on the palate but with some definite surprises. I've tried numerous 18 year olds, this might be the pick of them (it's a coin flip between this an Glendronach Allardyce).

Pick of the Highlands

A wonderful whisky my pick of all the Glengoyne whiskies currently in production. I still have some 17 year old too, to my mind the 17 is a better dram. But if you are not a fan off peat smoke in your whisky, then this is the whisky for you.

Soooooooo smooth... Like drinking silk...

Like drinking smooth, caramel, butterscotch silk... So glad I went with this instead of the 18 yo Glenfiddich. An absolute pleasure from nose to sip to finish. So deep in flavour. My new favourite.

12th October 2019


Spice cake, honey and rich, dark fruit, with a long velvet finish. Superb for an 18yo at this price point.

16th May 2019

Excellently good value for money

Good nose and pleasurable finish. It is a joy sipping this liquid together with friends under a starry night.

Your new favorite

Fantastic whiskey! Round and mild, can easily replace your favorite XO cognac or Zacapa rum in front of the flames an late evening.

Flew through a smaller bottle of this. Had to buy a 70cl as it was just so good.
Salty sweet and smooth, tastes like a lot of older stuff inside, superb depth of flavour.

17th February 2019


It was a big shock at the first sipping, giving the fact that this whisky is quite chip. It feels like the big expensive guys out there when you get to taste that one! Highly reccomended

24th May 2018


Very nice whisky with big flavours of coffee,marzipan/toffee and walnut.Amazing balance and fullness of flavours.One of best 18 yr olds out there!!Great stuff!!😁

3rd May 2018

Great dram

Awesome Whisky. A hint of chocolate, raisins, green apples, caramel and vanilla.

12th March 2018

Great whisky

I bought a bottle to my cousin for his 50th anniversary. I had a few other choices, but after tasting this one I was sure he'd like it too. And he did. Very warm, long taste, wonderful balance. Highly recommended!

10th March 2018

Better then Glenmorangie 18 beats Their Signet too

A Little Disappointment for Us

I have been in Glengoyne Distillery with my girlfriend on the 14th of June in 2017. We joined the wee tasting tour. We had tasted 12 year old and 18 year old Glengoyne. Both of them lacks of complexity. Before getting there, we drank Higland Park 18, GlenDronach 18, Glenfarclas 15 in Edinburgh. All of them are better than Glengoyne 18. If I hadn't tasted Glengoyne 18 at the distellery I would definitely buy a bottle. After tasting it I just bought a miniature of Glengoyne 15. I admit batch variation can effect the reviews. I don't think a bad batch can be served at the distellery. I know every whisky cannoisseur and renowned whisky sites gives higher points to this whisky but I'm not sure at all as well as my girlfriend.

Excellent dram!

My summary says it all.

19th June 2017

Great. Great. Great!

A delight for the drinkers. Loved it!

10th May 2017


Complex and tasty. Picking up some banana on The nose and great Spice on The palate. A great dram to sit down and experience.

23rd February 2017

My wifes new favourite

So smooth and tasty that even my wife likes it!!!

25th January 2017

Rivalled by none and at a good price

Probably the best whisky I have tasted to date.
The smoothness on the palate allows for that time to taste the flavours while still enjoying the warm of a good dram!

15th June 2016


A really, really good sherried malt! Wonderful balance and so smooth. Highly recommended!

6th June 2016

Modern Sherry

Modern in both presentation and content. This was a great sherried scotch, good finish, clean, seemed a bit thin. Let it sit a long time. Almost no water if any.

Good price for an 18, most are over-priced especially when there are 14/15 year bottles as good or better.

2nd June 2016

Good Price for a nice dram

I like the nose. Vanilla and brown sugar.
I found it rather spicy. I miss a certain sweetness.
A solid whisky. The pricetag is reasonable for its age.

28th May 2016

impressive stuff.

I,m a speyside man mostly but having tried the 10, 15 , and now the 18 y.o I,m impressed with this whisky and as I live in Glasgow I hope to visit this distillery very soon.everybody should try this .

19th April 2016

Just shy of perfection!

Having been a longtime fan of the 17 year old, I was hesitant. I nosed hints of dried apple, cinnamon, orange peel, vanilla and candied pecans. Wonderful mouth and immediately reminded me of christmas and the smell of figs. Carmel, toffee and biscuits were the warming finish.

The distillery was great, and I would recommend it to anybody in the vicinity of Glasgow.

9th January 2016

Golden drops

A light friend, fabulous and gentle. Softly spiced, hints of apricot and vanilla. Notes of caramel. Candied finish.

15th October 2015

Excellent Whisky

I have tried this at the distillery twice and also at home, it has an deep intense flavour. I would recommend pouring into the glass and leaving to sit for a good 30-45 mins as the flavour really opens up. One of my favourite drams from one of the best distilleries in Scotland.

15th January 2014

Chief Boozer in Springfield, Missouri

I first drank it in The Ablanach, a fine whisky bar in Edinborough. I like it because it has the slightly sweetish aftertaste I love in the too-expensive (for me) Balvenie 21-year-old. Good stuff at a good price!
