Glengoyne 25 Year Old Bottling Note

Introduced in early 2014, this is a 25 year old single malt from the Glengoyne distillery - an addition to their core range. The Highlands distillery uses unpeated malt for this whisky, which is then matured for a quarter of a century in Sherry casks.

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose: Big notes of sherry-soaked fruit up front - raisins, figs and oranges. This is followed by wafts of toasted almonds and classic notes of old leather.

Palate: Vanilla and dark chocolate open up the palate. Sherry comes through yet again, but this time in the shape of rich, well spiced fruit cake. Hints of orange and oak round it off.

Finish: The finish lasts with notes of red fruits and cracked black pepper.

Overall: A very easy dram to get lost in, to take your time with on every step.

Glengoyne 25 Year Old Reviews

Amzazing stuff. Best during the holidays.

Great stuff. My go to with friends and family after a nice Thanksgiving Turkey or a Christmas goose. Could drink this year round but I prefer bourbon in the summer out here in Arizona.

fabulous - buy it!

flipping gorgeous stuff. Have 21 year old and cask strength and both are great but this is just fab. Bought for 25th wedding anniversary and tried sample first. can't wait to drink more of it when the anniversary comes around.

Fantastic

For the price this whisky is my favorite. In fact, if you double the price its still my favorite!

Fantastic...that is the only adjective I can think of. Fantastic indeed. Worth every penny.

Just received the 25 year old. I originally purchased the 21 but changed my mind before it shipped figuring I won't miss the money after a week or so. Let me say...the 25 is the best I have ever had. Smooth, rich, flavorful, well made....just perfect. It is a stunner at the price and I would say actually inexpensive. I love Macallan 25 but that is over $1700 while this is less than $300. This whiskey holds its own against the big boys and frankly, is better in many respects in my opinion. Well done Glengoyne!

Lovely wee dram

Toured the distillery, and had a taste across the line, the 21 and 25 were amazing, brought some 18 year home, wish I had grabbed a 25 yr too

Wow!

This is the benchmark, I haven't found any whisky that compared.

Byebye Macallan

I was liking the Macallan 25 until I tried my hands on this. Absolute stunner. My current favorite.

Might be the best out there...

One of the best I´ve ever had! Smooth, fruity, sirup - fantastic.

Extra special 25 year old whiskey at a cracking price

I will sum this whiskey up simply, "buy buy buy ! ! ! "If you can get it around £240 then snap up as many as you can afford because this will rocket in price. In my opinion as good as dalmore 25 year old and not far off Macallan 25 Year old and we all know how expensive they are !!

Macallan killer...

Tired of all the hype behind Macallan 25... This scotch is 3x cheaper and offer as much dimension (I've tried both). It's a bit expensive for a 25, yet not overpriced for 2016 standards. If you can afford it, go for it.. for the rest take the sample and stop complaining.

Also... Please stop comparing it to Macallan 18.. it's quite an insult to the distillery.

One of the best I ever had!!!

Excellent!!! Very smooth.

Nothing off, just not enough there for the $$$

I got this because I wanted to know what a really great sherry matured whisky would be like. And for me it was just a bit too subdued. Honestly it tastes like it's gone a bit flat. I get the quality, I get some of the flavor, but it's so far in the background... I feel like it would fit nicely at $125 a bottle.

Try before you die

Can we rate a whisky 6 stars?
Gave it to 5 friends to try.. They all wanted to buy a bottle. Among the 10 whiskys you must try before you die..

The Best!

By far the best whisky on the market today!

Just wonderful.

Sitting in front of an old film, loved one by my side, the refined warmth of this dram completes and complements the scene perfectly. Expensive and so something to be savoured rather than knocked back.

Just bear in mind Macallan 25 year old sherry oak in three times the price - no contest!

Really long finish

The nose is a warm welcome. The flavor is intense and complex, triggering all the senses your palette has - and the finish is really, long. As said by others here; this is a BIG whisky and if you want to celebrate a special occasion, or just reward yourself on a cold evening - this whisky will take care of it. I recommend you to try it wit some dark chocolate and a cup of Yirgacheffe coffee.

the mymic

Flawless, the thickest richest sherry I've ever tried. Highly recommended.

17th September 2015

Wow!

48% and you wouldn't know it! Hard to find a fault with this one. Lovely nose, rich palate with a loooooong finish! Lovely!

Hi there! As far as we can tell, this is a worldwide release as part of their core range, so no exclusivity to speak of. Hope that helps! --The Chaps at Master of Malt

Did Glengoyne produce this for worldwide release or exclusive to any particular region?

Beautiful and rich

Drinking this now . . . being a fan of Glengoyne whisky makes this review very easy, the 25 yr old is simply more of the core strengths of Glengoyne, but so much sweeter, richer and fuller in flavour. It's a BIG whisky ! It's clear from the first nose that it's a far more complex and richer whisky than the 18 year old (one of my favourite daily tipples), lots of sherry, cinnamon, orange and a burnt oak/deep fruit.
The first taste is old, dried fruit, like fruit steeped in sherry, vanilla and a delicate spicy oak. The finish is very long, drying slightly with more dried fruits and maybe cooked orange.
Very, very nice and well worth the £240 cost. First nose and taste tell you this is a magnificent whisky and seriously rich and full of flavour, just delicious !
