Glengoyne 1998/2009 Malts of Scotland

by Oliver Klimek on April 19, 2010

Dark Sherry Cask – 54.5%


My Tasting Notes:

Color: Dark mahogany
Nose: Very intense, ripe berries, dried fruits, tea
Palate: Quite dry, berries and tea again, nutmeg, allspice
Finish: Rather long, fruity and dry
Overall: This whisky has a “million dollar nose” suggesting a very rich sherry bomb. But the palate does not quite meet the expectations raised by the nose as it lacks complexity. Given the extremly dark color after only eleven years, I can’t help thinking that this cask was bottled in a rush to save before the sherry killed all the whisky-ness. Interesting nevertheless.

Score: 83/100 – Price Tag $$$$$ – Value for your Money $$$$$

That must be
Cask 1130 – destilled 01.04.1998, bottled 08/2009, 54,5%
(there are 4 different casks – 1130-1133 – bottled by Malts of Scotland between 08/09 and 02/10. Those could only be indentified throug the acl. strength)
