Glengoyne 1972/2009 Malts of Scotland

by Oliver Klimek on December 13, 2010

Sherry hogshead 3195/2 – re-casked after bottling part of a sherry butt – 52.5%


My Tasting Notes:

Colour: Dark amber
Nose: Honey, prunes, raisins, vanilla, cinnamon, a hint of bitter almonds, becomes fresher with water.
Palate: Honey, tropical fruit, vanilla, cocoa, cinnamon and nutmeg.
Finish: Very long, fruity and slightly spicy.
Overall: Extremely complex and richly-flavoured, this is a terrific fruity luxury digestive to enjoy after your Christmas dinner.

Rating: 91/100 – Price Tag $$$$$ – Value for your Money $$$$$

It doesn’t have to be Christmas. It should be great for any festive event below 30°C ;)
