This is Glengoyne’s answer to Aberlour A’bunadh, and it is a good one. There still is a youthful edge to it but the first fill sherry aromas are wonderful. – Rating: 88/100

Despite being 12 years old, this dram feels a bit immature to me, the taste profile is not unpleasant but rather generic. – Rating: 72/100

A thick and delicious dram from a Pedro Ximenez sherry cask. – Rating: 87/100
March 8, 2012
Full-bodied and rich in flavour but the wood influence is quite prominent. – Rating: 84/100

A rich and full dram from a rather unusal amontillado cask. Some savoury flavours add another dimension. – Rating: 86/100

Rich and creamy, sweet and fruity, and a little spicy: There is a lot to discover in this excellent old malt. – Rating: 89/100

A very rich sherry monster with a fantastic nose. The palate lacks a little depth, despite the driness you can feel that it is still rather young. – Rating: 85/100

Despite the dark colour, the sherry is not overwhelming but of course very noticeable. The whisky lacks a bit of complexity but it is still very enjoyable. – Rating: 85/100

This Glengoyne gives very coherent impressions on nose and palate. It is amazingly complex for its rather young age. – Rating: 86/100

I’m not absolutely convinced by this malt. All parts of the tasting experience leave a somewhat shy impression even though the general plavour profile is rather pleasant. – Rating: 79/100

Extremely complex and richly-flavoured, this is a terrific fruity luxury digestive to enjoy after your Christmas dinner. – Rating: 91/100

The taste reminds me of German Bratapfel, an oven baked apple with a filling of nuts, raisins and spices that is usually served around Christmas. Quite complex and quite enjoyable. – Rating: 84/100

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. – Score: 83/100

The wood spicyness is a bit too dominant for my taste, it takes quite a bit of water to soften it down. But still quite a nice dram. – Score: 81/100

I was a little disappointed with this one. It’s hard to pin it down, but somehow it lacks “depth”. But I am sure that some will find it excellent, it’s just not quite my taste. – Score: 82/100

Just like last year I took the opportunity to combine a few days of mini holiday in London with attending the Whisky Exchange Whisky Show.

After the first blind tasting round with only Scotch single malt whiskies, most competitors also signed up for the ‘Freestyle’ tasting.

I have done some number crunching with the bottle data in the Whisky Monitor to see if there is a noticeable trend how independent bottlings do for a specific distillery.

During my Scotland whisky trip I made quite a lot of experiences that are not really worthy of an entire blog post but should not go unmentioned nonetheless.

In the immediate surroundings of Glasgow there are two distilleries, Auchentoshan and Glengoyne. I already visited Auchentoshan last year, so it was more or less obvious that I would see Glengoyne now.
