The fruit flavours taste a bit artificial and the finish is one of the shortest I have experienced in a single malt, but for the rather cheap price it is okay-ish and a step up from the Springwood. – Rating: 74/100

Quite immature but still smooth because of the triple distillation, a dram for moments when you wish to avoid flavourfulness. – Rating: 67/100

Even afer 35 years the wood only contributes a nice spiciness without overpowering the fruit. – Rating: 88/100

This malt has a very nice fruity and creamy base that is enhanced by rather strong wood spices. – Rating: 85/100

Very floral, but in a good way. There is a minimal soapiness to it but it is too faint to call it a flaw. Quite unusual. – Rating: 84/100

Even though it has been fully matured in wine casks, the Bordeaux does not overpower the whisky. Very smooth on the palate but also forceful at the same time. – Rating: 85/100

Triple distillation and a refill cask make this an extremely subtle dram. You may well give it a try, if you like that ultra-light style, but this doesn’t cut it for me – Rating: 63/100

A smooth Lowland malt that is quite pleasant on the palate, but the finish is over much too soon. – Rating: 78/100

The only good thing I can say about this expression is that it is discontinued. If you happen to find a bottle, avoid it! This is a perfect example of an NAS statement used to disguise immature whisky. – Score: 55/100

Very complex, you can find something different in every dram. But still not my favourite. – Score: 82/100

It all started with Glenmorangie.since the 1990s the concept of multiple cask maturation of whisky ahs been established in the industry.

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.

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.

After my week on Islay I spent three days in Glasgow. Glasgow? Wasn’t there a whisky distillery somewhere nearby? Actually I had passed it when the coach from Kennacraig came into Glasgow on the Great Western Road, not far from Erskine Bridge.

A great ten days in Scotland have come to an end, and I am back home in Bavaria. My journey to Islay and Glasgow yielded lots of material for new articles and of course also some new bottles of whisky.

Scotland has by a large margin the highest amount of active distilleries in the world, so it is globally the most important whisky region. In terms of whisky, it is historically divided into several distinct regions.
