General description

interesting and robust malt; tastes older than the 12 years would suggest

Nose

bright, already some oak sensible, a light sweetness, grassy and floral aromas

Palate

apples, grass and hay, clearly some oak

Finish

dry with some darker tones - almost like a dry white wine

Ein durch und durch feines Produkt!
Man erkennt wirklich beide Fässer. Kann die Nase kaum aus dem Glas nehmen.
Reife Zitrone bis roter Apfel. Etwas Honig. Dann klopfen die Sherryfässer an und machen die Sache komplexer.
Netter guter Standart, den vermutlich nicht jeder/jede auf dem Schirm hat.

General description

A 12yo Highlander from Glengoyne, famed for their unpeated single malt. Glengoyne is always very pure in style, allowing their high-quality, easy-drinking whisky to shine in its natural style.

Nose

Toffee apples, a little acacia honey, nectarine in sytup and spice, supported by coconut in the background.

Palate

Over-ripe grapes, honeyed with hints of vanilla, coconut milk, oak spice & shortbread.

Finish

A hint of sherry, soft oak and cinnamon spice. Very well balanced.

General description

Warm, round and smooth taste, with lots of vanilla and dried fruits.
Very easy drinking but balanced and rewarding, especially for an everyday winter dram, with hints of spring flowers and fruits and a pleasant slightly oily palate.
Worth the price for sure.

Een geur met groene appel, (zurig als de fles net open is) citroen en daarna toffee en een notige toon. Een fruitige smaak met een vleugje marsepein, lichte cacao, vanille en een lekker kruidig randje. Een net niet te bittere nasmaak met vanille en sinaasappel. Fijn!! De whisky wordt beter als de fles een tijdje open is.

Lovely smooth & rich. Good character & depth, well balanced. Fruity & creamy tones, very moreish!

Rich, sweet & spice, barley core, fruity tones, mulled wine, apricots in syrup, orange peel. A little waxy, plenty of warmth.

Palate

Honey, vanilla fudge, grapes, quite light, a little creamy with oatiness present. Spice gently builds into the finish.

Finish

Medium long, gentle oaky warmth, oily.

General description

Immediate sherry influence on the nose, fairly strong but some lemon and oak as well. Taste is light, much like the 10 yr, with stronger notes of orange and citrus - water brings out bitter orange peels. Sherry influence throughout including the finish and leaves the palate slightly oily. Not as noteworthy as the older offerings but does carry some value for money. Overall not a bad dram.

A rich, fruity Highlander, very smooth normally, though the 10-year-old can be harsh. Excellent choice for an introductory Scotch.
