Tasting notes
Taster   Michael Jackson
Nose: Very aromatic. Smells like a freshly cut tree. Resiny. Lemon skins.
Palate: Dry creaminess. Vanilla pods. Cinnamon. Tropical fruits. Paw-paw.
Finish: Like biting into a tree bark. Hot, spicy, flavours. Cloves?
Comment: A rather eccentric version of Glengoyne. Very distinctive. A digestive after Thai food or even a curry?
Taster   Dave Broom
Nose: Sweet, honeyed and woody. Water brings out honey nut cornflakes, fruit and nut, oak, clover and a whiff of sap and the farmyard.
Palate: Soft and quite honeyed. Toasted almonds, rose, dolly mixtures. Sweeter than standard Glengoyne.
Finish: Sweet, but oak takes charge.
Comment: Scottish oak veneer? A fascinating experiment, but the really interesting malt, Glengoyne matured in Scottish oak refill, is yet to come.
