Tasting notes
Taster   Dave Broom
Nose: Fresh, sweet and quite light with cream, coconut, baked banana. Water brings out clover honey, jasmine, cucumber and very light ginger.
Palate: Sweet and light. Very clean and lifted with enough going on in the centre to give it good balance and feel.
Finish: Minty.
Comment: Amazingly fresh for such an oldie. Much prefer this style of Glengoyne to the sherried monsters which tend to drown the distillery character.
7.8
Taster   Martine Nouet
Nose: Perfumy. Starts with cereal notes entwined with fruit and oak. Barley sugar, peardrop, gooseberry, polished floor. Then herbal notes break through. Linden tree.
Palate: Good velvety feel stiffened by grippy oak.
Finish: Dry, spicy, oaky.
Comment: The nose promised smoothness, the palate delivered dry oakiness. Water cuts the edges but enhances bitterness and spices.
