  • Excerpt: The somewhat oily palate features quite lively spices, raisins, hazelnuts, and oak. The finish is medium in length and spicy to the end, with cocoa powder.

  • Intro:

    This is a 15 year release from Glengoyne, as a part of their core product range.

  • Nose:

    Honey, lemon tart, fresh baked bread. Vanilla, faint caramel, some light pepper.

  • Taste:

    Medium mouthfeel, no real heat. Sweet vanilla, light white pepper, bready and cake-y. Some lemon meringue, very desserty. Sherry influence is light. Lots of butter cream.

  • Finish:

    Medium length, but sweet with some nice vanilla character. Not really complex.

  • Overall:

    This is a good, no nonsense dram. It's easy sipping, not terribly complex, and doesn't have any big flaws.

  • Score:

    6
