Glengoyne distillery was the first one for me to visit. We drove a car from Glasgow to Islay, the distillery is on the way. Glengoyne is delightfully situated at the foot of the mountain, from which flows the stream. Location is very Scottish. What is interesting distillery itself is qualified as the Highlands and actually whisky is distilled in this region, but matures in the Lowlands, which is across the street, which also forms the border between the regions.
It is surprising that nothing from Glengoyne hasn’t appeared on the a blog yet. Time to fix it, anyway with the release that is no longer produced. It is 17 years old, bottled officially, with 40% ABV. The natural color is a hallmark of the distillery. Now 17 years old has been replaced with 18 years old version. The last time I tried 17 years old I remember that I enjoyed it. I wonder how it will go now.

Glengoyne 17 years old

C: gold;

N: fresh, even slightly grainy and not particularly intense, slightly irritating the nostrils, I’ll give it a moment that it could get some good manners…, now it’s better, but still quite timid, sweet with vanilla and a touch of honey, toffee, hard candy, Haribo jellies, over the time traces of sherry, raisins, cherries, a little tobacco appears, later also fruits: apples, pears, some plums, dried apricots, fruit compote, apple and plums pie;

T: a little sparkles on the tongue, sweet with hard candy and elements of honey, toffee and caramel, raisins, prunes, fruit compote, apple compote, a touch of lemon peel, delicate traces of wood with ginger and bitterness;

F: medium long, fruity, with persistent bitterness.

Score: 83.

Glengoyne 17 years old is a nice dram. Rather gentle and calm which is traditionally typical for the Lowlands, but from Highlands this whisky is 😉 Good single malt for those who prefer subtle notes and don’t like peat at all, which is here in vain to look for. I miss a little higher ABV.

      Witam, witam! Moja ma 40% ABV. Rzeczywiście zdarza się, że na rynku występują whisky z różnym poziomem ABV. Przykładowo Glenfiddich 12 years old, który ostatnio opisałem miał 43% ABV, natomiast na rynku powszechnie dostępna jest 40% ABV. Generalnie wolę te wyższym poziomem, niosą ze sobą więcej wrażeń degustacyjnych. Pozdrowienia.

      Have a nice tasting Jeannette! 43% ABV should have a richer charakter. Slainte!

      Ja swoją kupiłem jakiś czas temu na lotnisku za ok. 50 Euro. Dziś na aukcjach można ją nabyć w okolicach 50 GBP. Pewnie, aby nabrała wartości musi upłynąć więcej czasu.
