I'm writing this review as i begin a week of being on-call at work (meaning i can't drink, so it may sound a bit longing and desperate!
I have a tendancy to see a bottle of whisky with a name i havent tried, and upon gazing at the price i usually end up buying it. That was the case here with the Glengoyne 10 year old. Now this can lead to a bottle of enjoyment, or struggling to get through the sips. However i'm pleased to say that this was one of the successful bottle purchases!
I enjoy smooth whiskies, and this fell right in to that catergory for me. Its taste was soft and simple, there wasn't too much going on when you took a sip. It didnt batter your senses with a bundle of tastes, it kept it straightforward and gave you just enough to keep wanting more. I'd say it is a refreshing and very summer orientated malt, but like i have it can be enjoyed all year round!
It's easily available, one of the standard bottlings around, and being like that means that sometimes bottles can be overlooked. However if this was to be overlooked then it would be a big mistake in my humble opinion. It's a wonderful and simplistic introduction to the Glengoyne malts, and it's a range that i will be exploring more in the future thanks to the experience i had from this.
