This standard in-house bottling of Glengoyne is easily obtainable. It’s a supermarket whisky from the Highlands, distilled from barley completely void of peat which guarantees a delicate (rather Lowland style) whisky.
The nose is very fresh and soft, with malt and pretty sweet. I get oak, citrus, but also something salty. I even get subtle hints of butter and a tad of pure spirit. To round things up, there is also some almonds and hazelnuts present. Not earth shattering, but pleasant enough.
When rolling of the tongue, it’s lightly peppered, somewhat too oaky, but also light and clean. Fresh and sweet with cooked apples, freshly cut grass and some cinnamon.
While the finish is a little bit to punchy and spirity to my taste (meaning very oaky and drying), it does last very long.
This is your typical, easy drinkable, correctly priced entry malt.
