I had a little tasting of my own yesterday. This is part of a comparison I made on my new blog: maltsofpandemonium.blogspot.be
Colour: poppy gold.
Nose: Complex and refined, but still very fresh. Malty and sugary with notes of lemon, vanilla and chocolate. Scents reminiscent of dried fruits and roasted nuts on a background of spicy toasted oak. A very compelling nose, I could sniff at this dram for hours. Mouth: rich, dry and spicy. A full body, with orange peels, stewed apples, delicate notes of leather, spicy with touches of cinnamon and nutmeg and again, notes of sticky toffee. Finish: quite long and smooth, a full round taste with chocolate notes and a whiff of polished oak .
Conclusion: impressive, this is my favorite Glengoyne expression thus far. If I could have my pick, I would buy this one instead of the older 18yo expression.
