Glengoyne is one of the only Scottish whiskies to be distilled from completely unpeated malt - the malt is allowed to dry naturally before fermentation and distillation begin, resulting in an elegant, medium-bodied style.
I love this whiskey always reminds me of visits to loch lomand and feeding the ducks when my children were little I toured the distillery and since then always have a wee dram in the house My children have aged now and are all grown up but flavour of whiskey remains the same, true water of life

Pleasant and I will give it a *4*. A lite bite!
We still have kept some(empty now!)miniatures from Christmas so we remember which whiskey we loved. This was one of them!

It would be sad if indeed Goyne-10 is compared to - or tasted anything like [Bushmills] Irish whisk(e)y. For now, i will stick to the old 12yo Cask Strength Goyne of auld .... another sad dearly-departed bottle ... - Is this a millenium theme ? Old good bottles die off every year !

There is a single malt out there for everyone and this one is mine. So smooth and an absolute pleasure to drink. A great bottle to introduce someone in to the world of single malts.

Think VM is being a bit harsh - i find GG10 a superbly drinkable dram. Not everyone wants fireworks in their whisky, and some of us really appreciate the skill in distillation, maturation and blending that it takes to make a whisky this smooth and drinkable. I have tasted hundreds of whiskies and I think that in its price range this is one of the best malts anywhere.

Unremarkable Southern Highland single malt. Pleasant on the nose and easy to drink - and that's about it. Light, mellow and inoffensive, Glengoyne 10yo is for those who don't want much "punch" or personality from their whisky. For me, however, this does very little. The fruity and woody tones are nice, but there are so many single malts out there that have much more to offer. 6 out of 10

Lovely, Highly recommended

Oh yes, it's smooth, but I prefer to say "tender" in its case. Indian summer'y; rotten apples, tea, flowers, raisins, stables. Reminds me of JWBL. Brilliant. The taste of a lullaby.

Went to the distillery and did the tour. A fantastic whisky if not on the dear side. Easy to drink the whole bottle.

Very light and sweet, definitely one of the smoothest I've tried. Thanks!

The smoothest one I ever tried! Only Bushmills single malts can be compared with that!
