Nose: The Glengoyne 35yo has a rich full nose with fantastic depth. The classic Glengoyne apple character is at its heart, with complementary notes of papaya, mango and coconut giving a beautiful scent that can only come with decades in oak. Aged leather, Victoria sponge, dried citrus peel, honeycomb and saffron all add to the complexity of this incising nose.
Palate: A great oily texture that instantly coats the mouth with a burst of fruit. A whisky to hold on to the palate for a long times as it keeps developing, with dried fruit, floral notes and gentle spice becoming almost creamy after time.
Finish: The tropical fruit intensity returns and lingers at the back of the throat while the whisky becomes slowly drier; with liquorice, brown sugar and dark chocolate beautifully balanced. A whisky not to be rushed.
