    I have to say that the 12-year-old is better than the 15-year-old. Hands down.

    Very good 12-year-old – nice flavours of apple, oak, coconut. Nice mouthfeel, amazing for just 12 yrs. Highly recommend!

    I’m new to whisky and I do prefer unpeated single malts. This is one of the best, especially in its price range.

    We found the distillery by accident many years ago - my husband absolutely loves this whisky in all categories, and we do have difficulty locating it. Many thanks so glad we have found you.

    This is a very interesting malt that I've read a lot about. I make it a point to try as many malts as I can so I bought a bottle when I saw it. I can't say it's my favorite but it is very good. Glengoyne is in the southern highlands. I've read that the disterilly is on the highland side of the road and he warehouse is on the lowland side of the road. That means that Glengoyne is distilled in the highlands and matured in the lowlands. As far as the whisky goes in my opinion on the nose it reminds me more of a light speyside than a rich highland. It is light and floral with hints of sweet nutty malt. On the palate there is nuts and fruits. There is a great whisky blog called where the writer described this as peanut butter and jelly in a glass. I never would have thought about that myself but is a perfect description. Floral with nutty malt and fruit. Tasty. The finish is of medium length, sweet with slight spice. Very good stuff that is worlds better than the more well known malts in this lighter style. I recommend it

    Having tried several single malts, and having always space for any of them, there are always some of those that emerges in our list of preferences for its quality on the palate. As I have commented in arran 14 item on TWE, this Glengoyne 12, being only a bit less complex, in my opinion, is a refined whisky on the palate, without lacks in savour, and continuing delivery the malt flavor that I love, not being submerged by other flavours. Very good single malt indeed, one of the best scotish single malts I have tried until now togheter with his brother Glengoyne 18 and Arran 14, and Glendronach12&18. Note that this whisky, as Arran, don’t have artificial colour (ARRAN 14 is a non chill-filtered too)

    A gift from family who took a tour of the distillery. A superb easy-drinking dram in the dessert style. Toffee nose, floral notes develop if left for 30 mins or so. The palate is a nice malt hit of toffee, Horlicks and Werthers Original. Again plenty of sweetness on the finish, perfect following a hearty meal. A little post script, the website states that E150 is used yet the distillery tour made a point of stating the colour is entirely natural.

    New emblem/crest, new packaging, new price, new label - SAME GOOD STUFF, consistent in quality through-out, tho' i miss the auld 12yo cask-strength. Aye, price i sthru the roof for ALL Scotch nowadays.

    I live very close to this distillery and have ignored it for years thinking that all the great scotches come from elsewhere. How wrong can you be? This is quite simply a beautiful dram that puts the established elite very firmly in their place. Wonderful.

    I would describe this as a very fine whisky. If you want a "knock your head off taste" then do not buy it. If you want refined and carefully made with skill, then this is for you. I think it represents great value for money for the quality

    I love all malts from the sweet spay-sides to the peaty Islays but here is a real gem!go buy a bottle you won't regret it I promise.
