This expression is part of Glengoyne’s core lineup which is matured in first-fill sherry casks and bottled at 43% ABV.
Nose: Big, sweeping sherry notes full of gunflint and slate up front developing into cherry, pineapple, prunes, toffee, and banana bread.
Palate: Very sweet sherry on entry with a tart pineapple coming through nicely followed by raisins, chalky slate, and peppery oak.
Finish: Creamy vanilla and bittersweet sherry – fairly dialed down from the palate.
Rating: 87/100 – A very nice sherry-bomb – would love to taste this at a higher proof.
Value for the money: These look to retail around $125-$135 which is a pretty decent price for what you get.
