This is a 14 year expression from Glengoyne that was distilled in 1996 and bottled in 2010 at 43%.
Nose: Bright, young sherry with vanilla, ripe strawberries, and watermelon. Light and fruity overall.
Palate: Subtle sherry with young oak profile mixed with a bit of pear and vanilla.
Finish: Fades rapidly leaving behind traces of virgin oak.
Rating: 80/100 – Would make for a good intro scotch for someone as it’s very light and approachable, but doesn’t make for too interesting a dram.
Value for the money: This appears to have retailed around $85 which is an easy pass. Should be priced around $50 or so in my opinion.
