Review #646 | /r/Scotch Review #221 – Glengoyne 15yr

The Schtick: This is a 15 year release from Glengoyne, as a part of their core product range.

Distiller: Glengoyne

Bottler: Glengoyne

ABV: 43% ABV

Age: 15 Years

Source: Sample

Nose: Honey, lemon tart, fresh baked bread. Vanilla, faint caramel, some light pepper.

Taste: Medium mouthfeel, no real heat. Sweet vanilla, light white pepper, bready and cake-y. Some lemon meringue, very desserty. Sherry influence is light. Lots of butter cream.

Finish: Medium length, but sweet with some nice vanilla character. Not really complex.

Overall: This is a good, no nonsense dram. It’s easy sipping, not terribly complex, and doesn’t have any big flaws.

Thanks for reading!
