Glengoyne 21 Year Old

Given the 100% sherry casks used by Glengoyne sherry is very much to the fore. If I were to criticise it then a slightly higher strength, say 46% could lift this dram to a higher plain.

ABV 43 %

Bottle size: 70cl

Price: £125

Nose 20/25 - sherry (obviously!) barley sugar, stewed apples

Taste 21/25 - honey on brown toast, sherry(!) and a hint of sulphur

Finish 21 /25 - longish although you might expect more from this age of spirit. Throughly enjoyable.

Balance 23 /25 - a top quality dram, ideal for a special occasion such a Christmas

Total 85/100
