Glengoyne 17

Postby dramtastic » Mon Oct 18, 2010 1:04 am

Hi All,

Has anyone tried this, if so your thoughts would be appreciated including the kind of tasting profile I could expect. Thinking of buying this as one of my duty free purchases.

Thanks in advance

A rich core of semi-sweet maltiness that spreads across the palate quite gently (a typical Glengoyne trait, that). Sometimes, I'd swear there's a hint of lurking earthiness as well. Lovely whisky, all told, but not a 'knock-your-socks-off' sort of pour by any stretch of the imagination. Very well balanced and all too drinkable.

It's been years since I had this but I think TDD has given you an excellent description, including the earthiness.
