Scotch Malt Whisky Society 26.7 An Absolute Cracker
Single Malt - Scotland - 54.50%
8 Tastes old.Superb. Refined and complex. Still so lively and fresh. Hard to leave…

Glengoyne 1972
Single Malt - Scotland - 46.00%
7 Amazingly fresh for such an oldie. Much prefer this style of Glengoyne to the sherried monsters which tend to drown the distillery character.

Glengoyne 14 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 40.00%
7 Just get the feeling that bottling at a slightly higher strength might have given it the kick it needs for the palate to balance the nose.

Glengoyne Burnfoot
- Scotland - 40.00%
7 Just a little thin and lacking in substance

Glengoyne Glenguin Shiraz Cask Finish
- Scotland - 48.00%
6 More of a fruit squash than a whisky, but use it as a delicious,ready-mixed summer drink.
