Andrew's Tasting Note for Batch 004:
Nose: big, rich and nutty; very spicy, brown sugar melting on hot oatmeal; dark chocolate shavings and rough new leather; Christmas cake-y with fig jam and quince paste.
Palate: big, round, sherried and nutty; firm juicy malt; polished wood and more rough new leather; a bit hit of tobacco and boozy fruits; rum soaked Christmas cake and more dark chocolate shavings; jammy with rich fortified wine; hot and decadent spice.
Finish: medium in length but very bold; more Christmas cake, leather and spices.
Comment: Glengoyne has not disappointed in the bang for buck department here; it is probably young, lots of malt, but layered; big, bold and rich.
Distiller's Tasting Note for Batch 004
Nose: Soft oaky notes, custard notes, strawberries, black pepper, digestive biscuits and a sherbet fizz.
Palate: Spicy, gooseberry notes, Demerara sugar, rosehip syrup and a full, long finish.
