TASTING NOTE: Probably the most highly-regarded malt in the regular Glengoyne lineup, the 17 year old represents a direct progression from its younger siblings. According to the distillers, The balance has artfully changed. A more concentrated palate of flavors has emerged ... Citrus and cedar notes on the slightly grassy nose, with a hint of plain chocolate. Medium in body, with more plain chocolate notes, plus raisins, orange, vanilla, and malt. Lengthy in the finish, with milky coffee, sherry, leather, and citrus spice. Score: 88 (Gavin D. Smith, Whisky Advocate, Fall 2011) Price $ 99.95
