Tasting Notes and Technical Description:
The whisky greets the eye with a luxurious amber hue, tinged with old gold. Its visual character foreshadows the depth and complexity that await in the ensuing sips.
The olfactory journey begins with an arresting blend of dried fruits, notably sultanas and figs, married harmoniously with the vanilla sweetness of oak. A waft of toasted almond and cinnamon provides a nuanced spice to this complex nose.
This 18-year-old Highland masterpiece showcases a luxuriously full-bodied profile. Initial notes of rich, stewed apple and pear provide a fruity opening, succeeded by a torrent of complex flavors including butterscotch, toasted oak, and a trace of dark chocolate.
The finish is long-lasting, warm, and slightly drying. It leaves behind an enduring, elegant impression of oak, coupled with a faint whiff of heather and tobacco, embodying the very essence of the Highlands.
With a rich, creamy texture, the whisky flows smoothly over the palate. Its body is robust, yet it maintains a sense of elegance and restraint, epitomizing the balance that characterizes premium Scotch whiskies.

I have to admit,the Glengoyne 18 is an incredible sherry bomb and is worth every penny. I would love to pull the trigger on the 21 and 25,but out of my price range of sanity.I think if I could have one whisky to drink for the rest of time,this would be it.
