Glengoyne 16 yo (1998), SMWS 123.9, 56,6 %

The name of this single cask whisky from the Scotch Malt Whisky Society is “The big fat tipsy wedding” and is from a 1st fill ex-sherry butt. The outcome of this cask was 608 sherry bomb bottles. The smell is just filled with sherry notes. 
Sherry and power. After a couple of minutes in the glass it settles down a bit and some notes of fresh fruits appear.

The taste is just sherry, sherry and sherry. Nothing more, nothing less. In the finish you get some honey sweetness with the sherry. This whisky is almost “just” sherry. I love sherry, but I must admit that I miss some complexity.

This is not a whisky that will blow you away, but is excellent for a winter’s day in front of the fireplace. Nice sherry with a lot of power which will warm you in this cold time. I will rate this 88/100 (21/23/22/22).
