Glengoyne Burnfoot (Travel Retail)
This dram was tasted as part of the 12 Drams of Xmas series
Day 2 was provided to us by David Carson (@TIA568B) from the Glenuntitled.com blog.
I've swapped samples with David a number of times and have an idea of the types of whiskies, and distilleries, which he likes and this influenced a part of my guess on this. Now like the rest of thee i am going to show my guesses and how bad they were so no laughing.
On the basis of knowing David enjoys his trips to Cambelltown, and in particular the Springbank distillery, i went with the Springbank 10 Year Old at 54%, i was quite a bit wrong and David's actual choice was a brilliant Highland whisky. This was my first time trying the Glengoyne Burnfoot and it's one i would seek out in future.
Instantly thinking a touch of wine, very malty and cerealy, slightly fruity, very interesting nose
has a hint of wine in there im almost certain, really quite fruity compeletely different to the nose
grows and grows, don't think it's hugely strong but has a kick.
