    So, I think I'll be doing a bottle kill week soon, though with dieting it might be more a month (trying to cut back on drinks during the week). Anyway this one is on that list with about 3-4 pours left (conservative pours). So lets get into this one, clearly I must like it if it's near death. Color - I tend to avoid this but as it's a a brand know for sherry...its' pretty golden. Now that said this one is a mix of sherry and bourbon with a bit more focus on the bourbon barrels from the label. So at least for me this was my second buy from Glengoyne and so far my two buys weren't sherry bombs (I have had the 25 which is and is amazing). So just a warning for those who might be expect their stuff to be all sherry, it isn't. Nose - vanilla and oak for sure. Pineapple and white sugars. A good swirl gives me a bit of berry. I get a bit of alcohol which I didn't expect at 43%. Taste - vanilla, tropical fruits, oak, some spice, some candy, more vanilla, baked goods. I really do think this is a quality whisky and it drinks much more full bodied than the 43% would indicate which is a huge win for me. I however really just can't justify another bottle for me which makes that this is in the kill zone a bit sad. This is quality whisky but at the same time a bit boring. I went into this one looking for sherry and I didn't get it. I came back looking for a great bourbon finish and I got the vanillas but I didn't get the complexity I want there either. This is a classic example of a 2 star whisky for me. Everything is good about it, but nothing is special. It's in some ways a good price for the age and the use of some sherry casks but it's kinda also over priced. I'll have to go back to them but I felt the 12 was more what I wanted from the brand. Anyway if this is your profile I think this is a reasonable buy if you want to venture into something new, but otherwise I'd not look for this one.
