This Glengoyne was matured exclusively in ex-Bourbon casks, and bottled specifically for the US with the Kosher market in mind. The nose is lighter and more aromatic than traditional Glengoynes matured in a mix of Bourbon and ex-Sherry casks, with a good maltiness and notes of allspice, honey, vanilla, banana, and coconut. The taste starts off honey-sweet, followed quickly by a strong bite of black pepper that fades to reveal vanilla, malt, banana, coconut, and a hint of molasses. The finish is lingering and subtle with touches of banana, coconut, and vanilla. (June, 2014)
