Has the 10 yr old improved? It seems to be a lot weightier these days than it was a few years ago.
The 17 yr old is smoother than a smoothfish's smooth bits after it has been put through a smoothing machine and then ironed until it is nice and smooth and then eaten by the man who taught Roger Moore how to be smooth.
And that's dead smooth!
You weren't a writer for BlackAdder, were you?
I agree the 10yo punches above its weight. For a malt that markets itself as light and unpeated, it shows surprising depth of flavour and fullness of mouthfeel. And yet it isn't spirity like some other 10 year olds that display a bit of youth.
I recall the 17yo being a bit more floral on the nose, but milder in palate and finish.
I picked up the Glengoyne 17 yr old cheap but I don't have a large wallet anyway.
If you can afford the £37 it costs from the distillery then it is worth trying. Or you could go to a miniature stockist and try it that way.
It's very smooth.
