COLOR
Very pale straw and/or honey.  Its color is like that of the inside of a grapefruit peel.  Its appearance is that of white wine.
NOSE
Sweet floral citrus, grass and/or hay dominate the pungent nose of this cask-strength single malt.  Deeper down, it unfolds with subtle expressions of honey, salt, cereal, dark chocolate, butter, and wood.
FLAVOR
Although strong and pungent, this single malt is sweet and has a very strong expression of citrus.  One can also taste hints of pepper, oil, honey, vanilla, hay, and salt.  
FINISH
Medium long to long, the Sovereign Cask provides a reasonably complex finish that includes citrus, salt, pepper, and honey.  It definitely has a hot finish.
COMMENTS
The Glengoyne Sovereign Cask is both interesting and forgettable in one fell swoop.  It's a smooth pleasant dram and packs a punch, but in the end, one doesn't ask oneself "where can I buy more of this?"
