Glengoyne 10 Year
Glengoyne // Highlands, Scotland
Glengoyne, in the Scottish Highlands, has been in operation since 1833. They pride themselves on having a labor intensive process, from seasoning their own barrels for 6 years and drying their own barley. They use absolutely no peat in their production.
Single MaltDistilled in pot stills from 100% malted barley, produced at one distillery, aged in barrels; if Scotch or Irish, must be aged for at least three years.
"This is a whisky that highly benefits from a drop or two of water to open up. Once it does, it tastes of tart apples, caramel and toasted caramel with a bit of milk chocolate. It has a slightly bitter espresso finish and goes down a little hot, but still a pleasing example of a 10 year old, unpeated Scotch."
