Glengoyne distillery prides itself on having the "slowest distillation process in Scotland," with 6 years of seasoning their own oak casks before aging. They also completely air dry their own barley instead of using peat. The name "Glen Guin" translates to "herd of wild geese," referring to the distillery's surroundings. Non chill-filtered.

Tasting Notes

"A very clean tasting Scotch - it isn't terribly complex, but sometimes that's what fits the mood. There are deep, rich flavors of dark and milk chocolate, honey, toffee, sweet biscuit and toasty oak, set off by faint floral nuances and juicy red apple. A good whisky for those who prefer an unfussy, sweeter style of Scotch."
