Glengoyne 15 Year
Glengoyne // Highlands, Scotland
Glengoyne distillery prides itself on its slow, meticulous process from barrel to bottle. All of their barley is air dried with no use of peat. This whisky was first aged in ex-bourbon and then given a hit of sherry cask aging at the end.
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.
"Very creamy and smells like fresh baked shortbread. Lots of vanilla comes through, but nicely balanced with subtle spice and a bit of a marmalade tang. Very smooth and not too sweet."
