A new addition to the Glengoyne core range, this single malt bottling has spent a quarter of a century maturing in first-fill European oak sherry casks kept in traditional dunnage-style warehouses. Owned by Ian Macleod Distillers, the Glengoyne Distillery is located in the Scottish Highlands. It prides itself in using the longest distillation in Scotland, which prolongs the interaction between the spirit and the still. The malt is non-chill filtered, but may contain additional coloring. Bottled at 48% ABV.

Tasting Notes

"Malts of this maturity can sometimes run a little hot and short on flavor, but this one wears it well. Smooth and rich toffee, cashews, almonds, vanilla and malted cocoa mix with edgier tones of berries, orange and grapefruit zest, black tea and honeysuckle. It's a fine special occasion dram that's a bit under the radar, but worth seeking out. "
