Highland region. Southwest district.
Unlike most other single malts Glengoyne has been preserving the essence of its flavour for decades by using air-dried barley rather than barley dried using harsh peat smoke. The result is a subtler, complex whisky in which all of the delicate flavours are freely allowed to express themselves.
Glengoyne Single Malt Whisky 12 year old 57.2% 70cl Tasting Notes
Distillery bottling at Cask Strength.
Appearance: Amber, syrupy. Sauternes.
Nose: Oak, sherry, digestive biscuits, sweet oatcakes, banana, apricot, peaches, marzipan and peardrops. Does not prick the nose, despite high strength.
Mouthfeel: Viscous, rich and filling
Initial Taste: Smooth, sweet start, with some sherry and chocolate.
After Water: Becomes slightly waxy, with pepper at the tail.
Finish: Very long, stays with you until morning!
Comments: First released September 2004, this is a welcome addition to the family. This is 100 Proof, but you'd never know it. It slips down a treat and is probably at its best without water
