Glengoyne Single Malt Whisky 12 year old 57.2% 70cl

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
