The same traditional methods and basic ingredients, barley, water and yeast, have been used to make Scotch whisky for over 500 years and Glengoyne is no different. However there is one subtle difference which does set Glengoyne apart from other malt whiskies in a class of its own. Read More »
A 20cl bottle of 15 year old Glengoyne. Famously the only distillery where the malt is produced in the Highlands but matured in the Lowlands, with the road splitting the two being the boundary. This has notes of vanilla and spice and is complex, sweet and rounded.
A 20cl bottle of 18 year old Glengoyne. The distillery claims to have the slowest distillation in Scotland. This bottling has notes of vanilla and apples with a luxurious richness due in part to its high proportion of first-fill sherry casks.
Glengoyne is one of the only Scottish whiskies to be distilled from unpeated malt - the malt is allowed to dry naturally before fermentation and distillation begin, resulting in an elegant, medium-bodied style.
A 20cl bottle of Glengoyne's 21 year old sherry matured whisky. Noticeably deeper than younger expressions, with delicious rich fruity and oaky notes - the darker colour and long finish are testament to the extra years in the sherrywood.
A sweet and rounded 15 year old dram from Glengoyne, made using air dried barley and about as unsmoky as a whisky can get. It's a rich mix of 1st fill sherry and bourbon matured whisky, rounded out with some refill casks.
An old bottling of Glengoyne 17 year old. Famous for being the distillery where the whisky is made in the Highlands, but matured in the lowlands, as the warehouses are across the road, which is the border, from the distillery. We estimate this bottle dates from the 1980s.
A beautiful hogshead of Glengoyne 1990 bottled for The Whisky Exchange. Creamy melted vanilla ice-cream on thick crust baked apple pie. Glengoyne's lack of peat leads some to regard it as a worthy but dull whisky, but the truth is that the spirit made here is of remarkable quality, and when it gets into the right cask the results are magical.
