Glengoyne Cask Strength Batch 2 Highland single malt Scotch whiskey. This is the taste of Scotland’s slowest distillation, bottled as tradition insists: at cask strength, un-chillfiltered.
Nose: Warm baked custard, peppered strawberries, digestive biscuits, soft oak and a short sherbet tingle.
Taste: Thick rosehip syrup, Demerara sugar developing into a spicy, gooseberry dryness. Wonderful balance, nothing dominates.
Finish: Intensified syrup and green fruits.
Glengoyne Distillery was established as Burnfoot of Drumgoyne Distillery in 1833 by George Connel in Scotland’s Highland whisky region although its warehouses rest across the road in the Lowland whisky region. All the malt is dried by hot air and so all Glengoyne whisky is unpeated and on site maturation is in sherry and bourbon casks in addition to some Japanese and Scottish oak casks. Glengoyne Distillery has a visitor centre and offers distillery tours.
