Glengoyne Cask Strength Batch 8

The Glengoyne distillery sits at the foot of Dumgoyne Hill near Loch Lomond. The distillery itself is very small, neat and picturesque. Being just North of Glasgow, it is one of the easiest Scottish distilleries to get to and they put on a great tour too!

Glengoyne are one of the most sustainable distilleries in Scotland, they donate to local nature projects, they are fully powered by renewable energy and have recently moved into new eco-friendly packaging made with recycled materials sourced within 30 miles of the distillery, with no plastics used.

Glengoyne's stills are Scotland's slowest, this encourages the formation of "esters" giving Glengoyne its characteristically sweet, fruity taste. No peat is used in the barley drying process, allowing the subtle, complex flavours of slow distillation and exquisite wood to shine through. Glengoyne's natural colour comes from time and wood alone.

Bottled at the strength it emerges from the cask, this delicious amber gold dram is un-chillfiltered, unfussed and untamed; the closest you'll get to opening the cask yourself. A peppery tingle gives way to rich flavours of ripe banana, digestive biscuits and cinnamon.

Matured in one third sherry casks, two thirds refill casks and a smattering of bourbon barrels. Big and bold with a gloriously thick mouthfeel and a delightful, lingering, oak-infused finish.

Palate: Caramelised nuts, crumbly toffee, dates, a good kick of black pepper and just a hint of toasted barley.
