Glengoyne Cask Strength
“Digestive biscuits, ripe bananas and a hint of pepper. This is the taste of Scotland’s slowest distillation, bottled as tradition insists: at cask strength, un-chillfiltered. Like every Glengoyne, the amber hue is created by time and oak, nothing more.”
Where to Buy:
In the stillness of this quiet glen, patience is rewarded. For every minute other whiskies spend in their stills, Glengoyne spends three. Only then is it transferred to casks themselves prepared for six years. This is the Glengoyne Way.
Tawny golden color
The classic example of these European oak sherry cask aromas. Raisins, figs, strawberry jam, syrup. A hint of vanilla, but nothing much. Heather honey. Simple layers, but expressed very well indeed.
Tons of flavor and a superb chewy texture. Molasses. Figs as well as exceptionally rich dried fruits.
