Glengoyne 10 Year Old Highland Single Malt Scotch Whisky

70cl 40% vol (43% USA)

Fresh green apples, toffee and a hint of nuttiness. This is the taste of distilling slower than anyone else in Scotland, of barley we dry by air – never peat – and of oak casks we select by hand. Just as we’ve always done.

Beautifully clean...the barley is almost in concentrate form with a marmalade sweetness adding richness. Incredibly long and refined for such as light malt. Proof that to create balance you do not have to have peat at work. The secret is the intensity of the barley intermingling with oak. Not a single negative note from first to last sip and now a touch of oil and coffee has upped the intensity further.
