Glengoyne Introduces NEW 25YO

Posted on 28 Mar 2014 by Glengoyne Distillery

Glengoyne is expanding its whisky portfolio with the release of an outstanding 25YO bottling. Matured exclusively in hand-selected sherry casks for a quarter of a century, this unique malt is an important addition to the Glengoyne collection, which includes the 10, 12, 15, 18, 21 Year Old and Cask Strength malts.

The malt is presented in a new heavy bespoke bottle and outer box. The bottle features a fine metal stopper, crafted cartouche and delicately branded neck tag and is attractively displayed in an oak box interior, which includes an engraved plinth. The elegant exterior has a refined feather pattern subtly varnished on the pack. 

Commenting on the new malt, Iain Weir, Marketing Director for Ian Macleod Distillers, said:  “The Glengoyne 25YO is an extremely special malt. Matured in our traditional dunnage warehouses for 25 years in the finest European oak sherry casks, unchill-filtered and bottled as taste insists at 48%ABV, the result is a flavour of soft oak, cinnamon, stewed fruits and a Seville marmalade tang.  A perfect after dinner dram.” 

The Glengoyne 25YO will be available from April. The UK RRP for the 70cl bottle is £250.
