Launched in May 2009 only 250 decanters of this rare malt were bottled, each in a Glencairn Crystal hand-blown decanter, individually numbered with an etching of the distillery.
These are presented in an 11-times lacquered piano-finished oak presentation box, embellished with gold plates on the front and hand-stitched cream leather interior. Each decanter comes with a dark brown leather and gold foil bound book signed by the Distillery manager, Robbie Hughes and containing tasting notes and background information on Glengoyne.
Review and Tasting
Sampled on 08/10/2012
Deep golden with virgin olive oil-like green tinges.
Red apple skin dominates with prunes, fresh pear, crème brulee and strawberry meringue.
Complex, integrated, dry palate has black cherry, coffee, fruitcake/rancio notes with wafts of smoke, dried hops and just enough oaky garnish.
Long dry finish has smoky fresh lemon thyme/grapefruit notes.
