Launched in October 2009, like all of Glengoyne’s Single Malts, this 12 year old addition to the core range is made with unpeated barley but unusually for Glengoyne, 25% of the casks used are first-fill ex-bourbon. This is the first Glengoyne to use bourbon wood in one of its core range bottlings.

Review and Tasting

Sampled on 07/10/2012

Appearance

Bright golden in colour.

Aroma

Malty lemon barley water, chamois leather and coconut oil with lemon zest, shortbread, honeycomb and floral honeysuckle.

Taste

Slightly sweet with an oily, creamy mouth feel, new leather and shortbread, good sherried notes, white pepper and gingerbread. Oaky notes emerge towards the end turning the palate dry.

Aftertaste

Continues the dry theme with barley shortbread, delicate oils and lingering sherry. Faint rubbery note emerges. Judiciously used sherry - great value for money.
