Highland Single Malt Scotch Whisky
Bottled by: Douglas Laing 70cl / 48.4%
Indie bottlings of Glengoyne are relatively rare, so it's a joy to see this 12-year-old Glengoyne 2008 bottled by Douglas Laing for their Old Particular series. Douglas Laing never colour or chill filter their single malts, so you can be assured that this whisky's lovely golden colour is all natural.
Glengoyne 2008 Cask #DL15409 was a refill sherry butt, bottled as a 12-year-old in October 2021 (just shy of its 13th birthday), and yielded 539 bottles at the standard Old Particular strength of 48.4%. This should be an absolute gem.

Official Tasting Notes
Nose: Full of dark then red fruit, from its sherry cask history, plus a subtle array of burnt spices and malt.
Palate: Chewy and intense, with fruit-flavoured toffee, wonderful spices, burnt toast and a hint of mint.
Finish: Big on dried citrus, running to a gristy sugar-inclined malt, graduating to a late dry mixed spices.
