Highland Single Malt Scotch Whisky
Distillery Bottling 70cl / 43%
A smart updated package for the 2022 edition of the much-loved Glengoyne 21-year-old, which has already picked up a Gold medal at the 2022 International Spirits Challenge.
Matured, as ever, in top quality sherry casks (predominantly first fill), this unpeated Glengoyne 21-year-old remains a thing of beauty. An all-time classic after-dinner dram that shows why Glengoyne is a watchword for both elegance and consistency.
|Cask Type||Predominantly 1st Fill European Oak Sherry Casks.|
Official Tasting Notes
Appearance: Deep Copper, meandering legs.
Nose: Red apples, spicy strudel, toffee, sherry and dried fruits. Christmas cake in a glass.
Palate: Lots of Sherry, honey, oak with a developing aromatic sensation. Ends with a heavenly cinnamon nip.
Finish: Long, sherry, spicy, warm and dry.
I'm a big fan of Glengoyne and this proudly takes the #2 spot in my GG ratings. It's a delight to drink and should be for the price. I've noticed with the newer GGs, they are moving toward a similar taste and just as easy drinkability. So it might suit your pocketbook to go for the 10 or 15 year ones, which are also excellent and about 1/4-1/3 the price. However, this is a keeper for the upper shelf.
