Highland Single Malt Scotch Whisky
Distillery Bottling 70cl / 50.7%
A very special bottling of Glengoyne, this 1984 vintage 36-year-old was a single refill sherry cask selected by three generations of the Russells, the family behind Ian MacLeod Distillers, which has owned Glengoyne distillery since 2003.
This 36-year-old Glengoyne 1984 Cask 1549 was a refill sherry butt that has yielded 402 bottles at the natural cask strength of 50.7%. This prestige Glengoyne is one of the oldest single cask official bottlings from Glengoyne ever bottled and is destined to be a landmark release for the distillery.
The bottle's very smart gift box even features an engravable plaque inside should you wish to have it personalised.
The Russel Cask
|Cask Type||Refill Sherry Butt|
This is a cask at its peak. Being a refill sherry cask. it has taken time to slowly build up colour and cask richness, leaving the spirit space to mature, develop and deepen.
It has classic old whisky character which balances perfectly with the slowly sourced oak notes. The wood adds weight and richness on the finish without overpowering the fruitiness of the spirit.
It has the combination of a great viscosity on the palate while still allowing the light fruity top notes to come to the fore.
