Glengoyne has unveiled a new 15 Year Old Highland Single Malt, celebrating the contrast and harmony created by the interplay of its sherry and bourbon casks. The new dram will become a staple of the Highland distiller’s award-winning core collection.
As Scotland’s slowest distilled le malt whisky, Glengoyne new make has a light and fruity signature spirit style. To complement this, the new 15 Year Old marries together whiskies wholly matured in first fill bourbon and sherry casks to deliver sweet dark orchard fruits from the former and oaky spice and vanilla from the latter.
The result is a complex dram that’s recognisably Glengoyne – but seen from a different perspective. The whisky has a natural light amber hue and a rich bouquet of flavours; on the nose you can expect malt flour, fresh hay, dried fruits, citrus and Rosehip.
The palate is clean, with a gentle sweetness and a hint of tropical fruit. Cinnamon, vanilla and apple combine to evoke memories of a freshly baked apple pie. A pleasant dry finish is complemented by gentle spice and lingering oak.
