Have a good day.
George Connell officially started Glengoyne in 1833, but good old George has been making Whisky long before that. Anyway, the point is that Glengoyne distillery has been making single malt Whisky for a long time. The distillery is located at Dumgoyne, north of Glasgow. It lies in the cross path of the Highlands and Lowlands of Scotland, meaning Glengoyne's Whisky is quite uniquely made in the Highlands, but aged in the Lowlands.
Famously, they say the Glengoyne distilling process takes longer than any other in Scotland in order to deliver their unique richness and character. To understand the signature Glengoyne style you need to know three things. First, the malt is indirectly dried with warm air (no peat or coils). Second, they make extensive use of Sherry casks for aging across the entire core range. Third, they exclusively use “Golden Promise” barley — which has a lower grain yield, but higher quality.
So, Glengoyne’s got game, we’ve established that. If you’re looking for a gateway into their wonderful world, we’ve found a great place to start. Glengoyne 10YO forms part of their core range and represents a beautiful illustration of what this distillery is capable of. Light, smooth and approachable, we can characterize this Whisky as your classic everyday dram. Thoroughly enjoyable. It will certainly make everyday fun. You’ll be sorry when it’s goyne.
