Highland or Lowland, what land?
 
The Glengoyne distillery was founded in 1833 by George Connell at Dumgoyne, north of Glasgow. It lies in the crosspath of the Highlands and Lowlands of Scotland, meaning Glengoyne's Whisky is quite uniquely made in the Highlands, but aged in the Lowlands. Furthermore, this distillery doesn't use peat to dry their barely, instead they use warm air - much to the satisfaction of their fanbase. Glengoyne is one of the two remaining producers that use Golden Promise barley (the other is The Macallan) which is considered of higher quality and more expensive to grow than high-yield commercial strains.
 
The Glengoyne 12 Year Old is aged in first-fill Hogshead ex-Bourbon barrels and first fill Sherry casks, among others, that's why it's recognizable as a sherried Highland-style Whisky. As is the practice and tradition at Glengoyne, the 12 Year Old isn't peated at all, as the barley is air-dried, thus its PPM (Phenols-Per-Million) value is zero.

Eric,
I keep my bar stocked with this one all the time. It's light and easy to drink, with some lemon that I love.

Stephen,
Loved it. Smooth, very drinkable with hints of spices and fruits. Didn't need it but great with a drop or two of water. Thanks for the recommendation.

Took me by surprise on how smooth it actually is. A lot going on in this one. I think I like it better then the 10 year. Next on my list is the 15 year.

Wow, this is really great Scotch! If you're a fiddich lover, this will be right in your wheelhouse. Bold flavor but oh so smooth on the tongue and after the swallow. Snag a bottle!

Correct, big vanilla bomb with some oak, light spices and oil coming up halfway and stays present in the aftertaste. Good, not great.

Sherry sweet nose. Taste of caramel.

Kim,
You can really taste the apple in this one! With some water, some buttery notes gets a bit clearer. The finish is spicy with a lingering bitterness.
