A bright and fresh Glengoyne Single Malt that brings you as close to the grain as possible.

Originally called “Burnfoot Distillery,” George Connell officially started Glengoyne in 1833 — after the Excise Tax Law of 1823 made it cost effective to do so. The fact that good old George had been hauling full casks of Whisky out of the tree-lined glen since 1820 is purely a coincidence. Anyway, the point is that they have been making Single Malt Whisky here for a long time. Famously, they say the Glengoyne distilling process takes longer than any other in Scotland in order to deliver their unique richness and character.

Glengoyne 15 Year Old Single Malt has an interesting twist to its story. The aging formula is straight forward — fifteen years in a combination of ex-Bourbon, ex-Sherry, and refill casks. But the twist comes at the beginning where the malted barley is air dried. Not peat, no burners, no gas, just air. That process is a LOT slower then modern powered drying machines or any sort. But thats the point. You are not only tasting a well-aged, balance dram of Single Malt wonderfulness, you are sipping a more pure expression of the grain itself… and we think that it's pretty cool.

Single Malt Scotch Whisky is made in Scotland using a pot still distillation process at a single distillery, with malted barley as the only grain ingredient. It must be matured in oak casks in Scotland for at least three years (most single malts are matured longer).

William,
Incredibly smooth and a great option for a scotch lover that isn't as into peat.

Very good scotch smooth, like it a lot and was, visited the distillery after I found it. Down side is that the price has almost doubled everywhere since.

Lewis,
Solid Highlander in the sour/meaty tradition of Craigellachie. Cured meat, malty sweetness, a touch of bitterness. Demands 10-15 mins in the glass before it opens up.

Russ,
A very smooth whisky. Prominent notes of butterscotch in both the nose and palate. A very popular dram every time I have brought it out.

Initially floral then butterscotch in the nose. Lovely & smooth.

Piotr,
Rich, beautiful nose. Fantastic finish, quite surprising in comparison to the smell, oak, oak. I love oak finish. A little spicy and dry but sweet (really like this oppositions) could be a little sweeter, but maybe I have one of these “sweet days”...

Mark,
For the price point really smooth and easy to drink neat. The taste doesn’t blow me away, but good for casually sipping. I strongly recommend going on a tour of their distillery and some of the later years are amazing.

I read a lot about this bottle before buying. Maybe I was expecting too much. It's OK, but not remarkable.
