This could be our favorite Glengoyne, aged to perfection with a gorgeous mouth-feel and Sherried palate.
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.
Previously, one of Glengoyne’s most popular Single Malts was a seventeen year-old. When they revamped their lineup in 2012 the replaced that fine dram with an even better one — Glengoyne 18 Year Old. All that time was spent in a combination of fist-fill and refill Sherry casks. That combination is magical for a Highlander — creating a luxurious mouthfeel and rich, warm palate. It’s a bit less sweet than The Macallan, but has all the Sherried character and complexity.
