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.

Whisky distilling goes way back to 1494 when the first recorded batch was made by a posse of monks who acquired about 60 gallons of barley and decided to turn it into "aqua vitae". They created the first 1,500 bottles of Scotch in History.
Whisky or Whiskey? The spelling differs geographically. In Scotland, Japan, and some other parts of the world, distilleries usually spell it Whisky; in Ireland and the USA, they spell it Whiskey.
Can Scotch go bad? Technically, an unopened bottle of Scotch can last forever. Air is the only true evil to Whisky; once the liquid is oxidized it is no longer immortal. After opening, as long as you store your Whisky in a cool, dry place, it will last another 5 years.
Glengoyne emphasizes the importance of the environment and sustainability. They started an action called "Plan Bee," and constructed two beehives at their distillery.
90% of all Scotch Whiskies sold are Blends.
Blended Whiskies are the result of years of craftsmanship and dedication. A master blender does not simply wake up one day with a profound ability to create a cohesive and enjoyable liquid. From nosing the liquid to working out quantities of each different grain and malt to go into the blend, a master blender can take years, if not decades, to train.
