Glengoyne’s classic single malt, but strong enough to curl you kilt.

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.

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. Only two distilleries use this rare and expensive grain — the other is The Macallan. Glengoyne Cask Strength delivers this sensuous, signature style at a jaw-dropping 58.2% ABV. 

Smartass Corner:
The boundary between the Highlands and the Lowlands — called “The Highland Line” — runs right through the distillery grounds just outside Glasgow. This means that the still-house sits officially in the Highlands, while the aging warehouse sits officially in the Lowlands.

Paul,
Nothing too special.

Deric,
Delicious. It was the only bottle in my power rangers taster that wasn’t shattered and wasted in shipping
 
Michael
Michael,
Burns a bit going down but has the flavor to back it up. Not a bad dram.
 
Martin
Martin,
Wonderful full flavor. Add a few drops of water to open it up and minimize the initial bite. Good aftertaste. Would certainly enjoy a bottle.
 
David
David,
As far as cask strengths go, it's very obviously high ABV. There isn't quite enough character or complexity to mask the strong alcohol bite, but this alone doesn't disqualify it from being a decent whisky. Fruit variations and breads stand out in the taste, and the strong attack fades slowly into a pleasant finish. Not a strong performer, but it has a place in whiskey collections.
 
Kevin
Kevin,
Smells like sweet hay, tastes just a bit sweet, and finishes with black pepper spice.
 
Jeremy
Jeremy,
Sweet and spicy with a strong bite. Very nice!
 
Greg
Greg,
Really enjoyed the flavor here, but I would recommend that if your really interested in taste, add a little water to this one. It cuts the burn and really lets the flavors come out of this one.

Jose,
it was a little rough but it smoothed out a little but not enough to make it great

Wow, that's got some punch. Strong sherry that lingers long after the taste. Very solid. Not peaty, just a nice and enjoyable scotch.
