Sherry first, ask questions later.

1833 was the year when one George Campbell founded a small distillery in a forested valley in the Scottish Highlands and named it Glengoyne ("Glen Guin" meaning the Valley of wild geese). The establishment has a peculiar feature - it's situated on the very border between the Highlands and the Lowlands and even though the maturation warehouses are on the other side of the street, the booze is distilled in one region, and aged in the other.

Another speciality is the barley they use. Glengoyne is one of two distilleries left using Golden Promise barley, a spring sort of higher quality. Their Cask Strength collection is a special line of rich, peppery and fruity Whiskies that are matured in Sherry casks and bottled at cask strength. This very expression is the sixth batch and it's the first one to be 100% matured in Sherry oak barrels. It's a delightful child of time and cask, a marvelous liquid gold from the Highlands.
