Glengoyne Legacy Series: Chapter One 2019.
We are delighted to have in stock the first bottling of this new series Chapter One, this first release honours Cochrane Cartwright, the legendary distillery manager who transformed the distillery in 1869 by slowing the stills, making them the slowest in Scotland, and introducing sherry cask maturation to Glengoyne. These changes brought a remarkable amplification of the sweet, fruity characteristics for which Glengoyne is now renowned.
Chapter One has been matured in first fill European oak Oloroso sherry casks, representing those precious sherry casks that Cochrane Cartwright first brought to Glengoyne.
Glengoyne is one of the few distilleries that uses absolutely no peat to dry their malted barley, instead simply using air. They also have the slowest distillation process, resulting in a beautifully smooth and easy-drinking whisky.
Nose : Full and rich, sticky toffee pudding with dates and vanilla custard, warm pear and cinnamon.
Palate : Mouth coating and thick; layers of sweet, fruity sherry notes over gentle oak with sultanas and vanilla.
